    I want to restore my jailbroken touch and just go back to the regular version but it's not giving me the option to buy the upgrade for some reason.

    Yes people on engadget are saying the same thing. Some are also saying they have had their charge refunded.

    A friend and I who both bought it on Tuesday haven't been charged yet, I'm sure iTunes UK is normally fairly quick to charge, and my friend also says in his order history there is no longer an invoice number for it, only the order number.

    Maybe Apple are backing down?

    We can but hope

    I certainly hope they make it free, but I also hope they refund everyone who paid for it.

    I just started to download the firmware update. So I won't be able to download the apps? If so I guess I'm not doing it now because I am going away for the weekend and don't want to be without mail.

    Hopefully they bring back the option to buy it soon because I'd like to just buy it as soon as possible. Don't really feel like staying with a jb touch anymore

    well I'm checking itunes now and don't see the buy option anywhere, unless you have to have the ipod plugged into the computer in order for the buy option to pop up?

    I just go to the iTunes Store home page, then right toward the middle is the iPod touch January Software Upgrade.

    Edit: After seeing the post about buying it w/o the touch connected, I still get the option. I think Apple has some slight bugs to work out.

    You need to update the firmware to 1.1.3 before you can buy the app pack.

    Can anybody reaffirm this?

    If this is true, I might just update.

    I bought the update on Tuesday, saw the decrease in balance by $20 on my iTunes account on Wednesday, and then from Thursday on I am back to where I was balance wise before I bought the upgrade. Needless to say, I am happy.:)

    Really? That is pretty interesting news! Could be evidence that Apple plans to offer the update for free?

    I just bought it about 3 hours ago... But to see the buy button you need to meet a few requirements (mine did not say buy untill all were met btw) You must have the iPod Touch connected to your computer, it must be 1.1.3 already, and you must have iTunes 7.6 installed. I had all but iTunes 7.6, and it says all of this info on the page where you try to buy it. All the people probably trying to get the apps still probably have 7.5 because they want the option to downgrade to 1.1.1 if they do not like it I'm guessing (apple fixed the downgrade option in 7.6).
