    Is there a way to install manually an update to the iPod Touch without jailbreaking it ?

    I got the 2.0 firmware file but I don't know how to add it to my ipod

    EDIT:
    nevermind i got it hehe

    And how did you accomplish the install of 2.0 from the downloaded file?

    all you need to do is restore in itunes 7.7 using the 2.0 (build 5A345) firmware file.

    if using a pc: hold shift key press restore and point iTunes to the ipsw file

    if using mac: hold alt key press restore and point iTunes to the ipsw file

    when its restored you will be presented with a freshly restored 2.0 with no jailbreaking needed.
