    I have a problem downloading 2.0 firmware. It appears as if it has completed the download, but after it shows the total amount of data downloaded (which corresponds to the amount of data that the file is supposed to be) if gives me a message for a connection time out. This is very bizzare. Any help anyone? I searched the forum but did not find anything relevant. Thanks for your help

    Thanks for the replies, but do you know what might be preventing me from downloading it from itunes? I am currently running 1.14.

    Thanks

    you could try making sure all ipsw files on your pc/mac were deleted and then stick the ipod into recovery mode and click restore....... itunes should (in theory) download the firmware for you to install, you will need iTunes 7.7 for all this as alll earlier versions don't like 2.0

    Thank you very much. I will try this. Where are these files stored?

    I have mailed apple support too, and await a reply. Will update here so people with similar problems can benefit.

    Also, after i restore will it revert to the default (factory) passcode? I do not remember what this is...

    Umm, I had something like this happen to me. Try going into

    C:/Documents and Setting/YOUR NAME/Application Data (hidden)/Apple Computer/iTunes/iPod Software Updates

    See if the 2.0 file is there, or try having the folder open while you download it and see if you can see the file grow.
