    So now that the software is out, I was going to buy the official one just because I feel like it's the right thing to do. I was wondering, has anyone been able to go from the 2.0 free illegal firmware to the 2.0 official purchased software? Thanks.

    Why wouldnt it work? I think you can just download it true iTunes and restore. Maybe you need to downgrade to 1.1.4 for iTunes to tell you there's an update. I dunno.

    I've got the free one just now because I couldn't wait longer lol..... But i'm thinking of restoring and getting the official because my ipod seems to take ages, and i mean ages, to connect to itunes now, might just be a software update thing though, but its annoying me since it used to just connect fast and i was sorted. Also my Ipod is really slow now and sometimes takes 2minutes to take a action. That might just be because of the apps i've got though.

    edit------------

    And now its just restarted by itself......

    It's gonna take a while. You'll have to get iTunes 7.5 and then restore to 1.1.4, and then go back to itunes 7, and then buy 2.0.

    i doubt that there will be any difference between the version that was leaked yesterday and the version that will be released, but then again i may be wrong.

    The 2.0 firmware that you downloaded was official, straight from the apple website. However, the method used to download it wasn't.
