    I jailbroke my ipod touch and i dont like it so i want to restore but i deleted my gm ipod touch firmware.... I might want to jailbreak later but it only supports gm. Is the stock apple firmware the same as the GM Firmware?

    The GM is a beta firmware and will expire after (likely) a couple of weeks. You'll be better off installing the actual firmware.

    The GM will not expire.

    You can jailbreak the official public firmware with the updated RedSn0w that also fixes iBooks. I'm on the GM and will restore to the public firmware soon, I want to read my Winnie-The-Pooh gosh darn it! Steve promised me the book, so I'm gonna' read it

    *Note: The updated RedSn0w does not recognize the GM firmwares anymore.

    Derp. That's news to me then. I assumed it had an expiration date simply because it is a prerelease firmware for the devs to use and test. Also because all the beta firmwares expire, so I naturally carried that over.

    I guess I may be wrong.
