    Hey,
    This morning, my touch kept turning on, then off again, so i took it to the apple store, and they happily gave me a brand new one, with no questions asked. However, once i got home i noticed the firmware they have on it is 1.1.3, but as im sure you know theres 1.1.4 out now, so should i update? Also, the ipod they have given me has got the 'january software upgrade (mail etc..) so, if i pressed upgrade would i loose the software, and have to pay 12 pounds?

    Thanks if you can help

    could just jailbreak, and download the apps for free even if you lose them...

    The update stays on itunes, it reconginzes the ipod threw it's serial code, so yes, if you update you'll still have em
    and question, they just gave it to you right? they tried to fix it?

    No, I exchanged my iPod last sunday, from a 1.1.4. You will get the software upgrade if you update. I was in the same situation. Even if you JB and restore the iTunes server knows you have the update so you will not lose the Software update.

    nope, no receipt needed, and i took the box just incase, but he didn't look at it, or even know i had it, he got everything just from the serial number he said,

    pretty good service, tbh.

    i was using ibrickr, to boot from being in restore mode, and it broke it, I was originally going to the apple store to pick up my brothers mac, and it only broke this morning, how convenient lol.
