    Hi guy's & Girl's, I am a proud owner of an ipod touch EU version F/W 1.1.1, can someone tell me if i can download an American version of the 1.1.1 firmware. The reason i am asking is i would like to take off the EU volume restriction without jailbreaking my ipod. Is this possible or not. Thanks to anyone in advance.

    The EU volume restriction restricts the ipod volume by about 15% to 20% of what its maximum output should be.

    I dont actually want it for an increase in volume but this restriction affects the sound quality. To test try turning up your ipod above halfway with the EQ set on R&B or Dance and listen to the distortion, you dont get this bad quality with the volume restriction taken off as was the case with my previous ipod video 5th Gen. This is why since it's launch here in the UK Independent reviews have stated that the sound quality is poor.
