    Hello,

    I never bothered upgrading my ipod touch from 2.2.1 to 3, and now that I actually need it I can't seem to! When i click on "Check for Update" in iTunes it just tells me that "This version of the iPod software (2.2.1) is the current version."

    Does anyone know whats wrong or how I can update?

    Thanks

    Update iTunes to the latest version and then update your iPod

    THANK YOU!!! I've been looking EVERYWHERE for this. Was going to try to jailbreak to get it, although I really didn't want to do that.

    I went to that link and downloaded purchased ios 3.1.1 but every time I try to download it, it says "There was a problem downloading iOS 3.1.1 software update for ipod touch. an unknown error occurred (8288). Please check that the connection to the network is active and try again." I've tried everything and nothing's working. HELP!

    You may receive more help by starting a new thread rather than posting on one that's over a year old.
