    So When 3.0 came out, it was supposed to cost me 10$ to upgrade from 2.2.1, so I said eff that. Now that 4.0 is out, it isn't costing me anything to upgrade, but the problem is I can't upgrade anyways. When the file starts downloading, like about half way, it says that it lost the network connection. This happens every single time.

    Happened to me as well. I had to download it from a website. There is a site that provides the firmware legally, I just can't remember the URL. I'll try and find it.

    And from there you did what exactly? iTunes just recognized it?

    Once I downloaded it I plugged in my iPod, backed everything up, and hit shift+ click restore. Then you browse for the firmware file and select it, then iTunes restore the iPod.
