    I accidentally made my ipod think it was an iphone once, so if u hooked it up to the computer, wouldnt it recognize the ipod as an iPhone? Then, couldn't you get 2.0 for free?

    It would still be the wrong software even if it worked.

    or couldnt someone who bought 2.0 just upload it, then you could use it as a defualt firmware to restore to.

    It'll probably be like the january app pack. You get the bug fixes for free, and pay to activate the added functionality.
