    I'm not sure if you'll be able to restore to Firmware 2.0 on your own computer, but I do know that he will always have the Firmware 2.0 purchase on his computer, because of DRM (Digital Rights Management) so if you loose it at anytime you could always go back to his house and get Firmware 2.0 back again.

    yah just get your own iTunes account its alot more convenient so you dont need to go to a friends just to restore and its not youll like have to pay to get an account and if its just because you dont have a credit card or something you can just use a itunes gift card

    i guess you do need a credit card for an account but you can always use a gift card without an account just go sign in, create new account , then redeem gift card and that should work

    You can. Ipod Touch is so smart that if you ever pay an update for him, and restore it. Your applications and what you bougth will sync back to your ipod. Iwen if you jaibrake it. Even if you jaibrake it. I tried that. But if your update will not sync back to your ipod than you can alwayce co to your friends and restore it there. That will work.
