    I've got an iTouch with 1.1.x firmware, do I absolutely have to go through iTunes to update to 3.x.x or is there any way to download and install the 3.x firmware manually? And once this is done, can I still jailbreak it?

    Thanks.

    Well there is nothing wrong with updating with iTunes. It's simple, quick and painless

    You will update to 3.1.3, which is jailbreakable with the new Spirit JB.

    The problem is that I do not have a credit card...

    I don't think we're allowed to talk about downloading the firmware manually, so sorry

    Ah ok, then sorry for asking. Either way not to worry, I found out with some research, had to erase all my stuff from the iTouch but it worked in the end anyways.

    Since we're at it though: why are we not allowed to talk about it?

    Hmm, actually, you might be able to download the firmware with an iTunes Gift Card, but I'm not sure...

    Oh, about that.

    Piracy issues I guess

    Ah I see, oh well.


    Either way no, it is not possible to update through gift card, because as a matter of fact I was planning on doing it like that since I'd received a few free ones, but even though the money (I'm guessing) would be taken from the gift card, apple still requires you to select a payment method (credit cards) before they allow you to buy your update.

    Let's just say that apple isn't exactly fighting piracy by making it harder to purchase their products...
