    im guessing this is the legal way of getting 3.0 firmware for itouch. i found this glitch while i was playing with itunes 8.2 a bit because i was downloading iron man.

    1.) Put ur ipod in dfu mode
    1a.) to do this hold your power and hold button for 10 seconds. then release the power button but still holding the home button and then hold that button for 10 more seconds and then release.
    2.) press restore
    3.) WARNING pressing restore will make u lose every bit of jailbreak and apps.
    4.) wolah you have ur legit 3.0 firmware

    Hurry before apple fixes this glitch =) ( i had a ipod touch 2g doing thing glitch notify me if it works on 1g )

    Note- i tried this yesterday so its not my fault if it gets patched

    Basically, when you do a restore, it just restores it to the latest possible firmware.

    Since in DFU your Touch is basically just empty, it doesn't know if it's 2.2.1 or 3.0 that you had, so it just goes to 3.0 to prevent them getting complaints.

    For most iPod Touch users, they have no idea how to get it for free other ways, how to DFU, or jailbreak. Because most iPod Touch users are stupid.

    People previously on the GM, which he might have been, could get the 3.0 FW free any way they wanted, by updating or doing the restore trick.

    I didnt even have the GM, i was on 2.2.1 jailbroken. No DFU, i just plugged it in, hit update, accepted the terms, and it downloaded... Its not even in purchase history.... Lol
