    I have been trying to download the latest firmware from iTunes since it first came out; must have tried 50 times.
    Each time I get a failure with an error message that it has 'timed out.'
    All other downloads are OK. How on earth can I upgrade?
    HELP!!

    Go to the site that has the whole file that you can download. Download and save. Then go back to iTunes, press shift and click restore, and it will allow you to point to your downloaded firmware.

    If you are using a 2G touch, make sure you get 2.2(5G77a) - it has to have the a on it, the other is for the 1G touch.

    If you are uprading from a 1.x firmware directly to 2.2, you will have an issue, since you will need to pay for 2.0 update because Steve Jobs is a greedy bastard who treats iPod touch users like second class citizens to iPhone users -

    sorry, a little off topic there.

    if you bought it it isn't illegal, and it seems that he bought it and is having issues.

    That was fine, but now I've lost everything as iTunes failed (again) to complete the operation. My iPod Touch is now wiped clean!
