    In iTunes preferences you can uncheck "Check for update automatically upon connection".

    Don't use iTunes, instead use Songbird

    Wow this is a really stupid topic. I mean there is a little window that asks you if you want to update the software.

    iTunes asks you if you want to update. It does not force you to update as soon as you plug in your iPod. Simply click "no" when it asks you if you want to update. The new firmware has to download to iTunes first so even if you accidentally click "yes" you can just stop the download.

    Does Songbird work with the iPod Touch?

    Sorry for being off topic.



    Apple wont force updates, otherwise there would be a big backlash I think.
