    An interesting bug I found in iTunes that let me download the ipod 2.0 firmware.
    I did the following.
    Screwed up my 1.1.4 ipod (optional).
    Put it in DFU mode.
    Hit restore (left-click), in Itunes.
    (I had no other firmware downloaded to the computer since the computer is less then a month old).
    So the option that came up in iTunes was "Update and Install", I clicked that.
    iTunes started downloaded the firmware.
    Now I have the 2.0 iPod Firmware on my computer.
    (Now I had to go find 1.1.4 firmware. 2.0 is useless so far, almost no apps for it)

    Now I think I didn't do anything illegal, but I'm not sure whether installing it is legal or not (pointless for me to try).

    Good luck.

    Yeah, you aren't the first person who has realized this glitch, although I think it was fixed in iTunes 7.7.1

    What I'm doing is perfectly legal by the forum rules, as far as I understand. I'm not sharing any links, but rather stating a glitch that I have found by accident.
