    Actually, the credit for finding this one goes to Zibri. I'm NOT a Zibri/ZiPhone supporter (actually I like the dev team much better) but that's a cool find:
    That link will give you a plist file with ipsw download links for ALL iPod and iPhone families, but including a special link...

    Direct 2.0.1 download link (feel free to delete it, mods, but it's from an Apple server, so I don't think this is an illegal link), I couldn't find the original 2.0 link in there, so wait for 2.0.1 to get pwned

    Or if your on 2.0 (free) simply plug your ipod into your computer your will then get a pop up saying there is a new firmware would you like to download+install or download only click download only and there you have it for free

    , but the DevTeam doesn't appear to have problems with it, they're working on it.
    The original 2.0 link has been removed from the plist file, and I didn't get my 2.0 using that method. I was LUCKY, and iTunes just popped up and asked me to download 2.0 for free.

    BTW: I'm going offline now, so don't expect any answer from me now.

    before you ask, the link is denied because it's a dereferer link.

    if you have Ipod with FW 2.0 you can get the software for free. You must sync your Ipod and then you could press the Update Button. Now you can select only download... no install.

    Then download starts and you have the new version on your PC...

    OR, just click "Restore" and you'll download it for free.

    Yes it does. I just did it. Basically, if you have FW 2.0 on your iPod, you can upgrade to 2.0.1 for free. It doesn't matter if you got 2.0 for free or not, it's just that you have 2.0.
