    Hi Guys,
    My friend has a first gen touch, and he is on 2.2.1.
    How can he update to 3.1? because his itunes is telling him that 2.2.1 is the latest firmware.
    Thanks..

    He can do it by downloading the latest firmware and then holding the Shift key and choosing restore.

    Download the desired iPod firmware version here. Then go to iTunes and click on your iPod there. Hold the shift button and click on the "check for update" button, and then choose the ipsw file you downloaded. But BE SURE to download the right/compatible software version.

    Good luck.
