    Okay, so my mom has an iphone and it has 3.0 firmware on it. I have an ipod touch 2nd gen 16gigs, 2.2.1 firmware on it.

    I was wondering, since we use the same account and everything, can I get 3.0 firmware on my ipod touch for free? When I was about to try, it told me it was 10 dollars....

    The reason I want to do this is because than I can jailbreak my ipod touch again. It was jailbroken before, with redsn0w, but now I cant do that again unles i have 3.0.....

    Thanks

    P.S.- If anyone knows any links to redsn0w which can jailbreak ipod 2.2.1 and is not teathered- PLEASE SEND IT TO ME! I tried searching but I could only find teathered ones and it was REALLY anoying....

    Quickfreedom and Quickpwn can both do untethered jailbreaks of iPod Touch 2.2.1.

    And I'm pretty sure iTunes can recognize whether the device plugged into your computer is an iPod or an iPhone and won't let you download iPhone firmware for an iPod and vice versa...

    No (legally at least). the iPhone and iPod use different firmwares, so you would still have to buy the update

    I thought those only worked with the first generation?

    dude don't bother buying the 3.0 update. just search google for it and there is a whole site that gives free firmware. just download and update.

    i cant post the links- already been banned once lol.

    OKay, I tried using QuickFreedom, it worked- but I think i screwed it up. So I tried restoring my ipod so that I could try again, and it said that my ipod would be automatically updated to 3.0.

    do I still have to pay for it if apple is making me get it? Or is it free?

    If it is free- than that would be AWESOME

    Thanks for all the help though

    [EDIT] Okay- quickfreedom doesnt work... Every time I try to use it, it tries to install 3d canvas (?!?!) and than it says it cant install 3d canvas.... Also, it can't create firmware for some reason... Also, my ipod wasnt updated, it is still 2.2.1

    any help would be GREATLY appreciated
