    Hello all just for some confused people

    1. there are two versions one is

    iPod1,1_2.1_5F137_Restore.ipsw = Ipod touch 1st gen

    iPod2,1_2.1_5F138_Restore.ipsw = Ipod touch 2nd gen

    2. People are having trouble downloading 2.1 off ITunes, this is normal, there seems to be a problem with their official servers but I have found an apple mirror where you can download from, if you want it just PM me

    3. You can restore from a jailbroken Ipod touch

    4. I have just restored and took 7 minutes to do a restore just one word WOW, they have fixed alot of bugs, mostly lags, Im not sure if they fixed the appstore apps crashing problem (open app then 2 secs later closes) but I recommend you update

    5. YOU CAN NOT JAILBREAK 2.1, I have heard that the dev team managed to jailbreak the betas and I think they will probably release it in a couple of days

    6. I have heard a rumour that they have replaced the apple installation meaning once the dev team has made a jailbrek, you can not replace that file until someone cracks it

    7. this update has only bug fixes meaning no copy or paste and so on, there is the genius feature and thats it with a few changes to the exchange option

    That is all for now, got any questions just post and I will answer

    It would be awesome if you'd just post the mirrors in the thread, instead of being bombarded with PMs from people like me whose iTunes won't download it.
