    Next issue...

    Just plugged in my iPod touch and iTunes 8.1 recognizes it as iPhone? So all the texts normally with iPod now read "iPhone sync complete", "A new version of the iPhone software is available (version 2.2.1)"...

    Anyone else with that problem or do I have to go back to iTunes 8.0?

    Edit: Syncing though works, but I'm definitly not going to update the firmware if it recognizes the device incorrectly...

    Try and let it download the software. Then go to the iPod Software Updates folder and see if it downloaded the iphone software.

    It's just a bug. I don't think it interferes with anything.
