    I'm just curious to know. When would be the right time that I should buy another iPod Touch so that the 2.0 Firmware is free once released? I was thinking that now it has been announced it does fix the problem relating to the "because it's not advertised we can't give it to you for free problem like with the app pack?"(<--??mite be wrong). Is there going to be something like the app pack where if you bought it after the 26th(or w/e) of December you could get the app pack for free once it was released?

    Cheers

    yes...but the app pack came out macworld 08 but those who bought their ipods after the 26th or something still could update for free. When is this the case for the 2.0 firmware?? am i making sense?? sorry if im unclear.

    yes, and those people stupid enough to waste their $20 on 4 stupid applications, got screwed out of their money when the community figured out how to hack them for free 2 weeks later...

    yeh...ok i get it...but thats not the question...u cant just hack something to get an ipod touch firmware 2 weeks after the release. This is different. It would have to be a soft upgrade because you would have to go through itunes to get the real firmware. Can't u see the problem??

    I should think that the best time to buy it would be the day after its release. I think the 2.0 firmware will already have the new features just waiting to be enabled by a DRM coded patch.

    I'd say wait until July.
    The app store might be poured over into installer. For free.

    The only problem I see with getting 2.0 preinstalled, is there is a good likelihood that you will need to downgrade to jailbreak (purely speculation on my part), if that's the case then you might as well get one now.
