    Hi!

    I found this link in another forum: <redacted>[.....Sorry, but i dont want to post the full link......]...

    If I click on the link I can download the new software but is it illegal to download it?

    PS: I DON'T REPLY TO PMs LIKE "Hi, can i get the full link of 3.0 pls?"

    It is probably illegal, but I am not sure. PM a moderator about it.

    Isn't that a legitimate Apple site? It would appear that they just don't have the location secure enough!!!

    -DO NOT use the site to offer to send the firmware by private message, email, or any other means
    -DO NOT in any way discuss or encourage piracy.

    -DO report piracy and other unacceptable activity to the staff
    -DO make sure you understand that it is only the iPod touch versions of the firmware that this rule applies to

    It is secure, but I think you can only get that link through buying it first. Have you tried to download it from there?

    Is that the iPhone firmware or the iPod Touch firmware? If it is the iPhone one, then that isn't illegal.
