    Ok - I have limited monthly bandwidth thanks to mobile broadband internet. So, big downloads are an issue for me. To download 2.2.1 through iTunes is 250MB - which is a TON for me.

    Is there anywhere else that I can download the firmware from in a compressed format? What's the smallest download size I could get it at?

    It's really as small as it can get. It's several highly compressed disk images inside of a zip archive. You're not going to find it any smaller.

    The firmware from Apple comes compressed. Unfortunately, that would be your best bet.

    Also, I am closing this thread because distribution through other locations is a violation if Apple's IP. And we will not tolerate that here. So to avoid having to give out any infractions or bans, this thread is preemptively closed.
