    When you download the firmware for the redsn0w jailbreak, isn't that illegal? I've heard it's not, but aren't you getting illegally distributed firmware? Can someone explain this to me?

    it is.

    the update from a 1.x firmware to a 2,x one costs 10 dollars.

    Well, the firmware is a modified bit of Apple's code. And its being redistributed...

    I think its illegal, apparently this forum doesn't... I don't know what to say.

    Well...

    I actually already had 2.2.1, I just needed to get the 2.2.1 ipsw and the 2.1.1 firmware. Was that illegal?

    If you already purchased 2.0, then it is no problem.

    I've got another question. Why does this forum allow users to post links to both stock 2.x and custom 2.x firmware files? People used to get disciplined for simply asking for such links a few months ago. What's going on?

    Or if you already had it on your iPod 2G (which everyone did).
