    Anyways, I recently decided that my ipod touch was very out of date with 1.1.5 and a broken version at that since a restore busted the jailbroke part.

    Now, I obtained the 2.0 FW and upgraded my ipod touch to 2.0, got some nice apps and all, but some of the games I want require 2.1 so I need to upgrade.

    My problem is this, I have heard that itunes should update it to 2.1 for me when i click "Check for Update". But instead it says that 2.0 is the most current version. Whats the problem? I need 2.1

    hi, i think u should upgrade your itunes first to the latest version,
    version 8.0 i think or 8.1, im not sure but u should be up to the latest.
    then try to update again,

    if that doesnt work, this will sound weird .
    try to find the update file 2.1. and restore by file.
    this will be your last option.

    sorry for the term "last option", but for me, it is. but maybe other people can help u if they can provide other options.


    hope it helps.

    anyways, pls be active again.

    The reason jpga can't post it here is because he would be giving you a 2.1 link most likely, which is illegal because most people don't buy it, but it wouldn't be for you since you've bought 2.0
