    Why isn't anyone talking about this???? There's a new installer update out there right now for firmwares 2.x that'll mess up your ipod, causing you to have to restore it. Has this happened to anyone else out there? Happened to me twice.

    Why? Because NO ONE USES INSTALLER.

    Um... this is old news - pretty much ANY Installer 4 'update' will SWOD an iPod.

    That's why nobody uses Installer 4 for firmware 2.x - you can't trust it. Well, beyond the ugly interface, the whole 'updates to Installer or sources will kill iPods' issue is a big one. Only complete morons would use Installer 4, these days.

    DONT INSTALL IF YOU LIEK YOUR APPS AND IPOD

    I accepted the update being the idiot i am, or maybe it was my fault.

    but i got SWOD from it, plugged ipod into pc and it came out of SWOD all apps crashed so i deleted/reinstalled an app and then that app worked yay, but none of others did (i had 22 games i think and i had gotten so far on them

    ) then i thought maybe a restart shoudl fix it. I was sad when i turned on ipod to find all apps were gone D:

    I don't know why i updated it.. i have never used the installer app on 2.0 + i just saw the app sitting there alone on a separate homepage and felt.. aww that app needs to be checked for updates... and i suffered cause of my guilt!
