    I think apple released 1.1.5 bexause there was a method to get *legally* 2.0 for free:
    1. Upgrade to iTunes 7.7
    2. Delete 1.1.4 fw from computer
    3. Put into DFU
    4. Restore
    5. A message pops up saying: the latest fw is 2.0. Do you want do update?
    6. Press yes
    7. Enjoy.

    Now It pops up fw 1.1.5 rather than 2.0

    Another reason (apart from bugfixes) is that it would be compatible w/ iTunes 7.7.

    But the main reason is the first.

    I am wandering now, why release bug fixes for 1.1.4? It's extremely stable. But 2.0, on the other hand, freezes, reboots randomly etc.

    What do you think?

    You have a good point. It may be true.

    Then couldnt you just upgrade to 1.1.5, then do the same thing all over again?
