    Does this not work anymore? Im trying to update my ipod to 2.1 but the option click thing doesn't seem to be working. It keeps trying to download the FW from apples server and will not let me select my own?

    On Windows I have to hold shift down for 5ish seconds when clicking for it to let me browse for mine.

    I just downloaded and install the 2.1 FW and Quickpwd it. Then I tried the option click thing again and it still will not let me choose a FW! Its the same thing that pops up would you like to check for an update cancel or check. If I hit cancel nothing happens when I click check it asks if im sure I want to restore cancel or restore. It really crazy!

    The option button works on my keyboard I tested it. WHF is going on!

    Im going to try and reinstall iTunes tomorrow and see what happens.

    f*** me!!! I restored from a backup becouse I wanted to try aptbackup and didn't realize I had cydia hiden in a catogory! Along with a almost everything on my iPod. Now I only have safari music and video on my springboard!

    This just keeps getting worse!!! Now I'm afraid to update my phones.

    I kinda want to get this fixed before I try to update my phones. I need them jailbroken and unlocked. I could care less about the iPod. I just use it for testing and it's a good thing I tried it on the iPod first. If this happened to one of my phones I would be assed out.

    Am I the only one that has ever had this problem?
