    Hi,

    My brother and I both have iPod touches (I have a 1G, he has a 2G), would each of us have to pay for the 3.0 software upgrade, or would we just have to buy it once?

    Thanks

    even if they had seperate accounts, whoever updates 2nd could just use shift+click restore and locate the firmware that the brother paid for.

    So theoreticly... It doesn't make a differance.

    Actually, they couldn't because they have different generations.

    is that way "legit" to do it that way, he uses his own itunes account on his ipod, and I use mine...

    I'm probably going to be getting a new iPod touch with the BTS promo anyways. Am I guaranteed to get the 3.0 software if I place my order after the 17th?

    But also back to the original question, so my brother would have to restore from my firmware? Would he be able to use his iTunes account if he restored from my backup firmware?

    so basically you're saying we would have to buy it twice...

    and what about the answer to my other question. If I order a brand new 2G online after June 17th, am I 100% guaranteed to have 3.0 on it?

    Nope, you're not 100% guaranteed, but it's pretty likely if you order a few weeks after 3.0 come out. If you buy the 3.0 for your brother's 2G, then you can just restore with it if yours doesn't come with 3.0 already.
