    anyone know of a way to extract a firmware from your iPod? Because I want to be able to try out 2.0 but be able to go back to my 1.1.4 firmware with all of my settings, sources, and apps saved into the firmware. I know you can make a custom firmware with the pwnage tool but is there a way to extract firmwares?

    I'm not sure what you mean?

    Do you just need the firmware, so 1.1.x
    If so, look here. Just download, then shift-click restore in iTunes.

    Although if you manage to come into 2.0, you just need to do a regular restore via iTunes and it'll bring you back to 1.1.4 since it is the latest firmware.

    I think they mean that they want to make an exact copy of the firmware on their ipod with all the apps, sources, settings ect still on there, so they can use 2.0 and then put the old firmware back on after with all the apps ect on it.

    That probably made it more complicated LOL.

    Well I don't actually know the answer.

    You can always back up the apps via SSH...

    If you're referring to backing up all the content you have on your iPod touch, and setting it back at a later time, you could backup using an application called iBackup.

    If you're referring to having the firmware file on your computer; such as Firmware 1.1.1, Firmware 1.1.2, Firmware 1.1.3 or Firmware 1.1.4, you can download any firmware file here.
