    It probably does it by reading the plists to figure out what it is... The iPod 4G is most similar to the 3G... iTunes 9 has no idea what an iPod Touch 4G is...

    Not a good idea, but suit yourself... My guess is that it's going to fail...

    I am too. This could be interesting if it works. If we could edit iTunes to install different FW who knows what could happen.
