    I've heard reports that people with FW 2.X.X iPod Touches can update to 3.1.3 for free, can anyone confirm this?

    Oh, is it the thing where you go into DFU mode and it starts downloading?

    I think you can still legitimately get the 3.X firmware for free. Just ask your friend to restore/update their device, and when they download the firmware and do a restore/update. Plug your iPod/iPhone in and press update on their computer, and there you go you get free 3.x firmware free.

    I accidently did that once and now know it works great.
    (I don't think this is against rules mods, delete post if im wrong) You make a backup and DFU your iPod and it starts downloading for free. through apple, so its a legitimate source.
