    Hi I have a quick question I have a 2.1 jailbroken iPod touch and I want to install a fresh 2.2 non jailbroken FW on it. would I simply click the update button in iTunes or should I restore it and if I have to restore how would I go about doing it, should i use, restore button in iTunes, put the iPod into restore mode then restore, or do i put it into DFU mode and restore it from there?

    P.S. I don't mind if i loose my data it's not really important to me, and because I have it backed up

    Personally, I would just update. Firmware updating isn't that hard and you need to update sometime anyways.
