    I was trying to update my ipod touch 3rd gen from 3.1.3 to 4.0 beta 2 but when I option clicked "update", and selected the ipsw file, it started extracting and then crashed. Everytime i tried, itunes would just crash...

    Does the iPod have to be in DFU mode to do the update?

    You have to be a dev and your iPod has to be good to update to betas, or it also has to be a "dev"

    First thing, usually you have to restore for it to start.

    Second, if your on Windows you can't update to betas

    Third, You must have a registered UDID with a dev and get it from the apple dev site

    Has anybody else noticed that the actual ipsw for Beta 2 is smaller than the ipsw for Beta 1? I wonder what they took out.
