    On MacOS, with iTunes 8, I told iTunes to download the iTouch 2.1 firmware ... and it did, prompted me to update, but I want to pwn said firmware.

    So I went to ~/Library/iTunes/iPod Software Updates/ ... but it's not in there. I found 2.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2 ... but 2.1 is nowhere to be found. It's downloaded, as every time I click on update it opens the correct ReadMe ... but it's not in that folder, not even hidden. Hell, I did an ls -R | grep iPod1,1 and only found the three firmwares I mentioned and the references in the PwnageTool package.

    So where the hell did iTunes hide my firmware?

    in windows

    iPod firmware is generally stored in the folder

    C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates.

    Substitute your Windows login name for USER_NAME.

    hope that helps

    o yer, just seen that you said OSx

    Problem solved, somehow.

    Downloaded QuickPwn and tried that instead of PwnageTool. iTunes fired up, said that new firmware was available, and downloaded it again, putting it in the folder I mentioned above. So all is well, even if I don't know how it happened.

    Ok, lets help this person and stop name calling.

    iTunes used to store the firmware files in the Macintosh HD/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates now it stores them in the Macintosh HD/Users/(your name) Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates.

    FYI... Search does not find these files. I haven't quite figured out how to correct this like previous versions of OSX. Any ideas?

    I bought 2.0 firmware from itunes (like an idiot) and when I run quickpwn and browse for firmware Its not there. Is it because i bought it and just have to download a free version
