    All these "get 2.0 for free" threads are stupid. Wanna know why? It's because there is nothing stopping anybody from getting this firmware in particular and just installing it on their iPods. Do you honestly think Apple would just put up the firmware (even if it's not showing in iTunes) and just add a tiny buy now page before you can begin downloading the firmware? I'm pretty sure the final 2.0 would have some type of DRM inside, on your account.

    good point but... No. iTunes says there's an update available wich means its official.

    Which is why,,,it's down right now right? Also considering i downloaded it straight from iTunes, there should be some type of prompt to pay, no? Since there wasn't, i doubt this is the final version.

    either way, iw on't update unless a new update has something that really will make me want to update to it. 347 prettu much has everything you need...but if the dev team doesnt do it on this firmware then ill switch.

    I think the servers are just overloaded and apple restricts the access to the firmware that way.

    Still I agree that its strange its free...

    simple... it's like a pubic beta: free until final. If they can fool some people into buying, then even better.

    exactly right, hence why they removed it from the server.
