    Dont understand what you mean by putting the firmware into Itunes without downloading it. Where do you plan on getting it otherwise?

    You have to download it somehow. Doesnt have to be from Itunes, but obviously has to be downloaded.

    You need to hold shift while click on update in iTunes or if your on a mac hold down option while while clicking on update. I think that is what he means.
