Thread: iPod Touch 2G update limit??

  1. #1
    Lightbulb iPod Touch 2G update limit??
    Just wondering... my iPod is stuck on fimware 4.2.1, and won't update further (its the 8GB). Could I manually "update" it by downloading a higher software (for example 4.3.3) and then using the "shift"+"restore" method (basically restoring it to a higher firmware than it is supposed to be)?

    I'm not willing to try it out until I'm sure this would work as I don't really want to risk all my jailbreak stuff...

    Thanks

    PS. THIS IS JUST A THOUGHT, AND I JUST WANT SOME OPINIONS ON WHETHER IT WILL WORK, OR IF IT IS A COMPLETELY STUPID IDEA.

    I doubt it, since the firmware has to be tailored to the specific device, and I highly doubt iTunes will let you use a firmware for a different generation and/or it will even work, due to differences between all of the models.
