Apple has pushed the new iPod Touch Firmware 2.0 to iTunes. All iPod Touch users can upgrade to this latest firmware by paying a one-time fee of $9.25.

iPhone users, however, get to upgrade to firmware 2.0 absolutely free of cost. As I find this kind of unfair on part of Apple to charge only iPod Touch users, so I am going to help you upgrade iPod Touch to firmware 2.0 absolutely for free.

ipod20firm

Just follow the steps below and soon you will be having an updated iPod Touch 2.0 absolutely for free.

  1. Download iTunes from Here.
  2. Hold Shift and click Restore.
  3. Select iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw
  4. Enjoy!

The iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw firmware can be downloaded from any of the mirrors below. It is the complete stable and final iPod Touch Firmware 2.0 (5A347) and has been checked and tested.

Hi All

I installed and it did updated firmware and does provide 2.0 interface.

However somehow I am locked out of iTunes Store access from iPod (even the Itunes store button disappears).

Finally when I installed apps they were initially properly synced to iPod. However after a period of time, iTunes refuses to synch apps and the existing apps on iPod fail to start.

I think apple must be using iTunes to validate whether license for iPod firmware was purchased or not, and locks you out if it was not.

actually press the shift button the same time your press with your mouse the restore button on the summary tab of your ipod in the itunes window. then it’ll open a window and you search for the file you downloaded which might be desktop or documents most likely

Daruba July 13, 2008 at 8:55 am

Although I was willing to pay for the upgrade, I simply could not buy it because Apple don’t let some countries buy stuff using iTunes (like Aruba). My U$D visa seems to be worth nothing @ Apple.

Thank you so much for making this available! It works just great, and it’s a beautiful upgrade overall.

You have to connect your iPod Touch to your computer. A screen will then come up showing your iPod’s info. If it doesn’t, then look over on the right of the iTunes window, and under the devices section. There will be an option with your iPod’s name. Click it. A little of center will be the “restore” button in question.

You just have to restore the iPod and then just open the Ziphone folder and for the iPod is the second choice and it did work fine.

LG July 16, 2008 at 4:56 am

Thanks for the information, I greatly appreciate it!

For those of you having trouble, after you download the new iTunes and the ipsw file from one of the addresses given in the original post, plug in your iPod touch. When iTunes opens, the restore button is located on the main tab where you would sync the files from your library. You want to hold down the shift key when you click on the restore button and a window should open asking for the ipsw file. It’ll work and tell you that the iPod is being restored to its factory settings but then you’ll see all the new features afterwards on the iPod screen. The only bummer is that all your files have to be re-synced but that’s just a minor issue.

to all those who ever have this problem, it might be that you need to plug the ipod usb into the back of your computer. If you have a knock-off ipod cable and the first solution still doesnt work, then you may want to get a real ipod cable and retry. it worked for me. This is if you have error (2003)

well hi there… for the ppl asking if there was installer… well yes but there is pwnage involved first (look at the link above me…with the link to the dev team blog) BUT even if there is installer sadly there is NO apps ported to 2.0
this means that none of the apps found in installer and in cydia (alternative to installer) will be able to work in firmware 2.0 … so in bottom line jailbreaking 2.0 does nothing except get you ready for the future apps (hopefully)

16GB iPod Touch
1.1.4 Jailbroken

Installed this update and it worked perfectly, though lost all jailbroken apps including Installer.app and Cydia. I am able to download apps using iTunes and put them on the iPod. I am not in a wifi area so I haven’t been able to test them, but it looks good so far.

I’m pretty annoyed that it costs another $10 after already paying $20 before, and it also costs for most of the apps. But I guess we get the security of knowing Apple has checked all of these apps and if anything were to happen because of them Apple would warranty the iPod.

Apple = Evil! But there is something attractive in evil.
Damn them for making us want them more! -_^

Reply

teaspoon February 24, 2009 at 10:03 am

I had these two errors also, but thanks to Et2007c I was able to get past them and update successfully.

I had some long, tense moments when I thought I was stranded between versions, and I had to keep restarting the firmware download — took several tries and over 4 hours (*OMG* that “uploaded.to” mirror site is slow! Try searching for that restore file somewhere else, before using the ones linked on the page.)

But finally, after downloading the firmware twice, and reinstalling iTunes, I updated my iTouch from 1.1.4 to 2.0 — and then let iTunes update it to 2.2.1 — and the process went very smoothly.

After everything was working, I went ahead and did the jailbreak, which is fast and flawless. Now I have the best of both worlds!

Thank you for posting this. It worked perfectly. I was really mad when I found out that I had to pay $ to upgrade the OS when I bought the iTouch NEW!!! It’s almost like buying a new car, and when you get home, you find out your car has a carburetor and I need to pay $ to upgrade to fuel injection. And the iTouch is not cheaper than the iPhone, and they get a free upgrade. Anyways, thank you very very much!

Hey for the people that was having the problem with the ipod it was saying cannot sync with numbers. all you have to do is download Itunes again, and it will accept it. I use Mac so i’m not sure for microsoft.

Also Check under your Music File, click on itunes and search for anything that looks different and delete it

This for the person that purchased the upgrade. Once you purchase it you can put it on as many iPods as you want. The upgrade is attached to a user account NOT an iPod. BTW 2.2 is a great update as it fixes connection issues with WPA/2.

Hi Cole,

May be a stupid point.. but have you reconfigured your wireless access? The upgrade for some, does erase all configurations and you have to do it again.

Bugs December 9, 2008 at 3:14 am

Well wanted to thank you for uploading the FW. and thanks to all who have posted their comments. It did help me get thru from 1.1.5 to 2.2 (yes its 2.2 now). there was a scary moment where my iPod Touch just hung and refused to accept any of my commands. after a few nervous minutes it was back up and on to 2.0. I restarted and loaded up iTunes and opted for the upgrade to 2.2. iTunes quickly downloaded the package, but soon enough there was an error “13″ saying it has failed updates. But once again I restarted connected to iTunes and there is was 2.2. I confirmed this on the iPod Touch too.. It says 2.2. its been working fine for the last hr or so. I was able to sync all my songs and pics.

Thanks once again guys. this works like a charm..

Jake December 12, 2008 at 3:24 pm

Hey I am trying it and I cant figure out how to do it?

Reply

Bugs December 15, 2008 at 4:04 am

Hi Jake,

I’m quoting the steps mentioned by LG ( almost half a page above).

*********************************
For those of you having trouble, after you download the new iTunes and the ipsw file from one of the addresses given in the original post, plug in your iPod touch. When iTunes opens, the restore button is located on the main tab where you would sync the files from your library. You want to hold down the shift key when you click on the restore button and a window should open asking for the ipsw file. It’ll work and tell you that the iPod is being restored to its factory settings but then you’ll see all the new features afterwards on the iPod screen. The only bummer is that all your files have to be re-synced but that’s just a minor issue.
*************************************

Follow this and you should be fine,
Bugs.

Hey, this worked perfectly for me, I did exactly as the instructions above said, and it seems to have gone great. I even went on to update to version 2.2 and that went smoothly too. It automatically re-synched all the content I had put on the ipod, so I didn’t have to reload all my content, but I haven’t yet checked the WEP codes or other settings. Oh, and I cancelled the re-synch at the version 2.0 bootup, as it will be wiped out again immediately at the 2.2 update. No use in waiting that extra 30 minutes twice. It does take a pretty long time – I have about 8 gigs on my 16GB model and it took around 2 hours start to finish.

Thanks alot, not just for the cost savings, but for the spirit of helping others!

Cool

Gizelle February 5, 2009 at 9:27 pm

To those who are getting the Error 1403, please make sure that you’re downloading the whole 222.6 MB file. Sometimes, due to unknown glitch, you tend to download only part of the file thus giving you this error when you restore. I know ’cause it happened to me.

It took me a couple of hours to download (about 2 or 3 hours, I think) but it was worth the wait as I’m able to upgrade my iPod’s software from version 1.1.4 to 2.0. Then I proceeded to upgrade again to version 2.2.1 and this time, iTunes didn’t harass me to pay $9.95 anymore.

You just need a lot of patience on this one but it works. And by the way, you can do this trick even on iTunes 8.0. :)

Just to clear this out for everybody, It works on iTunes 8. Use HjSplit to join the parts if you downloaded them off Rapidshare.

And yes it works on Windows too.

Its okay for it to say processing… just wait after about 10-20 mins, it will say that it has been restored.

Simply make sure you choose the correct one. (1G, 2G) if you don’t you will get a firmware error

For those of you that dont know if you have 1G or 2G, the 2G has buttons on the side (volume) whereas the 1G doesn’t :)

i'm not able to upgrade for free my ipod with iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw

when i click to restore it search to ipod upgrade e does not offer me the choice to choose the upgrade but only the option to restore my 1.1 original settings.

Hey. Im thinking about doing this because I REALLY want to put some apps into my ipod. But, can someone tell me if this will mess up my Ipod touch in any way? Cause if there's even a 5% chance it might, I am not willing to take the risk.

Cheers.

Connect your ipod to itunes, click on the ipod in the left hand toolbar in itunes, go to summary. On the bottom, you should see a breakdown of your ipod's free space. Look up, and you will see 2 buttons. Update, and restore. Hold shift and click restore, then find the downloaded file and select it.

Voila.

 This is frustrating! Doing this, your telling me to select
“iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw” where is it  in my documents, like what do you mean. Mind elaborating you explanation.
