Update iPod touch 3.1 genuine firmware for free

Apple has released its latest firmware for iPod & iPhone and is priced at $4.95 for poor iPod touch users and free of cost for iPhone users. I have always hated apple’s bias for iPhone, so here comes a post to update iPod touch to genuine 3.1 firmware for free. I have discovered the steps myself, and it works perfectly well!

  1. Update your iPod to a pirated copy of 3.0 software update as shown here.
  2. Once updated, connect your iPod to PC and open iTunes. There it will prompt that a new firmware update is available. If it doesn’t prompt, click on, “Check for Update”.
  3. Once prompted, update it to the latest version. Since you were having 3.0 as the last firmware, it won’t ask for any money. So, it will start downloading the new update and will eventually update your iPod with genuine 3.1 firmware for free.

And Mr. Jobs thought only he is smart (by charging iPod users for genuine firmware).

Cheers, comments invited.
