    Exclamation Ipsw

    I was fiddling around in the 4.2.1 IPSW for iTouch2,1 when I noticed the file "Manifest.plist" I opened it and was browsing through it when I noticed that there were several instances of the tag "<version>iPod2,1</version>" or something like that. My question is: Is it possible to download the newest [iOS 5] and change all instances of that version to iPod2,1? Would that allow iTunes to install it or would it brick my iPod?

    thats a second or third Gen iTouch? if its third yeah is possible, but iOS5 is BETA 1 stage so it doesent do like its supposed to...

    in short:
    for installing U need iTunes 10.5
    iOS5 beta1
    UUID developer account(or u can go to iosregistartion.com 5$ licence)

    last night i was try the iOS5 on a iPhone 4, and so many options arent working.... but its BETA right??
    my opinon it is to soon to be seen what iOS5 means to final user!

    back to your question... plausible but not 100% sure!

    That's what I was thinking. I have everything I need to "experiment." I'll do it later today and hopefully have post-able results from the results. My iTouch is a 2G (probably won't be able to handle it). One error I'm expecting is the "bundle load error". Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately, everything I said would go wrong did. It installed, however, bundle load errors, and lock-ups ran rampant. RESULT: FAIL

    So it's either Definatley not built for the ipod or some things have to be changed again for it to work.

    Will you be trying other method's?
