    Why would you care?
    Well i downloaded the 4.1 firmware 1 week ago, now I want to install the firmware into my friends ipod touch 3g and well I have to download it again (I updated my ipod first then I updated itunes) can anybody show me where the firmware is? or can you rip the firmware from my ipod touch? thanks.
    (when I meant where the firmware is I meant where the firmware is when you download it from itunes)

    Search on google, it's actually illegal to post firmware downloads

    its saved on your itunes folder, go on windows and click the search function and write iPod2,1_4.0 ( the 2 is the generation number, i got 2nd gen & 4.0 is the firmware number.)

    i know its saved there until a new firmware gets released


    EDIT: C:\Documents and Settings\(Username here)\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates


    haha enjoy bro!

    No no, sorry I made a mistake but I meant where the firmware gets downloaded from itunes. Not where to download it.

    It downloads to that folder temporarily, then gets erased... Google it, you can't miss it

    It can only dissapear when a new iOS comes out. So i think its odd.

    If you wan o keep your firmware files, Felix Bruns might help you. Otherwise, iTunes just deletes it the next time it opens (I thinks)
