5.0.1. For 2 g ipod


Recommended Posts

I am really really sorry you guys, but I actually have a 2 g ipod touch ?And want to download 5.0.1. Onto iTunes. I have tried downloading all the firmware etc and then went into iTunesAnd held the shift key etc, but I keep getting a message saying my iPod is not compatible.I think I will have to go and buy a 3G iPod of eBay in the end. You see I would like to get 5.0.1. On my 2g and jailbreak from there. I know how to jailbreak and get the firmware etc but I just can't seem to get 5.0.1. On to iTunes.I will keep fingers crossed that someone may be able to advice. Cheers, wilfy009

With such a popular product, if it was at all possible to install ios 5.0.1 then there would be instructions on the internet of how to do so.

There are a few people talking about how they installed ios 5 on a 2nd gen iPod touch but crucially, none of them give clear details of how they did it.

Even if you could install 5.0.1 on a 2g iPod its quite possible that the hardware just wouldn't be up to the task of running it making the whole experience slow and unstable.

Thank you Simion for taking the time to post here, I really appreciate it.I have been trawling the net for a while now and love my iPod 2nd gen.I think an upgrade to 3rd gen will have to be given serious consideration now as, many appsNow require ipa files for watching tv etc etc . It would also be a big advantage to get messageThat I can use for messaging friends .thanks again and cheers,Wilfy

iTunes has never failed me. If an update is possible, iTunes will tell you when you plug it in that an update is available and do you want to download and install or just download and install later.

Perhaps you can hack it and get it on however that would be pretty risky and I would REALLY HIGHLY advise against it since the new code might not be compatible with the device (99% sure).

Sorry...

Thanks for your interest and reply about the above.I have tried to download the 5.0.1. Firmware onto iTunes without any luck.I tunes does not recognise the files, but I know what you mean about I tunes, it is a very good tool, and like yourself it has never really failed me until now.For the last 4 weeks I have been trying to buy a frozen I phone. 3G on eBay at a reasonable price , but have you seen the price some of them go for. Some of the iPhones are completely useless and still sell for about £40 -£60 at the least, not to worry though I will keep looking on eBay, for one I can try and mend myself, then I should be able to get most apps with ipa's installed onto it.Also it would be good to just have all my music on my iPod 2 gen and use the phone for other things eh.Thanks for all your help out there.CheeriestWilfy

Thanks for all your comments. I gave in with trying to get ios 5 and went and bought a Iphone 3GS instead. Now though guys, can anyone out there let me know if there are any websites That sell BLUE mirror protective fronts for the iphone 3GS . I know there are plenty of the normal mirror ones But I tried it and it is mince in the sun light. I have been through many websites but have had no joy. Oh I did come across one, but the minimum you could buy was 1000?? At a time.Any help about BLUE mirror protective screens for iphone 3 gs would be very very welcome' ps, I also came across Blue digitisers for the 3GS but no way am I trying to fit that , and they also cost about £36 eachThanks for reading and hope someone can enlighten me.Wilfy

      Does anyone have any advice about the problems I'm having with controlling the volume for my tv with my Apple TV 4 remote? I went to the Apple Store and according to them it is because my HDMI cable or HDMI input in my tv isn't good enough. But I bought a new HDMI 2.0 cable and my tv is just 2 years old and has HDMI-CEC. My remote is able to turn the tv on and off, and it is operating according to the ' learn control' test, but... it still doesn't work. Would love to use only 1 remote (I only use the Apple Tv for my tv).

      I have roughly 300 pictures on my iPod, and another few hundred on my iPhone. Some of these are screen shots of bank receipts, and some are just pictures that I've already backed up to my computer.
      How do I delete all of my photos/images at once? Like a bulk delete. I figure the process is the same on both the iPod, iPad, and iPhone... so someone has to know ow to do this.
      Also, I don't want to lose any of my other data, just the photos.

      I'm an old-school windows guy but I'm playing with a MAC at work (and typing on it now). Is there a simple way to take a screenshot kinda like the "PrintScreen" button on Windows? Trying to avoid buying Snagit on this MAC.
      Thanks

      Hello Techs, Thank you for the post on syncing the ipod touch with exchange email and gmail. I have the ipod touch gen 4and I was able to sync my gmail without any issue for quite some time.I synced my exchange email without any issues today for the first time. Mail was flowing from both entities no issues. When I left my work wi-fi and got home the ipod touch connected to my home wi-fi the exchanged mail stopped coming. I have my blackberry synced and it was receiving mail from the exchange with no issues.So I read the article and saw the note regarding the fact I can’t have two active syncs at once. So, I deleted the gmail and powered the ipod touch 4 gen down. I brought it back up and it is stuck at checking for mail.Any thoughts?Thanks, Jen
