Upgrading itouch to 2.0 from 1.1.4 without going through apple?

Banned
I have a itouch on v 1.1.4 (4A102) and it is a first gen model. I'm looking to upgrade it to 2.0 but my internet at home is down for a while and the internet in work is being blocked by my web filter on the apple store.

Is there anyway of upgrading to 2.0 without going through the itunes or apple.com?

That didn't work. I think it needed to connect to the apple server which my PC can't do so now I'm stuck with my formatted ipod without any version of the firmware. (Did back up songs though)

Any ideas how I can get it back without connecting to apple?

Anybody know?? ^^^

I'm getting bored in work without any music and can't face the gym later without some tunes to keep me going

uninstall your itunes and get teh latest version i think its 7.7 connectyou ipod to it and download the latest firmware if no luck then try 2.2 iPod touch firmware download in google and wh nyou go to the restore part in tunes HOLD the SHIFT button and press restore then in the window that opens look for your 2.2 firmware that you downloaded and you should be fine from there

You did it wrong then, it shouldn't need to connect, unless update 2.2 … You did it wrong then, it shouldn't need to connect, unless update 2.2 only works under iTunes 8 which has been out for a few months. Try it with itunes 8 installed.
