How to download iPod iOS updates without an iTunes account.

If you need to update an old ipod but don’t have or want to subscribe to an itunes account we have a website for that. Follow the link below to download the firmware restore files you need. I have a very old g2 ipod touch and really wanted to update the browser more than anything but found i couldn’t as apple required me to sign up for an account to do this (which also requires a credit / debit card) … the link below solved all my problems.
