Upgrade your iTunes to 7.7! (here)

BACKUP YOUR IPOD TOUCH FIRST

YES YOU WILL LOSE SONGS, VIDEOS AND PHOTOS BUT YOU CAN RE-SYNC THAT AFTER YOU ARE DONE UPGRADING SO DON'T BE SCARED!

Once you are done downloading hook up your ipod touch 2.0 to your PC/MAC

Open Itunes 7.7 navigate to ipod touch on the left side

HOLD the SHIFT key and press upgrade (for windows users)

HOLD the OPTION key and press upgrade/restore (for MAC users)

Navigate to folder where your ipod touch 2.0 upgrade file is and open it.

Let iTunes upgrade your ipod touch ( could take up to 45 minutes! or more in some cases mine took only 15 minutes I had only 105 songs,610 photos)

THATS IT you are DONE.

Re-sync your ipod touch so you get all the stuff back (videos, photos, music)

Go to App store on your iTunes find Applications and download the ones you need.

You realize that this article is about stealing from Apple. To me there is not much difference between it and an article on the best ways to shoplift in an Apple Store without getting caught. People who will spend hundreds of dollars on an electronic device and then begrudge spending a mere $10 for a major functionality update frankly amaze me!
