How can I download and install the new version of iOS (iOS 5) on my iPod using my Ubuntu system? Do I have to give up and just find a Mac OS / Windows machine?
- iPod touch 4th-gen
- Ubuntu 11.04
I'm not sure if it is possible to execute an upgrade on a Linux machine, but you can always create an instance Windows 7/xp/whatever on say VirtualBox and upgrade from there.
Yeah this will be the last time any iOS operating system will require a connection to update. After you've upgrade to iOS 5 you won't ever have to do it again. Sadly, I'm afraid you are just going to have to bite the bullet and virtualize a Windows machine or borrow a Mac.
