3.0 update on two devices??? Yeah I searched.

Hey guys,

Hate to just make a whole new thread for this, but searching for 3.0, firmware, update, software, etc, is a futile effort as I found out. This also is probably a stupid question, but here goes...If I upgrade to 3.0 will it cover all the devices on my account?? My girlfriend and I both have ipod touch's and want to upgrade so we can play more p2p games. Flight control comes to mind. Anyway any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Oh, and sorry if this is the wrong section...

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

You mean like... If you bought a game from 2.x firmware, and wanted to upgrade to 3.0, could you still keep that game? Yes you can, but if you mean that if you and your girlfriend share the same account, could it go on both of your devices? No it can't on the new iTunes upgrade. You have to pay for each one if you want it on two devices or more.

Hi le'deuche,

I have my 1st gen ipod and my son's 2nd gen ipod on the same computer and each has to be upgraded separately. The upgrade can only be done when the device is syncing, so I can't see how you could get around this... hope this helps!

Thanks guys! So I have to pay $20??! The shadow guy, said that after 3.0 all games have to be bought seperately, is this true??? So after I upgrade, My girl and I won't be able to share applications?? So I would hypothetically have to pay $22 to play online flight control with my girl??

Well, I upgraded for free, following instructions from a site. It worked superfine for me. So, if you want, you can PM me and I'll give you a link to the site.

I'm fairly certain that you are only charged once on your account. I upgraded to 3.0 on two 2G iPods and one 1G iPod and it only shows up with one $10 charge on the account. And they were all downloaded on different computers.

That's what I thought should happen, reading the above posts scared me a little. You're sure it only charges once for an account right?
