Can't a girl get her upgrade?

Is the iPod touch update out in the UK yet? Because I can go to it on the itunes store, but it seems to be completely greyed the *((&! out!

Got used iTouch, reset it to factory settings, no worky. It says "not now" or "remind me later" and doesn't give me a buy option. How do I buy this? I want my Google Locate!

Not sure whether or not it is out in the UK, but some people stateside are having troubles with the update. The trials and tribulations (including an elaborate work-around) are described here.

The basic gist is that iTunes 7.6 needs to be installed first, but YMMV.

I installed it yesterday, after upgrading to iTunes 7.6. The process was very s l o w, I assume because Macworld is going on and everybody's downloading the upgrade right now. Maybe try when most of the U.S. is asleep?

The Haddock has it, and many thanks.

May I note that the upgrades are awesome, my other half is playing with google maps right now, and the install went very smoothly.

I do hope my money will be refunded, though!

I just updated my own Touch. Holy crap! The new programs are great!
