Reverting to former iPod software updaters

Q: I recently upgraded my iPod to the latest iPod Software Updater (2006-06-28), but I’m beginning to regret it: I’m getting bugs I haven’t seen before, and many of them are well-documented on the web. The problem is that I can’t find previous iPod Software Updaters anywhere online.

Do you have a good source for these?

A: Sure. A group of iPod modification enthusiasts at have compiled an archive of former iPod Software updaters at their iPod Updaters Archive webpage.

They maintain a far more comprehensive list of Windows updaters than Mac, however.

Be aware of two facts before you attempt retrograding your iPod’s software: First, you’ll only be able to “Restore” your iPod, wiping it entirely clean in the process.
