Updating ipod software without itunes
If an update is available, tapping on Download and Install will finish the process for you with no attachment to a computer and no i Tunes at all. This is by far the easiest way to get the i OS update installed onto a device and requires no computer at all, the whole thing is completed on the i Phone or i Pad.You can always download i OS IPSW files without i Tunes, and then update the software using i Tunes itself.If any i Tunes updates are available, click Install.Depending on the version of i Tunes that you have, there are different ways to update.Restoring your i Pod erases all of its data and settings and returns it to the state it was in when you first got it.
On a side note, if you attempted to download an i OS update from within i Tunes and it failed, you may want to trash the file it downloaded.Information about products not manufactured by Apple, or independent websites not controlled or tested by Apple, is provided without recommendation or endorsement.Apple assumes no responsibility with regard to the selection, performance, or use of third-party websites or products.

In some (not very common) cases, you may need to restore your i Pod to factory settings before you can update its software.
