Updating ipod without itunes akatsuki dating game flash deviantart
We will cover both methods of obtaining i OS software without using i Tunes to download it, we’ll start with the easiest method of using the device itself to get the i OS update. Thanks to OTA (standing for Over The Air) updates, you can also download updates to i OS directly on an i Phone, i Pad, or i Pod touch without even using i Tunes.
There is a caveat here though, and that is the device must be running system software later than version i OS 5.0, so older hardware may be left out.
If you’re looking for something that allows you to manage i Pod content easier, today we look at some free and commercial alternatives.
There are actually two ways to do this, the first is using the i OS device itself but there are caveats and limitations with that, and then there is the traditional method of downloading the update files directly from Apple without i Tunes, which is particularly helpful for those who rely on download managers or who are just encountering trouble with i Tunes automatic updates.
The two components you need are the i Pod Manager and Nero AAC Codec.

Another good alternative is either the free Standard version of Media Monkey or the Gold version which requires a license.
It allows you to manage your i Pod out of the box without any additional addons and will play a large number of music formats including FLAC, MP3, APE, AAC, and more.
During setup make sure to import your i Tunes library.
