iPod Touch firmware update fixes LCD issues

While many considered the LCD issues plaguing some iPod Touch units a hardware issue, Apple just released a firmware update for the device that appears to fix the problem.

That's the issue many Touch owners are dealing with at the MacRumors forums right now, it APPEARS to fix the problem.

Some forum members speculate that the update, which is a huge 150 MB, alters the contrast and brightness settings of the LCD screen. Others simply believe that the incorrect application of the LCD coating theory was just plain wrong, but that raises the question: Why did Apple admit to shipping faulty units if it could've asked users to wait for an update to fix the issue?

No one can answer that question, but one thing's certain: the update significantly fixes, at least to a degree, the LCD issue.
