Updating iPod / iPad / iPhone open file open dialog, doesn't auto-update

If, when you click 'check for update' iTunes opens a dialog where you can select a new firmware, its due to iTunes auto check for update being turned off.

From the command line:

    defaults write com.apple.iTunes disableCheckForUpdates -bool NO
