iPod Touch 1 v3.1.3. Mac OSX iPod was jailbroken and happy i had to restore for another reason so went to redo whole jailbreak used Spirit as soon as it...
02-04-2012, 01:52 PM #1iPod 1 3.1.3 j/b challege ow Cydia not supporting it?
iPod Touch 1
iPod was jailbroken and happy
i had to restore for another reason so went to redo whole jailbreak
as soon as it was done it told me Cydia no longer supported it and I must upgrade
did and the cydia crashed each time i opened it
found out i needed to hav a file on there named afcda22because the repositories were apparently corrupt
have tried everything but cant get it on to ipod
had it been, i could have used iphone explorer to get into root file system and delete depositories
long story short, tried everything to no avail
re tried to jailbreak 3x
FINALLY doh, i discover that CYDIA is no longer supporting 3.1.3 nor Apple I believe?
So now what to do?
I cant jailbreak it any more, is that right?
I need to jailbreak in order that i can use this for Kindle and free ..mobi ebooks i read--several newspapers i read daily, emails, text messaging + could other basic apps
WAS using it mainly for Angry Birds, Angry Birds in Rio, Angry Birds Seasons.
IF there is a way to keep using them on here, please let me know?
But know i could recently update Angry Birds seasons but main angry birds would no longer update so either way I know angry birds o might not be able to use anymore. If worse comes to worse can live with that as i have iPhone, Macs and HP Touchpad all with A. Birds as well ;-)
Sooooooooo what i need to know is this.........WHAT CAN I DO with this Touch? Anything?
Or is it now only good for the garbage?
IS there any way of re-jailbreaking it so that CYDIA will work on 3.1.3 and i wont needed to throw it out?
OR can I possibly downgrade somehow to 3.1.2. and just put on the apps I need which wont need upgrading and leave it at that? Although if so I dont have any saved SHSH files......

'k, I just looked at it
you gave me the link for 3.1.2? Was that correct? In order for me to go back one version, to 3.1.2 from 3.1.3, is that right?
you were suggesting I use this file, right?
If so, I am not yet sure how to use it, whether i do something with it through Tiny Umbrella, etc but about to go take a google search.
The only other option there I see is a 3.1.3 file and there seems to be no point in jailbreaking again on that version, right?
Just want to double check what you were suggesting........ thx
( just reading up on iclairified.com )
I watched a video on line and put my iTouch into DFU mode
The guy said to hit SHIFT and press Restore in iTunes, browse to my 3.1.2 file but i see many saying it didnt get theirs back to 3.1.2 but just restored it again to 3.1.3......and although i havent moved ahead, I seem to think its going to do the same.
Now I MIGHT be wrong but i seem to recall reading somewhere, that this hitting the Shift and Restore button is the critical part. Maybe on a mac its not Shift but Option......or something.........but i HAVE A feeling there is something else i need to hit and so far I am not sure what
If anyone knows, please let me know while i look around

No the link was not for a downgrade to 3.1.2
Pretty much what it does is gives you an iOS 5 firmware(modded) so pretty much I thought you'd find this useful and at least get some usability out of it since cydia no longer supports it. Which I think is weird...
Hopefully this will work out for you
Also the link I gave you was for either 3.1.3,3.1.2 you could choose which one. Since your on 3.1.3 then you should be good to go. If you want to downgrade to 3.1.2 then you new to have your shsh blobs saved.
Hope this helps and sorry for the confusion
02-04-2012, 06:49 PM #11
think its working
it didn't say anything about which key to hit for mac but as i said, i seemed to remember reading somewhere that it was a different one or i wold have ended up with 3.1.3 again
anyhow on a mac it IS option
it seems to be working now
restoring so far.........
ok so i went ahead and went back to 3.1.2 but was wondering when i did it IF this was going to work for me once on 3.1.2 anyhow.
I just got back to 3.1.2
My thinking was that I could at least jailbreak at 3.1.2 and use the apps I had used before?
(Sh**t I wish I knew what version this had been on and jailbroken to up to 2 days ago when I decided to redo it for had i realized it was not being supported anymore I would have left it alone)
Im not really following you.
So, i wasnt to go back to 3.1.2 but to stay with 3.1.3.........first of all, now that I AM at 3.1.2 s this going to make any difference?
Will I be able to jailbreak this unlike 3.1.3 being one version back, or not?
I am now at 3.1.2 (7D11)
And if not.....not sure then what you were suggesting i do?
Perhaps you can just lead me though your plan with some easy directions?
Sorry for the trouble but thanks for all of ur help

Just restore to stock 3.1.3/3.1.2 and jailbreak it with redsn0w 0.9.3. If you get a 1015 error kick out of recovery with redsn0w or ireb. The iPod 1g doesn't need shsh blobs to upgrade or downgrade. I'd stay away from whited00r (or whatever it's called) since the AppStore doesn't work on it.
Since your on 3.1.2 just use the redsn0w I mentioned to jailbreak it and you'll be good to go.
02-04-2012, 07:17 PM #13
Lol yah im kind of confused too. Follow a3gowners advice, sorry I couldn't help
02-04-2012, 08:09 PM #14
No, its time for it to go inn the garbage.
I was able to go back to 3.1.2, jailbroke it but Cydia is no longer supporting it either and you have to upgrade Cydia to get repositories etc, on to it and they wont let you.
It just crashes
Same problem I had last night, although at the time i didn't realize it was no longer supported.
I guess from here it can just be used for music only and sat in one of a couple iPod type decks I have for music.
Thanks for all of your help but apparently the iTouch 1 is now dead without support at all!
Dont know why they did that...they are so old its not as if they stop people from buying new ones but supporting them still allows old ones at least to be used....
i have iPhones, HP Touches, etc but this was just an old one we used for extra angry birds games ;-(

Cydia works on 3.1.2 and 3.1.3. It's the cydia that's included with spirit (or blackra1n) that's not supported anymore. I've never had a problem with cydia on 3.1.x. Just use redsn0w to jailbreak it and you'll be good.

You are right!!!
I was wrong.
Ahhhhh. Ok, it was Spirit that I was using last night.
Well when I first downloaded tis one it went thought some of the same windows as last night and I thought we were back to square one again but it finally did just update so it appears that i can get ********** on it which is the one app I would prefer for this as it then lets me put on a few apps i can use this for
So thank you VERY MUCH...........i really didnt think it was going to work but you saved the day!!!

Wow all that work so you can pirate apps. It's sad really, grow up and pay for them. It's people like this that cause things such as SOPA.
02-04-2012, 09:09 PM #18
/sigh, always someone who thinks they know what everyone is doing.
I have purchased a ton of apps.
But the 1 of the angry birds games were no longer updating on the ipod
i have purchased angry birds as well for my HP TP although there they are not all available
I have also purchased an SMS program, called BiteSMS and credits.
I have purchased other apps by the plenty for my iPhone.
Folder Enhancements and a bunch of other ones
But I cannot put my books on the iTouch unless it is jailbroken as some of them are a file ipa or whatever it is that only works with **********. I N S T A AL L O U S ( dot know why i cant spell that here )
Please refrain from making moral judgments against people you do not know!
Otherwise, thak you for your help
BTW, its mp3s and pirated movies that SOPA is after. Lets keep the facts straight!
