Lucky you don't have an iPhone that needs updating! You can downgrade back to 3.0 by going into DFU mode and shift+click restore. You will need to re-download 3.0 though

    Well, I've had my iTouch jailbroken already, and today itunes asked me to update the ipod, so i did, and it restored it and it wasn't jailboken anymore.. So I tried jailbreaking it again, and i'm doing everything right.. but once its done, it gets stuck on the "downloading jailbreaking data" or something like that, and after like 10 mins it shows me the screen where i need to connect it to itunes and then i have to restore it again...
    What's wrong? =\

    So you updated to FW3.1 and tried to JB? Even though there is no JB available for 3.1 yet?
    Or am I missing something?

    ^Yup. That's what it sounds like.
    3.1 can't be jailbroken yet, what don't people get about that?

    I'm trying to downgrade my friends 1G ipod touch from 3.1 to 3.0 so that i could jailbreak it and its says the software is not compatible with the ipod. Am I doing something wrong? I hit the option key + restore and it opens up finder so i select the 3.0 ipsw for the touch and it wont let me. Ive already done several 2g ipods the same way that had 2.2.1 can i not downgrade on the 1g?

    Thanks

    Are you trying to use the same file as the 2G on your first gen?
    They're different files...

    iPod Touches aren't exactly my area of expertise..
    but I think the 2nd gen files start with iPod2,1 while the first gen files start with iPod1,2 or iPod1,1 (idk which..)

    Got it, Thanks for your help. I was able to jailbreak it already. But for some reason the firmware is not up on this site, I had to get it somewhere else. But it worked.

    Thanks Again

    The FW for the iPod Touch is paid for. Unless you have bought it you have downloaded warez which are not supported by this site and why the files are not hosted here or on any legitimate site.

    No you need to use Pwnage Tool, and it has to already be jailbroken. Pwnage Tool is Mac OS X only.

    Thats why they don't have iPod Touch 3.0! But how do you get it then? You can't get it from apple anymore. Even If you paid for it before, when you update it deletes old ones. Its because to jailbreak my friend's iPod I need to first downgrade it to 3.0 and then use redsn0w.. Where would I get 3.0?
