    Default Ipod touch 8GB downgrade need help!
    Yesterday my friend jus brought a new ipod touch 8GB..
    which comes with firmware 3.1.

    tried alot of way to downgrade but still fail keep getting error (1601)

    ways tried:
    downgrade itunes to 8.2
    go into DFU mode before connecting to itunes.
    directly use redsnow.

    none of the ways works..

    is there any way to downgrade? or have to wait for new jailbreak ways?

    Just be patient - JB for 3.1 is imminent (my bet)
    Check the Guides here regularly...

    Alternatively u can downgrade to 3.0 in the mean time.

    Pretty sure - 1601 means yr iTunes is screwed up - use REvo Unistaller to COMPLETLY remove it, DL here;
    Reinstall iTunes.
    Thereafter follow this to the letter:
    First u have to have itunes up and running. Download the FW 3.0 (No other version) from e.g. this site here and save it somewhere u can find it. Make sure your ipod touch is plugged into the computer. Once your ipod touch is recognized and u have the firmware downloaded and saved where u want it to be, u have to put it into DFU mode. To do so just hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds. your ipod should appear to shutoff. Now release the power button and keep holding the home button. After a while u should hear a sound like your ipod is being recognized. Now it should pop up in itunes. Hold shift and click restore, then locate the firmware u downloaded and hit open. U should be good to go. Your screen will turn white for a few seconds that means its working.
    Do hope that helps

    Default You Can Downgrade!
    If you still cannot downgrade. Then I have written a clear cut guide on how to do that without any errors.
    Just follow the link below.

    Just read that again, ry0suk1.
    I said that the guide which I have wriiten will not work for those, whos iPod touch came with firmware 3.1
    It will only work for those who have updated from 2.1.1/3.0 to 3.1
