    Default Problems with upgrading from 3.1.2 to 3.1.3
    Hey everyone. I could really use a hand. I have an ipod touch 2g 8gb MB Model. It is jailbroke with blackra1n on firmware version 3.1.2. I would like to upgrade to 3.1.3, and then jailbreak again. I dont want to go to 4.x, due to sluggishness on the device. I am only looking to upgrade to 3.1.3 because I have ran into a few apps requireing 3.1.3 or newer firmware. I downloaded a copy for the 3.1.3 firmware and did a shift restore, it gets to the part about verifying with apple and gives me a error 3194. I cant seem to figure out what steps I am missing just to get a base 3.1.3 firmware on the device.

    It's weird cuz an MB model should be able to do this without SHSHs but error 3194 is the error people get if they don't have SHSHs. Have you tried a custom firmware instead (try Sn0wbreeze, I think it's version 1.5.2 or if you have a Mac use PwnageTool). But like ^ said, if you're just needing 3.1.3 for apps requirement then use the Cydia app to fake the phone to being on 3.1.3. There's no diff between 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 really.

    Does it matter what version of iTunes I have installed? I think it may be something up with my iTunes install. I tried to reinstall 3.1.2, and i get the same error. Can i just uninstall and reinstall the newest version? Then try.

    Default Bump
    I am still on 3.1.2 and saved my shsh blobs to cydia. but it only saved 4.0 and 4.1, and i dont understand why. Why would itunes care about shsh blobs on an ipod touch 2g MB Model. I would be happy to just restore back to factory 3.1.2 and rejailbreak from there.

    should i downgrade to an earlier version of itunes??

    Any other help out there????
