    I am trying to update to 3.0, I have a jailbroken 2.2.1 2G touch. iTunes will hang on "Preparing iPod for restore" and then say that it can't be completed.

    Does anybody know what I should do?

    Thanks in advance

    It's not recommended to update from a jailbroken device because when you update it,
    the previous jailbreak will still be there taking up memory..
    listed as other on iTunes.

    alright, I tried restoring and putting normal, unjailbroken 2.2.1 on my iPod and then upgrading to 3.0; but it had the same issue.
    Plus it's annoying me because when I click the update button it puts the "Connect to iTunes" screen on my iPod, and I can't remove it without spending an hour restoring, reinstalling, & re syncing my ipod.

    I think your lucky that you cant upgrade because the 3.0 firmware changes things on you ipod. I have a jailbroken 3.0 ipod touch 2g and i cant install winterboard because my ipod will get stuck in the boot screen and I will have to restore it. I have done this and rejailbroken my ipod about 8 times. Trust me, it is better just to stick with the 2.2.1 jailbreak than to use the 3.0 jailbreak.
    Hope this helps

    i hate to reopen this old thread, but did you ever fix yours? I'm trying to update to 3.2.1, but I can't get it to update either, same exact problem.
