i need to downgrade my ipod touch 3g down to 2.2.1. is there anyway i can do that?
No. 2.2.1 was never made for the 3rd gen iPod and you can't run a firmware that was never on your ipod. Example. Although the 3GS was released with 3.0 I can't run that because I opened mine out of the box with 3.1.2
is there anyway to physically put it on there then?
Short answer: no.
There is no long answer.
I doubt it works, but in theory it should work. You could use iReb from iH8Sn0w to flash to some firmware from another device, but you would lose all of ur 3G features. No Voice Control, ur processor would be downclocked to what a 2G or 1G has, and you would only be able to use half ur RAM.
99.9% chance this doesnt work, and it has more negative effects than positive. This is also dangerous, you may just screw up ur ipod.
nope...no way to run 2.2.1 on a 3G iPod touch, you'd just end up screwing your iPod.
You searched, right?
If you did, you would know the answer is no.
It is impossible, apple made it that way.
