    A friend wants me to jailbreak his iPod Touch (2nd gen; MB model) for him, but I ran into a small problem. He's running iOS 2.2! XD

    He wants it to be running iOS 4 (jailbroken), so that would mean that I would need to update it to 3.1.2, get the SHSH blobs, then upgrade to 4 and jailbreak it.

    Is there any way to upgrade to 3.1.2?

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    -Chris

    If the iPod has the old bootrom, which it probably does if the model begins with MB. He can just update to stock 4.0 and run redsn0w to jailbreak

    The above is right. Besides, 2G iPods don't have blobs.

    http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ Download the right firware, depending on which iPod touch he has. Go to iTunes, plug in his ipod, and click "Restore" while holding the shift button. Search for the file you just downloaded. Click OK and resync his ipod.

    Then go to blackra1n.com, download it. (it's the easiest and fastest jailbreak) Plug in the iPod to your computer, run blackra1n, click the only button in the window. It will jailbreak 3.1.2 without needing to restore. When it's done, go back to http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/ and get the right 4.0 software. Then download sn0wbreeze 1.7 (google it). The rest you can find in any sn0wbreeze tutorial. Hope I helped
