    Im writing this to you because I was playing around with my test iPod touch 2G, running 3.1 firmware.

    * NOTE: This is only for users that do not want to wait for the iPhone Dev to speak on this. I wouldnt test this on an iPhone, because of the baseband and such.

    Requirements:

    - 3.0 IPSW specific to your device
    - A device (iPod touch 1G & 2G tested) running 3.1 firmware
    - A computer (Mac or PC tested) with redsn0w 0.8

    ** INSTRUCTIONS: **

    Step One:
    Open redsn0w 0.8, and plug in your device

    Step Two:
    Press Browse, and locate the 3.0 IPSW firmware file.

    Step Three:
    Press Next, and select your options (Only install Cydia), continue pressing next until you get to the screen where it asks you to turn your device off, and press next.

    From here, you can put your iPod in DFU Mode before pressing next to speed up the process.

    Step Four:
    Press next again and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the jailbreaking process.
    * If it gets stuck on waiting for reboot, unplug & replug.

    IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU WAIT FOR THE iPHONE DEV TO SPEAK ON THIS

    * Although I'm using this on my iPod touch 2G and everything seems to be working as it did before (WinterBoard, FontSwap, Terminal, etc.)

    Nice find. I'd try it, but I don't really want to jailbreak anyway.

    I'll try this later, although I'm still on 3.0 now.

    I didnt update until I learned it could be "jailbroken".
    Let me know how it works for you, though.

    Ill recrate this in the 3.1 Firmware section because not a lot of people look in the news submissions, lol.

    Would this work for iPod Touch 3G that comes with preinstalled 3.1?
