    Okay, I haven't seen this anywhere, but I was wondering if it was possible (without jailbreaking) to install the 3.1.2 ipsw for a 3rd Gen iPod touch onto a 2nd gen iPod. If it is possible, are there any side effects?

    No.

    iPod2,1 can not run iPod3,1 software.

    For Accessibility and Voice Control.

    (Though only parts of those features would work)

    The invert feature of the 3G is a direct feature of its updated graphics card.

    Also, for most of the accesibility features, the 2G's graphics card couldn't do it.

    So no, it basically is impossible.

    It's possible except for most of the Accessibility and all of the Voice Control wouldn't work.
