    Yesterday, I restored my iPod Touch to 3.1.2 with no problems. But today every time I try to restore I keep on getting an error that says "This iPod Touch could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build."

    Maybe Apple is blocking restoring to older builds so people can't jailbreak?

    maybe your restoring to the wrong ipsw. make sure it is for the correct generation device. if you're downgrading, do a DFU restore.

    You can't restore back to previous ipsw when you go to 3.1.2

    Also apple can't stop you from restoring. Just from downgrading

    Well I guess they can now. Is there any way to restore without iTunes contacting the update server?

    Yep, I'm having the exact same problem. I'm assuming there isn't a workaround for this yet?
