    I have a jailbroken iPod Touch 2G running 2.2.1 and I'd like to restore back to un-jailbroken 2.2.1 and then upgrade to 3.0.

    Which method of restoration is best? DFU or just clicking resotre in iTunes?

    Thanks, Alex

    Actually. Just shift+right click and hit restore.

    If that fails, go into DFU, then shift+right click restore.

    well thats only if you have the firmware downloaded on your computer but if you just bought it from itunes you can just click restore and will restore to the new 3.0 and un jailbreak your ipod

    My friend, if you bought it from iTunes, you still download it your computer. It's saved on the Application Data folder under your username.

    Going from Jailbroken 2.2.1 to 3.0 is fine. There are no problems with it. It worked fine for me.

    Doesn't work for me. It put my ipod touch into a boot loop.
    downgrade to 2.1.1 using shift-restore, then upgrade
    so then you have a clean firmware, because if you update from JB to 3.0 you leave all the jb files on it and it screws with it.

    I agree that a clean install is always best when upgrading firmwares. You never know what could happen and you'll end up with 1GB of useless files anyway.

    DFU then Shift Restore.
    It's clean and safe.
