    Yes but I did it the LONG way where you downgraded it to 1.1.4. If someone has the answer to downgrade to 2.x.x series, I would like to hear that too. Cause I haven't done that yet AND MY IPOD IS BEING SHIPPED TO APPLE FOR REPAIRS.

    If you got it through iTunes, you have it.

    What OS are you on?

    Why would you want to?
    For the community's sack, let 1.x die.

    Downgrading from 2.x to 1.x is difficult and requires downgrading iTunes.

    If you just bought your iPod and it doesn't have a bezel along the edges, and is just chrome... it's the iPod Touch 2G. Also, the 2G has a speaker in it which can actually play music, and has volume controls on the left side. The iPod Touch 2G comes with Firmware 2.1.1 and cannot be downgraded as it cannot use any of the older firmwares.

    If your iPod is older and doesn't have the volume control buttons, then it's a 1G. You can upgrade to Firmware 2.1 without charge if you have iTunes 8 and an iPod Touch which has Firmware 2.0 or higher already installed; by default, Apple's shipped only iPods with firmware 2.0 since they released it in July.
