    just upgrade straight to 3.1.2 with itunes. plug in your iPod, itunes opens, in the iPod column under devices, on the summary tab. click on update. it will update to the latest f/w.

    yeah but are you forgetting something guys.....

    since he is jail broken he should restore to fw 3.1 not just "update" that would cause a lot of issues

    remember shift + restore and then browse to iPod2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw (which is the one i am guessing you want to upgrade to)

    btw if you are on a mac you can just make custom firmware 3.1.2 with the pwnage tool

    and the just restore with that custom firmware

    if you are o windows you can shift + restore and then browse to iPod2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw

    and then jailbreak with blackra1n

    Please hit thanks if i help ya (ha ha ha)
