    So I installed an app today, just a typical app, but when I resprung my iPod it wouldn't turn back on, just sat at the apple logo. This happened to be before when I accidentally deleted an important file but just restored it with the 2G firmware since it wouldn't accept the 3rd gen.
    But now I downloaded the 3rd gen firmware again to try once more it wouldn't let me, saying the firmware was "incompatible." It just has to be though, since my iPod is of the 3rd generation. It wouldn't really bother me to reinstall using the 2G but I want to be able to get the shsh backed up on cydia, which it wouldn't before when it had the 2G, soo yeahh.
    Any way to possibly just make it turn all the way back on or just get the 3rd gen firmware to install?

    The 8GB MC model uses 2G firmware. It's supposed to use it, don't make it use 3G firmware, it's not supposed to, and won't.

    What do you mean, you don't have to do anything special for it, I believe. Just follow the tutorials...

    I sure hope so, but I just read about the bootrom exploits found so I won't have to worry about never having a jailbreak again

    Or you just wouldn't update since we already have an untethered jailbreak. But with 4.0 it covers most reasons for jailbreak.

    Most, but not all.
