I just received an 8 GB iPod Touch and updated it to iOS4. After reading some about iOS4 possibly being slower and having slightly worse battery life on the 2G iPods, I was wanting to try 3.1.3 (and probably jailbreak as well), but am having trouble downgrading. I have read that the 8GB version does not require shsh blobs to downgrade (which would be good since I did not save them before iOS4 Please Register or Log in to view images). I have tried using iTunes 9.2 or 9.1.1, putting the ipod into DFU mode, and selecting either iPod2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw or iPod2,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw. Neither file will restore. I did not modify the hosts file since I read the 8GB version does not need the blobs. 3.1.3 gives a error 3194, while 3.1.2 gives and error 28. Could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.
