    Mine is a 8GB 2G MC model. After using umbrella and modifying the host file to set up local server to host shsh blobs (because i have my shsh file in computer, not on saurik's server), i put it in DFU mode (and im sure it is because the screen is black) and tried Shift + Restore and point to the 3.1.2 firmware. after a while, the screen turned white and after a while, the apple appeared with a bar below it showing the restoring process. that's when i got the error 28. i tried many times but still have same error.
    pls dont tell me that it's a hardware problem 'cause i tried to use the default itunes restore and it got restored to ios 4.0 smoothly.

    You know why that is? Because 3.1.2 has never been on your device or whatever you're downgrading to.

    yea maybe that is the reason, my itouch was preloaded 3.1.3 when i bought it =.=
    guess im stuck with 4.0 'til a jailbreak tool for 4.0 MC comes out.
    thank you for the information tho

    Another thing to note is that the 8gb (MB and MC model) do NOT need shsh to downgrade.

    i still have error 3194 when downgrade to 3.1.3 though because apple aint signing for it anymore
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    so is there anyway that i can go back to 3.1.3 (not 3.1.2) and not get the error?
