    Ok general information:
    iPod touch Second Generation MC Model
    Current iOS: 3.1, jailbroken with tethered blackra1n
    Desired iOS: 4.0 or higher jailbreakable one
    Questions:
    Ok on Cydia I just hit 'make my life easier' and it says:SHSH: iOS 4.0, 4.1. Now does this mean I will only be able to back up to 4.0-1 if I restored to 4.0 now? And if I saved SHSH blobs for 3.1, does that mean I could revert back to 3.1 and then 3.1.3 if I wanted? And then save SHSH blobs for that too? Or what?

    The only reason I am asking is because I have only dealt with my iPod touch 2g MB and haven't been in the scene for a while, thanks.

    If I restored to 3.1, could I then upgrade to 3.1.3; since it would be upgrading and not downgrading?

    Doesn't matter, Apple stopped signing the firmware. So that's when shsh come into play.

    You can only save shsh for 4.0 and then no going back so my advice is stay where you are because 4.0 is a pain battery life also sux.

    If he has a pre-4.0 firmware shsh saved, he can go back.

    Ok so now I need to save SHSH for 3.1, then I can upgrade to 4.0. Now since cydia has 4.0 and 4.1 shsh saves, i can always go back to them? All I have to do is add the line to hosts file correct?
