    Okay, I have an iPod touch 3g 8gb, and I downgraded it to 2g 3.1.3 firmware so that I could get rid of the 3.1.4 3g firmware. Well, now the untethered Spirit jailbreak is out, and it won't work on my iPod touch 3g because it thinks my iPod touch is an iPod touch 2g, and iTunes won't let me shift restore into 3.1.3 3g firmware, because it also think my iPod touch is not compatible. Not I'm in a really sticky situation.

    HELP!

    3.1.3 2G firmware should work. I believe 8gb 3G models only work on 2G firmwares.

    2G iPod touch
    The so called "3G" 8GB ipod touch it IS 2G, with a new bootrom, it has the exact same hardware as the 2nd gen ipod touch

    The only 3rd gen ipods are the 32 and 64 GB models which have upgraded cpu/gpu/ram

    The 8gb mc model (which you have) it is ONLY compatible with 2G firmware against popular believe. Try running spirit in win 95/98 compatibility mode

    That it is correct
