    So i updated to 3.0 i really like it but i need the 5 by 5 icons lol.
    i have both the 2.x and 3.0 firmware.
    What do i need to downgrade?
    And when im back to 2.x should i use quickfreedom or redsnow?
    Thanks

    Put your touch into DFU mode and restore to the firmware in iTunes

    I suggest redsn0w.

    yeah, select 2.2.1 (or which ever firmware you choose) after you shift click + restore, and it should reinstall the firmware

    redsn0w is just my opinion but it'll go a lot quicker and it won't have to completely install a new firmware
