    i just bought an ipod touch and i was planning to jailbreak it
    so i read a tutorial which taught people to go into DFU mode
    and download iPod3,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw
    so i tried to open that file to restore but a msg pops out saying "the device isnt eligible for the requested build" i didnt know what to do so i just simply pressed restore, but the msg still pops out
    my ipod touch is mc008zp/a(i dont know what version that is) so what should i do now? can i still jailbreak it?
    thanks in advance

    You cannot go to that firmware, sorry you have to upgrade to 4.0.2

    iBricked is right, you cant downgrade to 3.1.3, unless your SHSH's are backed up. if you aren't already running 4.0.2, then you can jailbreak.

    You plug you ipod to your computer, go to itunes and press restore no shift+clicking, if you ipod is 8gb it is classified as ipod2,1
