    I recently bought a ipod off a kid at school and he had 2.1 firmware on it, so I got the 3.0 firmware and shift+click and upgraded it, then I made the mistake of hitting upgrade and it automatically upgrade it to 3.1.2, now I can't jailbreak it. So I went and hit shift+click on restore and it came up with an error which brought me to a page that said you need to restore with the newest firmware. So I tried it with the update button with shift+click, still same error. How do I downgrade it without the error?

    I believe you should be using the restore option. This restores the unit to original settings. If you hit upgrade, then there are remnants from the previous version that remains in your system. For blackra1n to work, use restore...shift key - hit restore, and locate your ipsw file for 3.1.2. Once restore is complete, then your ipod is ready for blackra1n.

    have cydia on my ipod do that means my ipod is jailbroken?

    hello guys so i have been trying for hours and hours to jailbreak my ipod touch 3.1.1 actually trying to downgrade it ended up just

    not moving from restore mode and i had no other choice other than to update

    it so i did now i have 3.1.2 and of course i lost all my apps and im so mad right now!!!

    and i have tried all kinds of other things such as youtube nothing until i came across this forum and i did what nbachelder and now i got cydia on my ipod

    touch 2g does that means that my ipod is jail-broken? (if so its kind of hard to believe it was this easy bc i have been trying for so long!

    (oh and if its jail-Broken im so happy so i can forget abt those apps..if not then im even more mad)
