    To downgrade you need 4.0 SHSH file I think.

    Well downloading it the only option I guess. You can backup your ipod though the first time you remove it out of the box which will act as a original 4.1 firmware without any installed applications.

    Isn't the ipsw stored in like "documents and settings/user/apple/iTunes/" or somewhere? I just found it earlier..it was something like that anyway..

    That would happen when you have upgraded firmware using iTunes. But if you have connected it the first time, I don't think the ipsw file will be there on the PC.

    Click restore on iTunes, this will download the Ipsw but just make sure to disconnect the device as soon as it begins downloading.
