    I have a ipod touch, 3G, 3.1.2 firmware, its jailbroken (tethered of course) but the thing is i uninstalled blackra1n BEFORE i installed cydia or anything so my ipod is completely empty without blackra1n. no matter how many times i rejailbreak it with blackra1n it wont come back on. so you might say just restore it. well i cant because itunes wont let me restore to anything but 3.1.3, so what am i to do?

    Look up total commander and t-pot plugin. then when you work that out you can manually put cydia on your touch.

    if your shsh was backed up previously you could sh*t click restore to 3.1.2 (there are guides for that on here, too

    EDIT: by the way, if this involves using like SSH or something to put cydia into the appropriate folders, it wont work because i need to install afc2add from cydia off my ipod first to be able to view those files on the computer. And this cant be done since i dont have cydia

    Can you not just run Redsn0w and select the "install Cydia" option?
    Try the "Already Pwned" box too.

    Good point i didn't even think of that, probably because I never got a chance to use redsn0w before my iPod broke and Apple gave me a damn 3.1.3 3G

    Blackra1n won't work because it sees that it is already jailbroken.

    No problem, glad it helped. Saved you a restore at least!
