    I seriously want to Downgrade my iPod Touch I already Restored it back to 3.0 Official One I bought from iTunes and I am running that right now but with no Jailbreak. Anyways I am not so much of a Beginner I know how to put in DFU Mode and all that good stuff. Anyways Please Post a Comment on How OR Give me a Link to a Video in a Comment. Thanks.

    You have to downgrade iTunes to a version lower than 8.2 then DFU restore.

    Enter DFU and then Shift+Click (Option + Click on Macs) and select the 2.2.1 firmware bundle.

    EDIT: mikec1985 - are you sure about that?

    Alright Currently Downgrading iTunes and I know the 8.2 is required to connect 3.0 deviced so all I have to do is Put in in DFU Mode SHirt REstore and pick the 2.2.1 Hoping it works.

    Alright Everybody I figured out.

    1. Downgrade iTunes to 8.1

    2. Put iPod and DFU Mode and Restore to 2.2.1

    3. Jail Break iPod

    4. Life is Good...

    After you restore and jailbreak on 2.2.1,can you still use iTunes 8.2?
