    I am currently on a jailbroken 2.2 firmware ipod. Is there a way to downgrade to 2.1?

    Thanks.

    Go into DFU mode by holding the power button till it says to shut off, and shut if off. Afterwards, hold the power and home button for 10 seconds. Keep holding both after 10 seconds, but release the power button (but still holding the home button). After 10 seconds iTunes will pop up saying the device is in DFU mode. For Windows, hold shift+left click restore to choose the 2. firmware. On Mac, hold alt/option+left click and choose the 2.1 firmware. Afterwards, let it downgrade. Voila! You're in firmware 2.1.
