    I have an iPod Touch 2G. I downloaded the 2.2 firmware for the 2G from here:
    http://www.installerapps.com/jailbreak/
    I also tried from here:
    http://www.quickpwn.com/2008/11/firmware-22-download-links.html

    I put my iPod into GFU mode while in iTunes. I clicked Shift+Restore and browsed for the .ipsw files. I tried a couple of times with each one I downloaded. Both came up with this error after extracting the files:

    The iPod "iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1).

    A regular restore and update still works but I don't want 2.2.1. It doesn't work right for me when I try to jailbreak it with QuickPwn.

    What should I do?

    Just keep trying to restore and try rebooting your computer
    I might be wrong but Im pretty sure the 2G jailbreak is only compatible with 2.2.1
    and don't post stuff about getting firmware files from websites you can reported and banned

    Rebooting and continuously trying to restore to 2.2 isn't working.
    I know that it's possible to jailbreak the @G to 2.2 because I've done it before. The problem is, my app store apps and the app store stopped working one day. I decided to restore my iPod Touch after that to see if everything would work afterwards. I restored and updated to 2.2.1 and now I can't jailbreak properly so I'm trying to downgrade my 2.2.1 to 2.2 so that I can jailbreak it again.

    What is the file name for the IPSW you are using?

    You ISPW file must be: 'iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ispw'

    I had the same problem. Try restoring with the 2.1.1 ipsw file.
