    I restored from a jailbroken 3.1.3 3GS to 4.0.

    iTunes or the iPod shouldn't give you any trouble.

    I think it depends on which tool you used to jailbreak in the first place. You may save a lot of time and aggravation by restoring to factory 3.1.3 first. It doesn't take all that long compared to how long it could take to fix if you end up having problems.

    The best thing to do is just download iOS 4.0. Connect the phone and put it in DFU, then just click restore. You can jailbreak it with redsn0w 0.9.5b I and you are set
