    I can't seem to figure out what to do. I have a 2g 16gb mb ipod touch which was previously jailbroken. It had been slowing down, so I attempted to do a restore. I simply hit option restore and pointed to a 3.1.2 file, but it gave me an error.

    When I try to do the same thing in both dfu and recovery mode, it says "ipod touch device isn't eligible for the requested build" I've tried a bunch of different ipsw's and I'm 99% sure 1 of them was correct.

    Now my ipod defaults into recovery mode (tried irecovery)
    Any advice??

    i think that basically means that apple wont let you downgrade back that far

    I tried hitting restore and letting it put on 4.0 or whatever, but it gave me the same error. I also thought that was a problem only for MC ipod touch and 3g

    yup, either that, or I try to restore and it does a recovery loop, or I try to restore from a separate file
