    I found these files and they're restore files to downgrade to old firmware (from my 1G), i was wondering what would happen if i used these with my iPod Touch 2G.
    The reason I'm asking this is because I'm obviously not going to try it.
    NOTE: This is not a question, just wondering.

    It'd probably tell you unsupported hardware? The new processor can't see old firmware.

    I know, but it's worth a shot, just for fun.

    The only way this would work is on a 1G iPod Touch
