    Hi guys, my first post!
    I have an ipod touch 2g, which was previously jailbroken on firmware 3.0 and was working fine. However, when i found out that firmware 4.0 can be jailbroken, I connected the ipod and tried to update it to iOS 4.0. I simply connected the ipod to my pc, shift+restore 4.0 OS. It went through the update process where it shows the apple logo with the status bar showing the progress. Right when that finishes the ipod goes back into recovery mode. Same thing happens when i put it in dfu mode and recover it. I tried numerous things but it keeps ending up in recovery mode, right after the update finishes. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this problem?

    UPDATE

    After doing a shtload of more research, finally was able to drop my ipod back down to 3.0 OS. But i really want to be in iOS 4.0.
    Here is my current stats:
    ipod touch 2G
    version: 3.0 (7A341)
    model: MB531C

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Update to 4.1 then you can use redsn0w to jailbreak.

    updating or restoring both dont seem to do anything, when the firmware upgrades it automacally ends up in recovery mode loop

    i wish i could but i cannot update to that firmware

    jailbreaking with redsn0w is easy but u need to have the device in the firmware u want jailbroken

    You can, but it's BS, because Cydia is unstable.
    Just use the guide in my signature, and replace all "4.0.2" with "4.1"
