    Hi there have an Ipodtouch 2G 32gb on firmware 3.1.2.
    Have recently installed Itunes on pc and have bought an app which requires a minimum firmware of 3.1.3 and will not install onto Ipodtouch.
    Is there anyway of just updating Ipodtouch to 3.1.3 instead of firmware 4.0 as Itunes is trying to do!
    Don't really want to update to 4.0 as have read people having problems with it!
    Many thanks

    UPDATE:

    Grabbed the files from [redacted]
    But Ipodtouch says the "ipod could not be updated because the firmware is not compatible"
    Any ideas where i am going wrong?
    Thanks

    Apple has stopped signing 3.1.3 firmwares. If you're jailbroken, check out Cydia and look for something called "Firmware 3.1.3 App" and install that. It will trick your device into thinking it's on 3.1.3 when it's actually on 3.1.2.

    EDIT: I advise you to take that link out of your post.. Pretty sure it violates rules.

    Note: That fix is hit or miss.

    For example, the air hockey app will work but updated versions of win admin or orblive wont unless you are actually on 3.1.3

    Based on that, I think you should backup your SHSH blobs then update to 4.0, and I think you're in the right spot to jailbreak 4.0. Check out some guides for help.
