    i recently bought an iPod touch 3g MC which had 3.1.3 on it and i wanted to jailbreak but being on 3.1.3 i couldn't jailbreak it so i did a trick i found which said you could install 2g 3.1.2 firmware on a 3g iPod touch but now everything reads my iPod touch as a 2g iPod touch even after i tried restoring it i tried putting it in DFU mode and reinstalling the 3g firmware but that didn't get me anywhere

    FYI: 2G MC and 3G = same
    Besides, if it is a 8GB 3rd Gen you use 2G firmware files

    when did you do this? because there is a 3.1.3 jb which was released last week that works for 3.1.2, 3.1.3, and 3.2 (3g and ipad). and apple stopped signing 3.1.2 2g firmware for the 8gb. the 2g downgrade trick only works for 8gb.

    What does it mean 'they stopped signing 3.1.2 2g firmware'.
    I see it alot on the forums, but i don't know what that exactly means

    the multitasking won't work because the "3G" 8GB iPod touch didn't get the hardware upgrade.
    the only thing it got was a new bootrom
