    Details:

    Was jailbreaked.
    NOt positive but I believe was accidently updated to 4.0 (PRobable cause of ipod crash)
    Started acting funny and just shut down.
    Itunes recognizes Ipod but keep getting errors:
    "build is not compatible"
    "error 28"
    "apple doesnt authroize restore"

    Tried using shift restore method with 3.1.2.and 3.1.3 firmware
    NO luck.

    PLease help!!!!

    You can only downgrade to 3.1.3 if your SHSH are backed up. What device do you have?

    You cannot go to 3.x without SHSH Saved. So you can only upgrade to 4.0 - Sorry mate

    Yep. Don't upgrade via "Update" button in iTunes, or you won't be able to jailbreak. Make sure you download the correct 4.0 FW for your Device

    Get the Firmware for your Device. If in Settings it states as an MC Model, get the 3G FW, if it states as MB, get the 2G FW
