    .....
    since this is my first ipod i don't know much about its usage....

    I need to know few things before i start off using my ipod touch

    will connecting my ipod to itunes automatically update it to the latest firmware?.....

    how to save the 3.1.2 firmware for just in case?.....

    To be precise i just need to know what to do in order to keep the 3.1.2 firmware and avoid updating it(accidentally).....like is there anything i need to watch out for that might cause an automatic update...or any other sort of problem......

    It won't automatically update, rather it would ask you to do so
    The bad news here is, Apple has stop signing old firmwares, this means you cannot restore your older firmwares if you need to.
    But the good thing is, if you have a 3.1.2 Device, you can still have some chances that an unintentional upgrade could be reverted.

    Firmware can be downloaded from [removed]

    Yes, you can if you find don't want to keep on pressing 'Cancel' everytime your iTunes pops up on connected device.

    Just Tick 'Do not ask me again' and Cancel it. You absolutely are sure what would happen

    1)do i copy and save the firmware from the device itself...or is there something i need to do get my device firmware......

    [removed]
    2) you said i wont be able to restore to older firmwares...then how does downloading these firmwares help......

    3)does jailbreaking my device automatically store the ECID onto saurik's server...or do i need to do it manually......

    4)is there anything else i need to store other than the ECID?....

    Thats why the tutorial

    You need to back up your ECID SHSH yourself. The guide has the process. That way you would be able to downgrade later even if you unknowingly upgrade it.
    Read calmly and follow that process if you need to downgrade, its a excellent guide.

    Just download the 3.1.2 if needed, that too if you are on 3.1.3. Else be happy on 3.1.2

    Remove that link, it is breaking the rules.

    Rule 6 - The posting or discussion of illegal or pirated material

    Firmware falls under this category.

    @Blake you aren't exactly following the rules either. When you find a link such as the one above don't quote it because I can still see the link in your post. Report and move on. And your location in your profile breaks that same rule.
