    What firmware are you trying to restore to? If it's not 4.0.2, and you have a 3G, you'll need your SHSH blobs backed up.

    Use TinyUmbrella to check. Tick "Advanced Options" and for "Device/Version" find your iPod and the iOS version you're looking for and select it. Make sure the "Request from" is set to Cydia, and hit "Save my SHSH". Only if you are trying to restore to anything BUT 4.0.2.

    If it grabs the SHSH you want (it might not), use this guide for Windows (ugh) or use this guide for Mac OS X. Those guides are for 3.1.2, but it's the same for any firmware.

    Again everything I said in the above paragraph ONLY WORKS if you have your blobs.
