    Okay I'm trying to restore my ipod touch so I can do another jailbreak (spirit un-tethered) I'm currently using blackr1an but when I try to restore I keep getting errors!

    1. The iPod 'name' could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible

    Any help would be appreciated

    did you download the right firmware for the device.
    EDIT: I see you have a 3G 8GB. You need the 2G firmware to restore

    Yes 3.1.2 what it's currently on.

    I've even tried updating to 4.0 (to try and downgrade again) but even that gives me errors!

    So if I get the 2G 3.1.2 firmware it will restore and I can jailbreak with spirit so I can have a un-tethered jailbreak?

    Thanks for your fast replys!
