    I'm new to these forums and the iPod itself but I was wondering if downloading a 4.0 IPSW file and selecting that in red snow, would this jail break my iPod?

    Just got my iPod and it came with 4.0.2

    grr but than this website says:

    You got an iPod touch 3G.
    It's black and has a capacity of 8GB.

    When I typed in the last 3 digits of my serial, Apple said if I had like an A something it was 2nd gen...
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    It even says on jailbreakme.com it's impossible to downgrade...

    Wrong. The Bootrom inside is different.

    Anyway, I can confirm that selecting 4.0 Firmware to Jailbreak with Redsn0w works, I did it yesterday to my friends.

    Downgrade to 4.0 and go to jailbreakme.com. but that might not work.
