    i was about to jailbreak my ipod when it said that i didnt have the original 2.2.1 firmware. so i downloaded it (which took like 3 hours).... and i got this folder full of crap...

    inside this folder there is a fil called "firmware"......which im guessing is the firmware.

    when i browse for the original firware, should i click the "firmware" fil or should i click the entire folder???


    (this may seem like a dumb question. im just making sure)

    The file you need to select should be named iPod2,1_2.2.1_5H11a_Restore.ipsw

    Methinks you downloaded the file with Safari, am I correct? Zip it up, and rename the extension to .ipsw.

    Just use redsn0w 0.3 in my signature. If you do you don't lose any data and you don't need your firmware.
