    I jailbroke my iPod Touch 2g for 3.1.2 . Now, my friend wants me to jailbreak his iPod Touch 3g (32gb)for him, but he purchased his iPod in Korea (that's in Asia for those of you out there who know nothing). After i downloaded the 3.1.2 firmware for iPod touch 3g, when i try and restore his iPod with it, i get the following error after it says Extracting Software , and Verifying restore with apple.

    The error is : The iPod "____'s iPod" could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build.

    Any help?

    apple stopped signing 3.1.2. if the ipod has 3.1.1, leave it that way and jailbreak with blackra1n. if you upgrade to 3.1.3, you cannot jailbreak or even downgrade it.

    The iPod touch 3g has 3.1.3 at the moment.

    On my iPod touch 2g, i was able to downgrade from 3.1.3 to 3.1.2. Doesn't the same apply for 3g?

    you cant downgrade 32 gigs. maybe you downgraded before apple stopped signing 3.1.2. since they stopped, you cant downgrade to that firmware anymore. if its 32 gig 3G on 3.1.3, there is no way to jailbreak it.
