    I have an ipod touch 32gb but i'm not sure if its 3g or 2g, every time i downgrade it to 3.1.2 with a 2g firmware it says it isnt compatible, but when i downgrade with a 3g firmware it says it isnt eligible for the requested build, if someone knows how to fix this issue please dont hesitate to tell me... And yes i know what a 1st gen ipod touch is.

    settings, general, about, model
    MB=2nd Gen
    MC=3rd Gen

    if its a 3rd gen 32 gig it should have better hardware, as in more ram and faster processor. and it has accessibility features.

    yeah i knew about mc and mb models, but what about the firmware downgrade, i cant downgrade it because it says it isnt eligible for the requested build, is it because it doesnt support custom firmware?

    if its a 3rd gen, you cant downgrade because apple stopped signing the 3.1.2 firmware for the 3rd generation ipod touch.
