    this is my first ipod.

    let me just say i want to destroy this thing right now.

    I have been trying to jailbreak the 2.2.1 firmware/upgrade to another firmware (3.0 or 3.1.2) so i can try breaking that.

    the problem:

    i try to install ANY ipsw i get 1601 / 1602 error. (i can let itunes reinstall 2.2.1 by itself fine, but NOTHING else.

    what i have tried:

    uninstall/reinstall itunes
    uninstall every apple prog/reinstall itunes 9.0.1
    uninstall every apple prog/reinstall itunes 8.2
    an "ifixwindows" tutorial on this site to fix this error

    what i need:

    To get it to take 3.1.2 so i can use blackra1n


    please for the love of god help me. i have random ipsw's, exe's, rar's and zip's strewn haphazardly across my desktop.

    Im a whiz with a pc, not afraid of a command prompt, but i just cant get this thing to take.

    please point me in the right direction or im going to have to pay apple for 3.1.2 and HOPE that that will somehow take.

    very sorry if this has been covered elsewhere on this forum but as i said Ive been lurking around here trying stuff all night.

    most people just hit 'restore' in itunes and you have the 3.1.2 firmware.

    that's gay.

    It won't even let you do it after you paid for it?

    are you holding "shift" when you click restore to allow you to select your file?
