    Foolproof (iPhuc) method:

    1) Find a recent copy of iPhuc. Google it (for windows, try iPhuc Win32)

    2) Make sure you have your 1.1.1 ipsw file.

    3) Copy your 1.1.1 restore ipsw file to a separate directory, this will be your working file.

    4) Extract your ipsw file (it's just a renamed zip file - use winrar or winzip, I had trouble using the built in zip extraction in Windows Explorer)

    5)Navigate to Firmware\dfu and find the file that begins with WTF

    6)Copy this file to your iPhuc folder.

    7) Connect your ipod to your computer and open iphuc

    8)Type the following (w/o quotes):
    "enterrecovery"

    9) Wait on the ipod to reboot into recovery mode

    10) Now, in the recovery menu enter:
    a) "filecopytophone WTF.s5l89OOxall.RELEASE.dfu" (s5L89 Oh Oh (not zeros))

    b) "filecopytophone WTF.s5l900xall.RELEASE.dfu" (s5L89 zero zero)

    c) "cmd go"

    11) Your ipod should reboot.

    12) Open iTunes, it should say it found an iPod in recovery mode. Yay.

    13) Shift-click on restore and find your ORIGINAL (not unzipped) 1.1.1 restore file.

    14) Double-click, restore, wait, and you'll be back to 1.1.1

    Thats too much work. I've downgraded mine like 20 times with all these versions of 1.1.3 everywhere. Try this.

    1). Plug device into itunes.
    2). Hold down your Home and Power button until the ipod disappears from itunes, at that point release ONLY the power button.
    3). Continue to hold the Home button down until the ipod appears in itunes again.
    4). Then try what you were doing, shift + click the Restore option and browse to the 1.1.1 firmware on your pc. That should do it.

    Good Luck

    The above definitely works perfectly, I have downgraded TWICE with that method, all went smoothly!

    Also, having 7.5 helps, so if that doesn't work, PM me and i'll get you 7.5

    It should, however if it doesn't you could do a restore by DFU mode, which is explained in the link I provided above.

    I had troubles downgrading from 1.1.3 after trying the ziphone jailbreak, and failing. I would get an error. iTunes 7.6 would not let me restore 1.1.1 or 1.1.2, but I would be able to restore 1.1.3 again. This was attempted on multiple computers and multiple versions of iTunes (7.4, 7.5 and 7.6 - on Vista and XP). I tried ipodtouchmaster's youtube video link method and it worked on the first try.
