    I have an iPod touch 8GB MC model and its on 3.1.2 and i want to update it to iOS4. So i downloaded the iOS 4 firmware for ipod touch 2g. I put it in DFU and option-click restore and update but for both i got an error that says the iPod update server couldnt be contacted or is temporary unavailable. is it cuz apple stopped signing it?

    yes i searched.
    yes i DFU'd right.
    yes i have the latest version of iTunes.
    thanks.

    Just upgrade to 4.0.2 if you want to upgrade so bad. You can't get to just 4.0, because it is not the latest firmware...

    No are you sure your connected to the internet?

    Apple did stop signing it but you would get an error like 3194.

    You CAN jailbreak it.
    Use the latest Redsn0w and 4.0.2 ISPW
