    Sorry if it's a stupid question...
    Right now, my 2g Ipod Touch is running the jailbroken 3.0 firmware. I now want to upgrade to a jailbroken 3.1.2. Will creating a custom 3.1.2 ipsw with PwnageTool, and restoring to it in itunes result in a jailbroken 3.1.2?

    Thanks a bunch

    (PS, I'm running OS X 10.5.8)

    Dont use blackra1n if you can use pwnagetool. pwnagetool is less buggy. and yes upgrading from 3.0 jailbroken to 3.1.2 jailbroken will work. My friend did it and I did it and neither of us have had any problems

    No Pwnagetool makes a custom ipsw that you have to restore too. Blackra1n jailbreaks in about 30 seconds.

    Actually, if you're lucky, (it probably won't work) you can shift-Update to a pwned firmware.

    yes it will jailbreak it. i always use pwnage tool instead of blackra1n because it works so much better. with blackra1n i had so many problems.

    That barely ever works. If you use blackra1n you don't have to restore at all and it takes like a minute.
