    I have a 16GB Touch running 1.1.1 that was Jailbroken using JailBreakMe shortly after getting it. I want to remove Installer and remove the Jailbreak but the restore from iTunes or General, Options, Remove all data and settings (or whatever the direct path is on the iPod) is not resetting it to default. I want it to be exactly like it was when I opened the box after originial purchase and upgrade it to 2.1. Did anyone else have this same problem trying to restore back to factory settings??

    Dont want jailbreak anymore...at least until I know how to install and remove it with ease if I want to.

    Thanks!

    restoring to factory settings wont remove the jailbreak apps, if you want to upgrade to 2.1 look for a tutorial on how to put your ipod into DFU mode, once done use the shift+restore method to install 2.1 onto your ipod

    Do I need to download the 1.1.1 firmware before I do this so when I do the shift restore method I will need to browse to the file, correct? Do you know where I can find the correct firmware to download? I have been reading around and see a lot of different options on doing the shift restore method. Still a newby on this so sorry if it is a stupid question. thanks again.
