    Hi. Good Evening everyone.

    I bought a 8gb Ipod touch 3g last week which was on sale here. link is here http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?sku_id=0665000FS10129471&catid=25653&logon=&langid=EN&dm=DEBUG.

    This is my first apple device and i can say it is a magnificent device. When i plug it in with itunes, there was an update and i clicked the update, now my firmware is 3.1.2

    Question: Can i bring it back to the old firmware? How? I dont even know what was my firmware version before. (i want the firmware back to the original because when i was reading about jailbreaking stuffs, the dev team advised not to update to 3.1.2 for the time being).

    I havent try blackrain. i want to read more about it before doing it. thank you for your time.

    Sorry, once you update there is no going back.

    Blackra1n works great though.

    Well, since you updated to 3.1.2, the only firmware before that for 3G iPod Touches is 3.1.1, and you need blackra1n to jailbreak either firmware. So there is no difference.
