    I have finally found a method to restore to 3.1.1/3.1.2 without having 3.0 pwned. I have tried this on my iPod touch 2g, and I am typing this as iTunes is copying everything back on to it. This may also work on the ipod touch 3g 8gb, but I can't test this because I don't have that kind of ipod touch. Here we go:

    What you need:
    rslite: http://www.redsn0w.com/rslite101.zip
    libusb: http://www.ellert.se/PKGS/libusb-2008-09-27/10.3/libusb.pkg.tar.gz
    a 2.1.1 ipsw
    your pwned 3.1.1/3.1.2

    What to do:

    1. download 2.1.1 from apple's servers
    2. make a new directory for everything: mkdir pwn312, and cd pwn312
    3. run this command on the ipsw: unzip /path/to/211/ipsw/iPod2,1_2.1.1_5F138_Restore.ipsw Firmware/dfu/iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu
    4. then this: mv Firmware/dfu/iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu iBSS211.dfu
    5. run this command on your pwned 3.1.1/3.1.2 ipsw: /path/to/312/ipsw/ipswname.ipsw Firmware/dfu/iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu
    6. then this: mv Firmware/dfu/iBSS.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu iBSS3pwned.dfu
    7. then this: /path/to/312/ipsw/ipswname.ipsw Firmware/dfu/iBEC.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu
    8. and this mv Firmware/dfu/iBEC.n72ap.RELEASE.dfu iBEC3pwned.dfu
    9. and finally this: rm -r Firmware/dfu
    10. now, install libusb if you haven't already
    11. now, make sure the contents of the rslite directory is in your pwn312 directory
    12. Put your device into DFU Mode, not recovery mode. If anything is on the screen, you are in reecovery mode, not DFU Mode.
    12. run the command: rslite
    13. now type !iBSS211.dfu ( after you run the command, the screen on you ipod touch should turn white )
    14. run the command: rslite again
    15. now type #pwn211ibss.txt
    16. now type !iBSS3pwned.dfu
    17. now run rslite again.
    18. now run the command: !iBEC3pwned.dfu
    19. now restore in iTunes with your ipsw.
    There you go, you should now have 3.1.1/3.1.2 on your iPod touch without having to restore to 3.0

    EDIT: this will not work on the ipod touch 3g 8gb because apple patched 24kpwn

    I am not talking about going back to 2.2.1 at all. This uses the arm7_go exploit to bootstrap the 3.1.2/3.1.1 pwned restore.
