    Seems like my question in this thread

    How does the Restore work? If the Restore is restoring from the Apple site, does that mean a jailbroken v1.1.1 iPod Touch will never be able to restore back to the un-jailbreak state at the time when v1.1.2 is available at the Apple site?

    doesn't have a definite answer. I read somewhere in this forum that there is a way to download the v1.1.1 firmware but there was no link provided. Even with the v1.1.1 firmware on hand, is there a way to restore with that downloaded firmware?

    Should we un-jailbreak our v1.1.1 iPod touch before the v1.1.2 firmware comes out?

    If your that worried, the way to do save a restore file to use to restore is to press restore in itunes when plugged in. On the left side there will be download progress for that image, wait until 100% of it is downloaded, then x out of it or close itunes... and find that file.. you can use that later to restore fresh.

    I personally believe that Apple has given up on bricking.. they will have WAYY too many lawsuits and people complaining. Viva la resistance. They know ther
    is know way to stop modders, and its not illegal (because its 3rd party software that is free).

    So does anyone know how to do a manual restore?

    Now that we have the link and the 1.1.1 firmware how do we get it restored on the device?

    Please don't say use iTunes because that does not work.

    Thanks

    I used iTunes this morning to restore my Touch. It works. I just connected to the computer, hit restore in iTunes, and it restored it to like new.

    i think the question was how to restore to 1.1.1 firmware once the new firmare comes out and iTunes starts insisting on updating to it during restore process.
    Its a good question but i dont think anyone has a clear answer yet...

    Well, IMHO, if you wanted to update to firmware 1.1.2 but still remain jailbroke, then I would hold off on the update until confirmation of a working jailbreak app exists and works. Just cancel the option to update firmware when it comes up on iTunes.

    Theoretically however, if you do have 1.1.2 and want to restore to 1.1.1, doing a full restore with the downloaded update should work. Just make sure you place the update in the appropriate folder for iTunes to find and I would probably disconnect your internet connection incase iTunes want's to look for a newer version first before using the 1.1.1 file.

    Of course, this is all in theory as 1.1.2 is not out, so there's really no way to try it.

    Go to iTunes preferences and uncheck the box which says "Check for updates automatically" . This way you can update at your own will.

    how to manually restore

    if you want to manually restore download the firmware update by doing a normal restore first. Get the file which on a win computer is located at c:\documents and settings\youruserprofile\application data\apple computer\itunes\iPod software updates
    copy the firmware file from there. To manually restore disable automatic downloads. When you are ready to restore hod down the shift key and click restore in iTunes. A browse dialog comes up. Browse to your firmware and install it totally bypassing the new install. This works for mac too but I think you use the ctrl key. If the shift doesn't work on the pc try the ctrl key. One of those is the one. I used this twice when the jailbreak had problems this week.
