    I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I tried to Downgrade my iPod touch 8GB (I think 2nd Gen) (MC Model) It was working perfectly fine before, but then I tried to downgrade it to 3.1.2 from 3.1.3 and it gave me Error 28 (A hardware error [but it was working before]) I tried DFU mode and on my Computer and NetBook (Both Win 7). I was downgrading so I could Tether it.

    Please help me: (

    if its a MC you cant downgrade unless you got SHSH, but since its a 8GB you can downgrade using a 2g 3.1.2 ipsw. just use coca cola's guide

    1) But what's SHSH?

    2)And is there any way I can get my iPod out of recovery mode, into regular mode?

    3) I have the .ispw but after the long Verifying With apple, It stops.

    4) on the guide it says, "Edit: This might be patched by Apple in newly shipped 8GB's.. some people get error 28 who have recently gotten an iPod Touch 3G 8GB" Could it actually be 3G? How could you find out?

    I can't tell because it's stuck in recovery mode... But i guess it's a MC model because it says that on the packaging.

    And again, whats SHSH?

    So you get the shsh. Then the 3.1.3 Ipsw file. Shift + restore choose the firmware file. And it verifies back to you instead of apple?

    I have a 3g touch with 3.1.3 and want to downgrade to 3.1.2

    cheers
