Note that you need access to a Windows computer for this tutorial. I also suggest that you jailbreak your device, as it will quicken the process. What you need: ECID Grabber - Download Link iREB - Download Link Steps: 1. Put your iPod Touch 3G into recovery mode. If you are jailbroken, then all you have to do is shut your iPod off and turn it back on. 2. Now that your iPod is in recovery mode, run ECID Grabber and hit "Get ECID" 3. Write down the ECID number, it's 16 digits long. (or just Ctrl+C it) 4. Run iREB and choose the option at the bottom for ECID. 5. Paste or type in your ECID number and hit enter. 6. After the process is complete, you will have the .shsh file on your desktop. 7. Paste the ECID into a .txt file, and compress your new .txt and .shsh into a .zip or .rar archive 8. Store it somewhere safe! (I emailed it to myself) 9. Run Blackra1n to reboot your iPod. (if it's jailbroken, if it isn't run it anyways as it goes very quickly!) Thanks!
