    Tryig to JB my ipod touch 2g. downloaded Redsn0w, and then the 3.1.2 firmware (which is what I have on the ipod). But when I browse through Redsn0w and choose the firmware file, I get this error "unable to recognize specified IPSW". Tried this first with Redsn0w 0.7.2 and now with Redsn0w 0.9.2 and with two different IPSW files. didn't matter.
    Im using Mac OS X 10.5

    Thanks

    Roy

    Kingcoolryan - as I mentioned I tried this with two different firmware files. If you have a specific url you think I should dl from - please let me know.
