    Hello, would like to upgrade my ipod touch 3.1.2 2G MC model to 4.0 to have the new functionalities of it.

    I tried to download from the internet a firmware 4.0 for ipod touch 2g. then i pressed shift while clicking on "restore" in itune. It wasn't a succes because when i upgraded it just said "error 13".

    Does i need to upgrade my itune ? Mine is 9.0.

    Is there anything elese i can do to upgrade my ipod touch 2g to 4.0 ?

    Thanks

    1. Yes, in order for you to have 4.0 on your iPod you must update your iTunes to the newest version.

    2. Also, you will not be able to upgrade to 4.0 because Apple has stopped signing or "verifying" it. You will only be able to go to 4.0 if you have saved the SHSH signatures for it. If not, then you will have to upgrade to 4.0.2. Unfortunately, a jailbreak for 4.0.2 for MC models has not been released yet. So I would advise you to either stay on 3.1.2 and jailbreak it with Spirit or upgrade to 4.0.2 and wait for the jailbreak for it to come out.

    1. You must update your iTunes version.

    2. To restore to 4.0 you must have your SHSH Blobs backuped up from either Cydia or TinyUmbrella.

    3. Was your iPod jailbroken ? If yes there is a chance that Cydia has your 4.0 SHSH Blobs

    Try updating to the newest version, 4.0.2 then use a backup of 3.1.2 (If you synchronized your iPod to iTunes recently, use that backup.) And that 4.0.2 jailbreak thing is like Xbox 360s; If you have an non-Jtag-able db version you can't Jtag it until the next exploit is found...and so far, no exploits have been found in 4.0.2...version 3.1.3 is better than 3.1.2 btw.
