    Hi everyone, I have looked all over the place for an answer to upgrade my 2g 16gb ipod touch to 3.1.2 from 3.0 but I could not find a solution that would work here is what I've tried.

    1. The Shift/Restore method in itunes does not work, says its firmware is uncompatable.

    2. Ive downloaded redsn0w 9.4 and used it, but I either get the white screen or the "waiting to reboot" screen comes up and doesnt do anything. (ive tried the unplug/plug method, that didnt work either)

    3. Should I just update to 3.1.3 and downgrade back to 3.1.2 or is there a better solution.

    Any info would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks

    the shift+restore says its uncompatable is because you got the wrong firmware for the wrong device. try getting a 2G ipod touch 3.1.2 firmware from my sig

    It's also no longer possible with iPod Touch 3G devices... but you can go to 3.1.2. Of course, you could've also downloaded it back in the day by asking iTunes to check for a later FW release, then not going through with the install, IIRC.
