    Hey All,

    I am after a little help and guidance to solve a simple thing...but the reason why I did the following just beggars belief!! Anyways...here goes...

    I STUPIDLY updated to 3.1.3 firmware via iTunes and safe to say...my iPod Touch is now 'not so nicely' Apple'd.

    So..to get rid of the Official Firmware...I downgraded to Official 3.0 firmware, and then I Jail-broke it. And thats what I have on the iPod Touch right now!

    So far...so good...

    OK...now what I wanna do is update the iPod to 3.1.2 again, but as Apple is no longer 'signing' 3.1.2...I cannot just download the 3.1.2 IPSW and restore using that in iTunes, as Apple do not allow it any more. (iTunes says something about IPSW not being compatible!?)

    So has anyone got any ideas on how I can get 3.1.2 back on my iPod Touch, so that I can jailbreak it with Blackra1n.

    I'm pretty good with the redsn0w, balckra1n, ultrasn0w apps etc...so the guidance does not have to be too detailed!!

    Cheers for reading my post...and any help would be greatly appreciated!

    the only other way would be to download the FW not through itunes, which is illegal...

    I tried that, went to iTunes..did the Shift+Restore thing and selected the downloaded 3.1.2 ISPW...but iTunes still said NO.

    Thanks for the quick response though! Anyone else have any ideas!?

    Ok in fact that this is the 2nd Gen Forum , the 2nd gen Touch Model FW have no apple signature. So you can downgrade and upgrade as much as you want..
    You just need the FWs..

    and @austers. if you have a MB and not a MC model its 2nd gen and not 3rd.

    It says 1C, and it's a 3rd gen since it's tethered.

    this totally worked to downgrade to 3.1.2 and rejailbreak, on my late 2009 2g ipod touch.

    Edit:
    Thanks alot by the way.
