    Don't use 1g or 2g firmware on your 3G. Download the proper 3G firmware.

    why what would happen if i did use the 1g ipsw file?

    i cant download the one the for the ipod touch 3g because my broadband provide put me a 3gb limit and i have only got 100mb to download left

    It wouldn't boot properly because of hardware changes in the 3G. Even I it did boot, the volume rockers wouldn't work, neither would the speakers and a whole lotta other problems.
