    I'm trying to restore and upgrade to 3.1.3 and iTunes just says "The iPod "(Name here)" could not be restored.
    The device isn't eligible for the requested build"

    How do I fix this, because I need to restore to 3.1.3

    I downloaded it straight through iTunes.

    I have iTunes 9.0 if that helps. Do I need 9.2 or something?

    do you have your SHSH's saved for 3.1.3? Apple has stopped signing that firmware for newer devices (MC model if it's an iPod Touch) I see that you have a second generation, so you can upgrade to iTunes 9.2 and get iOS4, then jailbreak it with Sn0wbreeze if it's an MC, or if it is an MB model with the old bootrom, then Redsn0w and PwnageTool will work too.

    Is there a way to update without Apple signing, because I don't have 3.1.3 SHSH's saved. I've only been on 3.1.2. I have an 8GB MC Model if that helps. If I update to 4.0, would Appbackup still work? I've heard a lot of things are buggy on 4.0

    Search for the firmware online and download it. Then hold down Shift as you click Restore. Then find the firmware. See if that does anything.

    Is mine 2G or 3G in this case. Should I download 3G one or 2G one. 8GB MC model.

    I did Shift+Click and it didn't work. It gave me a new error code "3194"

    You need to get 2G.Your iPod "may" be called a 3G but it isn't.Only 32 or 64GB 3rd gen iPods are considered 3rd gen.I got confused when upgrading to 4.0 since I have a iPod MC model which when I first got it I thought iwas 3G but it wasn't.
