    Hello everyone. After day of searching for a way to downgrade my ipod I finally found the easiest way.
    First of all I would like to say it worked for me and I'm not sure if it will work for anyone else. Also, my iPod was replaced by Apple so I don't have any SHSH blobs saved. When it came back it was on the 4.1 firmware.
    All I did was download the 4.0 firmware, and the 4.1 firmware (which isn't necessary). I copied the name of the 4.1 firmware "iPod2,1_4.1_8B117_Restore" and pasted it on the name of the 4.0 firmware. I then went into iTunes 10, and clicked on my iPod. I pressed shift and clicked on the restore button then selected the firmware I had just renamed. It started to restore, and it actually worked. I now have 4.0 back on my iPod touch. I hope it works for you as well

    unfortunately didn't work for me. It came up with an error or some sort when it was trying to "verify ipod restore update with apple"
