    Hey guys, I need some help... when I hit shift and click retore at the same time and choose the 4.0 restore firmware it keeps telling me that it is not compatible! Why? Oh and to let yall know my ipod is jailbroken running 3.1.3 if it helps. And the reason why i'm not just hitting restore and update itself is because our internet is so slow that it takes a couple of hours to download so i downloaded it from a different pc....

    When I bought it the man said it was a 3gen 8gb but some apps and some programs say it is a 2gen so i just downloaded the iso4 for 3gen. But also tried the 2nd and it didn't work.

    Its basically a 2nd gen. iOS4 on 2nd gen is terrible and you dont get most of the features, like multitasking, wallpaper, etc.

    Plug your device into iTunes
    Go to iPod info screen
    Press Restore (don't press CTRL)

    It will automatically download the official Apple firmware and put it on your device. Beware though, using this method will cause all downloaded files on your iPod touch to be deleted if not backed up first. You will lose your jailbreak if you jailbroke it.
