    My 3rd gen iPod Touch is currently running 3.1.3 firmware. Is there a away to just download 4.0 firmware? NOT iOS 5, but 4.0. Any guides, etc.

    Not sure. Why didn't you update to 4.0 when it was first released may I enquire?

    well, if you're referring to the 8GB model in your sig, that's actually a second gen model (3rd gen only included 32/64). That means it will only update to 4.x

    Ok, my ipod broke down, while running 4.x. So, i got a new one from apple, and it was runnng 3.1.3, being as they dont update the devices when new firmware updates are available. My warrenty was up soon, so i would easily jailbreak it using jailbreakme.com. There are apps that i would like, but require the 4.x update.

    Apple is likely signing only ios5 installs on that ipod and if that is the case there is no way to get ios4.

    I'm pretty sure iOS 4.1 is still being signed. You just have to download the ipsw and dfu restore.

    I'm afraid not because Apple had closed the verification of ios 4.1. You will get an error

    A valid point was raised above, but not addressed:

    Is this an 8GB model, or a 32/64GB model? If it's 8GB, then you can't install iOS 5 on it anyway, so iTunes ought to offer to upgrade it only as far as 4.2.1.

    If you have the 8GB model, would this be adequate? I know it would be a little bit newer than the version 4.0 you're asking for...

    I'm mistaken then.
