    Hey guys, so I have just purchased a 3G iPod Touch running 4.0.2. I am completely new to jailbreaking, but I understand that you cannot do it if you have 4.0.2. So, my question is, how do I downgrade to x.x.x firmware version (what should I downgrade to??) and then what program should I use to jailbreak!

    I know, complete noob here, but I have been reading your posts and you seem both knowledgeable and extremely helpful, so thanks in advance for your time!!

    You can try and use tiny umbrella to save your SHSH which will allow you to jailbreak but I doubt you will be able to get any as it is brand new (though stranger things have happened). If you cannot get SHSH for 4.0.1 then you cannot downgrade and jailbreak and will have to wait for the next jailbreak to come out.

    well okay, it was "brand new off ebay" but my brother plugged it in and updated it on his computer. He wants me to jailbreak it, but he did not know you couldnt update. So in short, it HAS been upgraded from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2

    does this change things?

    The Firmware Umbrella Just give you a better shot. Download tiny umbrella from the link, run it as administrator, plug in your ipod and press Save my SHSH. If it is able to get your SHSH for 4.0.1 then you can downgrade to 4.0.1
