    I have an ipod touch 3g v4.3.1 and it's jailbroken
    I want to restore it then upgrade it to v5.1.1. I downloaded 2 firmwares. 4.3.1 and 5.1.1
    I can't restore my ipod touch because when I press shift and click restore, there a dialog box that says "the ipod could not be restore because the firmware file is not compatible.
    But when I just click restore, it can't contact the ipod ssoftware update server and sometimes, there is a different dialog box that says "there was a problem downloading the software for the ipod. an unknown error occurred (-23)"
    My OS is windows 7

    Please help me T^T I don't have much knowledge about idevices .__.

    6.0.1 is the latest firmware for your device then. The file name should start iPod4,1.....
    You can only go to 5.1.1 if you have 5.1.1 SHSH.
