    Hi all,

    My 3rd Generation iPod Touch was originally on the iOSX 4.1 untill yesterday

    I upgraded it to 4.2.1 because Cydia wasent working and i unfortunently worked out that there is no untethered jailbreak for 4.2.1.

    So I have reverted it back to 4.1 and i have attempted to restore from a back up but all the backup files i found in mobilesync where for the 4.2.1 iOSX which are not compatible with my version of iPod.

    Is there anyway what so ever that i can recover the backups that iTunes automatically deleted so that i can restore from those files?

    You might have found a solution to this already...upgrade to 4.2.1 again, then restore from your backup, then shift+update to 4.1...done it before, worked fine with me upgrading to a lower firmware sounds odd but works

    Attach the device to the computer where the recovery software is installed. Unless the files are overwritten by new data, the undelete software can be used to Recover deleted files from iPod. The preview feature helps you to identify the files easily.

    I actually found an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 and i am on an iPod touch 4g. just go to www.greenpois0n.com and download your correct operating system's program. It supports windows, mac, and linux.
