Whenever I try to shift-click on restore and try to update my iTouch, it gives me a 3194 error.
Do you mean your trying to downgrade from 4.0 to 3.1.3 or actually upgrade? If your trying to update don't restore to the new update just press update in iTunes to update it.
Oh, I forgot to mention that I want to jailbreak my iTouch too.
And I mean to upgrade from 3.1.3 to 4.0.
Is it a first gen?
The first gen isn't compatible with 4.0 and above.
It's a 2G MC.
I actually had problems updating too, so I'd try downloading the (correct) firmware again and then try it with that.
If that doesn't work, sorry.
Since 4.0, Apple has added more security so that you can only update to the most recent update. However, since this is a software thing, and not a hardware thing, it is easily bypassable. Here's a bit more information on the subject: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/833937433/blob-banter
It is not easily bypassable. You might be shit out of luck. I'm in the same situation as you trying to update some iPods to 4.0 after I have backed up their SHSH blobs and no luck.
Is there anything special about 4.0? Like, does it run more apps than 3.1.3?
Cause if there isn't any difference, than I won't even bother trying to update it anymore
You're probably out of luck, as Apple just stopped signing 4.0 recently. If your SHSHs were backed up on Cydia/Umbrella (unlikely, but it wouldn't hurt to try it), you could restore to 4.0.
Folders is probably the most significant iOS 4.x feature for iPod touch 2G; you can put multiple apps in a "folder" to save space on your SpringBoard.
Oh, I see, then I won't bother.
Thanks everyone who replied!
You have to change the hosts file for iTunes. Then download the 4.0 firmware, and update it holding the shift key and click restore button while your iPod is in DFU mode.(Does not require shsh blobs)
Actually, is there any way to jailbreak a 3.1.3 MC Model?
Yes. You can use Spirit (requires iTunes 9.0-9.1.1, but an unofficial 9.2-compatible version exists) or Star.
There is also an app that can get you folders in Cydia, but I think its payed (categories?). Also, star has been buggy lately, tried with a few itouches.. but I've never had problems with Spirit. Unfortunatly, if you have iTunes 10, you'll need to downgrade to 9.2.
