@ Anonymous: Yes this does actually work. If you mess it up, you can just go into DFU mode and Restore your iPod.

I recently purchased the Touch 2G and upgraded the firmware to 3.1.2 at the itunes store.

The link on your firmware download page to the v3.1.1 firmware apparently points to the apple website, except that it's an intranet site that isn't available to the public.

The link to the .de download site allows the download of the v3.1.2 firmware, but the redsn0w program generates an error: "Unable to recognize specified IPSW."

If you want to use the 3.1.2 firmware, you can not use Redsn0w to jailbreak. You need to use Blackra1n to jailbreak.
