i'm new to apple products and basically i'm just playing around ,trying to figure out how stuff is done with iProducts. so now i have this ipod touch 1G which i managed to upgrade to ios 3.1.3 through iTunes. i dont think its been jailbroken before but i'm not sure and i dont know if it matters. i have read many posts ,here and on other sites ,and this is what i managed to get so far: 1)i have a whitedoor ios7 ipsw file for ipod touch 1g 2) i managed to use ireb7/ireb4 to get into pwned DFU and DFU states. ( tried many times to get into it from redsnow but with no luck ,my device is not detected or something) 3) iTunes detects the device in restore mode and i'm able to choose my ipsw for the restore ( using SHIFT + resotre btn)

then i get errors 1600 or 1604 ,no matter how many times i tried ,i changed cords ,usb ports ,computers but nothing. i saw there are many things like shsh blobs ,baseband ( which i dont think is relevant in my case since its now a phone) ,etc which i may be misunderstading.

here are my questions: 1) should my ipod be jailbroken before this upgrade ? 2) how do i know the ipsw is the one i need ? (downloaded it from 3) what version of ireb should i use ? do i really need it ?

would love to get help with this upgrade and just understanding stuff.

thanks in advance Sivan

3.1.3 is the end of the road, grasshopper. Whited00r is a waste of time. :D

Hang onto that iPod though, it's a classic.

No problem. I have one myself, they don't make em like that any more, it's built like a tank.
