Today's video will show you how to downgrade your iPhone and iPod Touch from 3.1.3 back to 3.1.2.
PLEASE READ: IF YOU HAVE THE IPHONE 3G S, THE IPOD TOUCH 2ND GEN MC-MODEL, OR IPOD TOUCH 3RD GEN, THEN YOU /MUST/ HAVE SAVED YOUR SHSH ECID FILE ON 3.1.2 IN CYDIA. THIS MEANS THAT YOU MUST HAVE BEEN JAILBROKEN ON 3.1.2 TO DO THIS IF YOU ARE USING ONE OF THE DEVICES MENTIONED ABOVE. IF YOU GET A MESSAGE IN ITUNES SAYING "Requested build is not eligible," IT IS BECAUSE OF THIS. PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU!!!
This method works with ALL devices, although it is kind of useless for the iPod Touch 1st Gen, iPod Touch 2nd Gen Non-MC, iPhone 1st Gen, and iPhone 3G because they can be jailbroken on 3.1.3 with this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BktNCG_h58Q
