3rd Gen 8GB Itouch. Hackable?
Yeah. Iv searched the internet over and over, and cannot find a solid answer till before BlackRa1ns last post. So I'm going to ask on an active forum. Is this Jailbreakable? Wikipedia tells me I can tether it with Blackrains latest release. Is this true?
Edit: Its an Ipod Touch BTW.

Your iPhone model is wrong. If it's thethir generation iPhone, then it's the 3G[s]. The 3G[s] does not come in 8GB.
If it's the SECOND generation iPhone, the iPhone 3G, then that does come in 8GB.
THE 1st generation iPhone, the iPhone 2G, also comes in 8GB.
So, which model do you have?

If it's on 3.1.2 as the site said, ten yes, you're in luck.
you'd simply go to blackra1n and download the applcation hosted there.
You may, however, have a tethered jailbreak. Here I'd a quick cut and copy about what that is.
Do a search for "tethered jailbreak"!
If this is a new 3G[s], then it can still be jailbroken or unlocked, but you just can't ever let the battery die, or reboot the iPhone when the iPhone is not near a computer.
The phone is new. Apple updated the hardware on newer models. Ultimately, when you get the "Connect to iTunes" message, DO NOT RESTORE.
Connect the iPhone to the computer, spend 30 seconds, run Blackra1n RC3/4, RE-jailbreak, and that's it.
It takes less than a minute.
ALSO, being that this is a new iPhone 3G[s], that requires a tethered jailbreak, I also suggest getting a battery case.
A good one is "Case-Mate Fuel" (google it) but it's ugly as sin. It will however, act as a case AND a charger. Or you could go to BestBuy an pick up a "InCase PowerSlider" case.
That, and a car charger. That way the iPhone never goes off. If you have a laptop, that's ideal/superb.
Let me know how that goes.

If it's an MC model iPod touch, it can't be jailbroken on 3.1.3.
And unles you were previously jailbroken ON 3.1.2, AND saved your SHSH hashes in Cydia, AND have your computers server/hosts file editted to point to Saurik's servers so that he can authenticate the install.
But NONE of that will downgrade your bootrom. That's a hardware issue.
A complicated one.
And just because you didn't originally get an answer that you LIKE does NOT mean you didn't get an answer. If someone tells you that you can't do it, what, you keep on going for multiple opinions until you hear one that pleases you?
Not a good idea.

And to further explain why - there are no current tools out there designed to jailbreak an iPod touch on 3.1.3.
The dev team blogs flat out tell any 3G[s] users with the new bootrom OR the newest iPod touches with the new bootrom to STAY AWAY from 3.1.3.
The same thing with sn0wbreeze. And j can be wrong, but I believe that it's the same for PwnageTool.
As far as redsn0w and blackra1n, to my knowledge (and someone correct me if I am wrong) neither of those tools can jailbreak an iPod touch g3.
Now, as far as downgrading, unless you meet all of the requirements listed in my last post, I don't think it possible - HOWEVER, I mainly deal with iPhones, not iPods. So if anyone else has information that I'm not aware of, please help this guy out.
