iPod Touch And iPhone OS 3.1 .IPSW Restore File Direct Download Links :


Using the file provided here (iPod3,1_3.1.1_7C145_Restore.ipsw) on a 2G 32GB iPod touch will get you the message: Action could not be performed as this firmware is incompatible. Also it says the file here is 297mb. Once downloaded, it's actually 307mb. Maybe the link isn't downloading the right file?

The links are correct and the file-size difference is because how your download manager and Operating-system calculates and covert bytes to Megabytes, Firefox shows the size 297 MB as shown below.
