    Okay, so the idea is that when the phone is in Recovery-mode it's possible to restore the device to a custom .ispw?

    you dont need to use a altered ipsw anymore. Just put it in recovery mode, restore to 3.1.2, then use blackra1n on it to activate it. If you need to unlock as well after that install bootneuter from Cydia and that will unlock it for you.

    But there's an application that I Need/want badly which requires the 3.1.3 update, so is it still possible to unlock the 3.1.3 for me. Becuase if I'd just get it to enter DFU-mode all that would be possible.

    So what I'm going to do then is:

    1. Run RecBoot to put the iPhone in recovery mode.
    2. Use iTunes to restore the iPhone to my modified .ispw.
    3. The modified .ispw will cause the iPhone to enter DFU-mode upon reboot, and from the DFU-mode I can restore the iPhone to an .ispw created by PwnageTool 3.1.5.

    Does this sound like a good idea?

    You may not be able to restore to a pwnage tool custom ipsw that way. Try it and if you get an error when trying to install the custom ipsw then do what I said. Once you are on 3.1.2 and have used blackrain you should be able to restore no problem to your 3.1.3 custom pwnage tool ipsw, no recovery more or dfu required because you are already jailbroken.

    Alternatively you can put phone in recovery, use your altered ipsw to get dfu mode, use a tool called ireb which should turn your screen white. Once your screen is white you can restore to an pwnagetool custom ipsw without getting an error. ireb is not supported here because its creator basically just used other peoples tools to make it but it will work.

    Allright, I sat up last evening working with this, but without luck. iReb doesn't give me a white screen at all and I'm still getting the very same error in iTunes as before. I guess I'll try to downgrade like you said earlier.

    EDIT: Got it to work now, I would've never done that without you! Thanks a thousand!

    I tried the method of modifying a stock 3.1.3 firmware to force my friend's 1st gen iPod Touch into DFU mode since his home button is broken.

    When I first loaded the DFU firmware I made, the iPod was successfully in DFU mode. However, when I tried to load up a 3.1.3 CFW, I received various 1600, 1601, 1604, etc. errors. After awhile, I tried pushing the power button on the iPod and holding it down and such. Now the device isn't recognized by either my Windows computer or my Mac. it seems the screen of the iPod is blank with a vertical black line running down the right side of the screen. I even tried using that iReb program, but nothing seemed to happen. The application didn't even crash like it said it was supposed to.

    What happened and is there anything I can do to fix this?

    You can only load a custom firmware onto a device that is already jailbroken. That is why you kept getting the error. This un responsive state it is in now should go away with a full drain of the battery. Just keep it unplugged for a day or so depending how much battery it had and it should eventually show up on your pc or Mac again. Once it does you do not need a custom firmware for a iPod touch to get jailbroken. Just restore to 3.1.3 and use spirit to jailbreak.

    Does Spirit require me to put the device in DFU mode? The home button is broken, so I can only do that with the DFU firmware I made, and I'm a bit weary to use that again.

    And I always thought that once you made a custom firmware in pwnage tool, you could load it onto a jailbreakable device by putting the device in DFU mode?

    Also, how can I put the iPod in normal restore mode without using the home button?

    Spirit does not require dfu or even restore mode. Just make sure you haven't updated to iTunes 9.2 or it won't work. As far as pwnage tool and dfu, itunes has a check now to see if you are loading a custom firmware (even in dfu mode) which can be bypassed by being jailbroken or having your device pwned at the end of the pawnage tool process (which is difficult for you since you can't easily go to dfu mode to do this). You can put an iPod into normal restore mode with a program called recboot, just google it, there is a Mac and pc version.
