hi, in order for me to jailbreak i need to restore my ipod touch to 3.1.2. I have downloaded the firmware but how do i extract it so i can use shift and find the firmware to restore to in order to move on with the jailbreak? i have winrar but i dont understand how to extract it so its compatible for m to use with blackrain and jailbreak.
Please please help!

you downloaded a firmware.
you should have downloaded an official one from Apple site.
It then should be in .ispw format. If not, tell me where you downloaded it from and I will see why it isn't .ispw (ipod firmware)
if it is .ispw simply continue process by selecting it with Shift-Restore

Im guessing you have downloaded it from a torrent site or somewhere else but not from apple.

You need to use winrar to extract the file to your PC & then when you use itunes to downgrade you can press shift & then select the firmware from the place where you have saved it
