While away from home, I updated my iPod Touch (2nd gen.) to iOS 4.2.1 using a MacBook Pro running MacOS 10.6.3 and iTunes 10.1. I returned home, plugged the iPod into my PowerMac G5 with MacOS 10.4.11 and iTunes 9.2.1 and, yup, got the message that I will need to install iTunes 10.1 if I want to sync with iOS 4.2. Of course, iTunes 10.1 is not compatible with MacOS 10.4.11.

I would gladly downgrade the iPod Touch to iOS 4.1 but I cannot find it on the Apple website. I do have a file "iPod2,14.1_8B117Restore.ipsw" in the iPod Software Updates folder in iTunes which might work, but as the iPod Touch is no longer recognized, I do not know how I would do that.

Any help appreciated.
