Download i Reb v5 for windows and whited00r 6 for your device from the Whited00r 6 for i Pod touch 1G download page3.

With your i Pod connected, open up i Reb and select your device and follow the instructions on-screen until it gives you a popup saying it has completed.4. Shift click the restore button in i Tunes, and navigate to the folder where you downloaded the whited00r to, and select it.6.

These software updates include bug fixes, support for new features and the latest versions of mac OS and Windows, and other improvements. In some (not very common) cases, you may need to restore your i Pod to factory settings before you can update its software.

Restoring your i Pod erases all of its data and settings and returns it to the state it was in when you first got it.

I've looked online, and again didn't find anything helpful for anything lower than i OS 3.1.3.
