Angry Changing name of iPhone in iTunes?

Hi,

Wonder if someone can help. I recenetly restored my iPhone. Syncing with iTunes afterwords restored all my contacts, wall papers, texts etc but one thing I noted - the iPhone no longer shows up in iTunes with my original iphone name - but now rather as just "iPhone". Is there anyway i can change the phone name?

Thanks

You should be able to just click on the name in iTunes' sidebar a couple of times (slowly) to bring up the editable box just like you can with any other iPod, or file in Finder. Is that not working?

What do i do with the IPSW when its done downloading?
This has nothing to do with the thread title. Ask a mod to move it.

All you need to do is click option restore to bring up a finder window (or shift restore on Windows) after entering DFU mode.
