    I am experiencing some problems with my iPhone, so I need to restore but the only option available in iTunes is "restore and update."
    Well, I was planning on jailbreaking once I restored, so updating really isn't an option. I am on 1.1.1, and I would like to restore. Is there any other way to get around the update and still get a restore?????

    I am depending on your advice!!! Please, I don't want to update... :(

    Option not shift

    You click on option and restore...not shift as previously suggested

    After you jailbreak your 1.1.1 iphone you can install a program on install.app called oktoprep under tweaks 1.1.1 and then do an upgrade to 1.1.2 on iTunes and download the 1.1.2 jailbreak and works perfectly fine. I am running it
