    One of my 3g phones 3.0 whent into boot-apple logo off mode yesterday. I'm going to use this phone till it's dead. That may be now but I hope not.

    I'm on Windows so I will need to get a custom ipsw for 4.2.1, I also have a ATT sim (to avoid battery drain/GPS issues)

    Can I restore 3.0 to my 3g without knowing the basband info? I also want to get it to 4.2.1. and now is as good a time as any.

    Thanks in advance

    iPhone 3G doesn't have an updated bootrom that requires SHSH checks to restore. Just simply try to restore to the 3.0 by holding Shift/Alt/Opt+Click and clicking Restore in iTunes and browse to the 3.0 IPSW.

    Tell me exactly what you're seeing.

    Have you tried plugging the phone in and clicking Update in iTunes? If you have, what's the error you're getting?

    You can get to any version of 3 or 4.2.1 which is the current version.

    The best option is probably 3.1.3. Any of these can be restored through Itunes. You cannot get to any version of 4 except current version 4.2.1 without SHSH hashes.

    Thanks, I will do 3.1.3 , just wait for the 4.2.1. to be release. You know this will release the day after I do this.

    Am I missing anything?

    1. Find custom ipsw 3.1.3.
    2. Finish via Cydia Ultrasn0w

    Thanks for your help
