    I got a serious problem with my iPhone 3g.
    Two weeks ago i installed 3.0 Beta 2 and it was working pretty ok untill today.
    I was writing an sms and it totally crashed. Showing a pink/purple display with the connect to iTunes sign.
    Now i have tried to restore it many times even using XCode.
    What is on it is not a problem to erase. But i get all sorts of errors when i try to restore it. iTunes tells me (in options) that i have synced backups from 5:th April and i cant find that file to restore from.
    I have also restored it to the 3.0 Beta 2 file and choosen "New Iphone" in iTunes but still showing that i should connect it to iTunes and restore it.
    What can i do? I really need to get it working soon.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards .

    It crashed because beta 2 expired, and it won't let you install beta 2 because it's expired. Go into your dev portal where you got beta two, and download beta 3.
