    Is there a way to get itunes to download the 3.0 firmware for iphone 3g without restoring the phone?
    i did this before i think when i jailbroke but it's been almost a year and i'm in an extreme rush.

    if someone could give me a quick response. thanks much appreciated

    Can't you just click update rather than restore?

    something happened to my phone that basically broke the software. it asks to be restored. tried many things but now i can only restore as it's the only way itunes will recognize the device

    In that case you're going to have to restore. Hopefully you've got a recent backup!
