    Hey guys,

    Newbie here! I have been reading up on jb/ unlocking and I have a question:

    I am thinking about selling my 3g with 3.1.3 jb/unlocked because of the bad things I've been reading about 4.0 on 3g (maybe I'll get more money with 3.1.3?).

    How do I erase the phone and keep 3.1.3? If I erase content/settings and try to restore as new, won't iTunes make me update to 4.0?

    The phone is currently 3.1.3 & not jb or unlocked.

    Thanks for any help, I can't believe the amount of tech knowledge on this forum!

    iPhone 3G 3.1.3 Firmware

    Make sure you're still using iTunes 9.1.1, you can Shift+Click the restore button (Option+Click on Mac) in iTunes and manually select that firmware.

    Ok, so I erase content/settings, download this firmware, restore with the downloaded firmware via shift & click restore, then jb/unlock?
    Will my backup that I am going to use to restore my i4 (when I get it!) be affected?

    Do you agree with keeping it 3.1.3? Or should I just upgrade to 4.0?

    By the way, thanks for the reply! I have been pretty excited because I am finally getting a lot of this jb/unlock stuff.

    I was just assuming he'd do a jailbreak with spirit, which iTunes 9.2 would kill.

    Do I need to jailbreak and back up shsh first or is that only required for 3Gs?
