    Make sure it's a 3G and not a 3GS. If you do have a 3GS, I would suggest that you do nothing at this point. Not sure if the same process works but:

    1) put the phone into dfu mode
    2) download 4.0 ipsw
    3) shift + restore 4.0 ipsw in iTunes
    4) run redsn0w 0.9.5 b5

    See if that will work.

    Well my iPhoto pops up when I plug my phone in si I know the plug is fine. iTunes is just not displaying my phone at all. it's not popping up like it normally does and it's not in the side bar of iTunes.. It is unlocked on tmobile. It worked with iTunes for at least a year and then all of a sudden it just stopped.

    Should I try to set it dfu mode and then use custom firmware. I was hopeing to just do an upgrade.
    Thanks for trying to help
