My mom gave me her old iPhone 3G and said if I could fix, I could have it. It was stuck in recovery mode for months, took me a while but it's fixed. None of the apps that I want to install work as Apple has udated the software for the newer models of iPhone so it's virtually useless to me. I used sn0wbreeze (sp?) and restored it to the latest version for the 3G. I don't really care too much about the phone but I'd hate to destroy it. I want to go back to sn0wbreeze and try and create a firmware for the iPhone 5's latest software update in hopes that I can use all the apps that I wish to use. How much would that screw up my phone? I have no problem in doing it, I just don't want more problems than I can handle.
