    You can use PwnageTool to upgrade to 4.2.1 (if you have a mac) while retaining your baseband to unlock. Or you can download a custom 3g 4.2.1 ipsw from a website that you can trust.

    importantly, you must not update via iTunes, that will prevent you from unlocking.

    Hi PsstGreek,

    I heard that you can only stop up to 3.1.3 on an iphone 3g. is that true?

    You can go to the newest iOS on a 3G. An iPhone 2G stops at 3.1.3

    People have said when they've upgraded their 3G to 4.0 or higher that it has slowed down their iPhone a lot. That's what you must have heard.

    With a 3G i'd stick with 3.1.3
    Anything higher than that and it will be slower than a turtle.
