    From what I have read, Apple stopped signing the 3.0 & 3.0.1 IPSW's for 3GS, so iTunes will no longer accept those only the 3.1 IPSW.

    So, I guess you will have to update to 3.1 to get your phone running (Ouch as you won't be able to unlock it)

    I would read the DevTeam blog before doing any upgrade. Google it, it will come up.

    You have no choice but to restore to 3.1. Hopefully you have your IBSS and IBEC files.
