    ok heres the deal, i've been using ios 4.0 beta for a awhile now, and i just decided to go back to 3.1.3 because i wanted to be jailbroken again. So i backed up all my data on itunes and started looking for ways to get back to 3.1.3.

    so i successfully got back to 3.1.3, and now i want to restore my data using a backup from when i was on 4.0 software. But iTunes is telling me i cant use that backup to restore my data because i am now using an older firmware on my phone. Does anyone know anyway i can bypass this because i really don't want to go back to a backup from about 4months ago because i will lose a lot of data like contacts, sms, ect... Thanks!

    i am using an iPhone 3gs, and running windows vista, and windows 7

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Wait till tommorow when 4.0 is officially out and update your iphone.
    Then it will let you restore from the 4.0 backup saved on your itunes.

    Thanks but the thing is, is I don't want to update to 4.0 until a jailbreak is available for it, but I really want my backup from when I was using the beta back, if theirs any hacks to force iTunes to use my backup from 4.0 on my 3.1.3?
