Sorry if this seems like a totally stupid question. I have tried to find an answer but was unable. I have an original iphone 2g that is jailbroken and unlocked running 1.1.4. After 3 years of trouble free life my phone now freezes a few times a day. I would like to restore? my phone and start over. unlock and jailbreak. Can I do this without bricking the thing. I have had so much contrary advice that i have done nothing. I came across this site in my search for an answer and have my fingers crossed. Please excuse any stupid or incorrect info as I am a bit tech. challenged. Thanks in advance A little more info and a few additional questions: Presently firmware is 04.04.05 version is 1.1.4 unlocked and jailbroken using pwnage 2.0 I believe Is there a down side to upgrading to 3.1.2? Will that mess with my baseband? Or does that matter? I also read somewhere to never restore from a backup. wtf? The most common advice I have had is to restore to the latest software then run blackra1n. Can I then restore from my present backup to get stuff back on phone or am I totally out in left field? Sorry ! I am experiencing information overload. I just want to do the best and safest thing taking into acct. the previous unlock and jailbreak. If that even matters. Thanks for your comments and understanding.
