    Hey, I was wondering if you could help me please. I'm not sure which category this goes into so please feel free to move it if there is a better place.

    I have an Iphone 3G version 3.1.3, and a MacBook Leopard 10.6.2

    I was at a party last night and saw a friend who had an un-jailbroken iphone and yet had background pictures and stuff. I asked him how he did it, and apparently with the newest update for my Iphone I can do the same. I just tried to update and it asked me to update my Mac, which I did. Re-started the computer and pressed 'update' again. Again, it asked me to update my Mac.

    Is there a way around this? It's sending me round and round in circles.

    Any tips and help would be appreciated.

    You need to have an iPhone 4 to set background pictures.

    Is there any point in updating my iphone through itunes when it's giving me a hard time? Is there much of a benefit?

    You don't many new features on the iPhone 3G with iOS 4. I think you can use folders and thats about it.

    Not entirely true, you need a 3Gs or a 4

    OP: Why don't you want to update your computer to 10.6.4?

    I do want to, but every time I update, the computer restarts, and then acts as if it's not updated. Though I can do most things with my Mac, this a little beyond me so I'm wondering if it's worth fussing over.
