Restoring to 3.1.2
Hi, I have had my iphone 3g 16gb for around a year. I previously jailbroke with blackra1n but after a while it seemed slow so i restored to normal iphone. I since upgraded to 3.1.3 not knowing I would no longer ba able to jailbreak. I now want to jailbreak again, but seeing as theres no jailbreak for 3.1.3 (Or is there???) I would like to restore to 3.1.2 so I can jailbreak with blackra1n again as it was so simple first time around.
Can I do this?
If so, How?
Thanks in advance.
(My first post so sorry if i made any school boy errors with this post.)

Download the 3G 3.1.2 firmware ( google it ). Open iTunes, press hold down the shift ( or the command button on a mac ) and press the restore button in iTunes. Browse to the 3.1.2 firmware and you should be restored back to 3.1.2.
You will be able to jailbreak but not unlock.

HOW TO FIX 16xx ERRORS WHILE RESTORING
Once you get the error DONT DISCONNECT IPHONE OR CLOSE ITUNES.
1). You get the error. (in this case, 1601)
2). DON'T TURN OFF ITUNES. DON'T DISCONNECT IPHONE.
3). If the iPhone is still on, reboot/restart the phone. If it's off or unresponsive, then you'll need to kick it out of DFU mode next.
4). Press and hold the power and home button for some time to kick the phone out of DFU mode.
5). iTunes will finally detect it again.
6). Now try to simply restore it - click on the "Restore" button on iTunes, and voilą. It SHOULD work if everything went correctly.

will this work for iphone 2g
I was jailbroken and unlocked and had issues. I restored my iphone and it upgraded to 3.1.3. Now on my iphone's main screen, it shows the usb telling me to connect to itunes. How do I get past this. I don't use AT&T. I was unlocked using T-Mobile. But now, I'm back the factory settings. I have a general idea of how to jailbreak and unlock, just need to know how to get past that initial screen.

Depending on the model, while you might get back to a jailbroken state at this point you cannot unlock since you've been updated to the latest firmware. You won't be able to use the device to make calls until a new unlock is released.
