Fix my tethering for $15 - installed 3.1.3 by mistake - can't fix
I will paypal $15 to anyone who can help me fix my tethering. The only way I can go on the web at work is via my netbook + iPhone tethering. Me paying you will be on the honor system but I think you can trust me. I was an alter boy.
iPhone 3G, 16gb, AT&T
A few months back I only wanted to tether. So I followed the blackra1n instructions and viola - tethering. I assume I just jailbroke it. Maybe I unlocked it. Honestly dont remember. It took 10 minutes, allowed me to tether and I was done with it.
a few weeks ago my phone needed a restore. not thinking, i plugged it in and ended up screwing myself. 3.1.3 was installed.
since then i have spent hours trying to fix this. i dont really understand this stuff, i just find instructions and try doing it.
i did some type of attempt at fixing using a different program. i think it was snowbreeze. i installed it on my PC, the software created a custom ipsw file, i ran it, pointed to the file but iTunes would not allow me to install it for some reason.
So I am at square 1.
I just need to be able to tether.

So uninstall iTunes from my machine, install an older version of iTunes (which i assume i still have in a download folder on my PC), and then retry jailbreaking with Spirit?
I assume I point to 3.1.2 when restoring my iPhone?
And jailbreaking with allow me to tether on ATT?

If you stay on 3.1.3 and want to jailbreak with Spirit, you don't need to worry about downgrading your iTunes. Just go to Spirit and then install MyWi ( it does have a cost associated with it ).
If you want to downgrade to 3.1.2 you'll need to downgrade your iTunes ( but this gets more complicated than using Spirit ).
