Help uninstalling ios4 and redsn0w
I have a 3G which I upgraded to ios 4 the other day.
I also installed the new redns0w jailbreak.
But after a day or so of use, I realise that ios4 is terrible beyond words. (painful slow and laggy to do anything, gets worse as the day goes on. constantly rebooting)
So what do I need to do to revert back to 3.1.3?
I know I can download the image, and shift click restore.
But do I need to first remove the jailbreak?
if so, how do I do that?
Or can I simply restore the 3.1.3 image, and that will remove the jailbreak too?

ok so I downloaded 3.1.2 (couldnt find 3.1.3).
shift clicked restore in itunes, selected the ipsw file.
after about 5 minutes I get a 1015 error in itunes.
tried a couple of times now, and still get the same error.
and my iphone is completely not working at all now.
help please anyone?

Well I successfully managed to restore ios4 so I got my iphone working again.
I think maybe its an issue with minimum baseband maybe, not compatible with 3.1.2?!
I might try a restore to 3.1.3, see if that works.
If not, then I guess Im stuck with ios 4.
No luck, restoring to 3.1.3 resulted in the same (1015) error.
Guess Im stuck with ios 4.

OP if you end up deciding to stay on 4 are you JBen? did you enable multitasking? I'm on 4 JBen on my 3G but didn't turn on multitasking in the JB and it's got a little lag going into folders but everything else is just like before. So maybe you have to redo 4 and your JB?
Well I tried reverting to itunes 9.1 late last night, but still got the same (1015) error.
So I went back to itunes 9.2, and restored ios 4.0. havent installed JB.
Interestingly today, so far my phone hasnt been so slow or laggy.
Maybe it was the JB, cant remember if I enabled multitasking.

iOS 4 on a JB'n 3G
very well said, however, i do utilize the multitasking feature and love it. it seems just as fast as any JB'n app if not better. agreed on staying light with the JB needs
my situation is looking grim in regards to getting the new device anytime soon, so this will get me by until my upgrade is available
