    I sold my 3G and ran an Erase all content, which completed after 2 hours but then locked up after reboot.

    I tried a restore with itunes to jailbreak it again but itunes will NOT restore it unless I choose to update to 3.0....

    Is there ANY way around this???

    Thanks in advance!

    Crap....I follow the directions in video but when I open Quickpwn 2.2.5 it wants to browse for current file which it says is 1,2_3.0, which I select but then it says it doesn't support that version of firmware....and selecting the older firmware gives error that it doesnt update firmware, only jailbreaks current..

    CRAP!!!
