    at this point, are you in DFU mode? i ended up disconnecting from iTunes then reconnecting it to iTunes. iTunes then picked up my iPhone in DFU mode and gave me the option to restore. but my phone WAS off. can you hold the power button down and force it to shut down?

    try holding the power button and the home button down at same time. hold for like 10 seconds or until it powers off

    You have to download a 3.0 .ipsw

    A simple google search for iPhone 3.0 ipsw 3GS should bring it up. Just make sure you download the file for the 3GS, not the 3G or 1st gen iPhone.

    The filename has 2,1 in it, if it has that, it's right.

    You will use redsn0w version 0.8 and when you launch it, it will ask you to navigate to your version of firmware, that's where you located the 3.0 ipsw you had to download.

    After that, you're done.

    (If you can't find the 3.0 ipsw for some reason, let me know in this thread and I'll upload it to my mobileme public disk and PM you a link.

    That goes for anyone else as well. If you need an ipsw or anything, just post, either me or another member can either send a link or upload the file.
