    Just Update Your Software To 3.0 And Then Proceed To Do A Jailbreak And Unlock Via The Dev Team...***do Not Update Without Downloading The Custom Ipsw Files From The Dev Team**** Because If You Just Update It Through Itunes It Will Download The 3.1 Version Which Cannot Be Unlocked

    Civik - don't you understand that he can't upgrade to 3.0? APPLE stopped signing the files - so when he goes to restore through iTunes to his downloaded 3.0 ipsw, it will not fully install. Throughout the upgrade process, iTunes sends a ping out to Apple's servers asking them if they'll sign the files, i.e. 'authenticating' them.

    Apple has stoppe signing EVERY FIRMWARE other than their current 3.1.2. So while he's restoring, iTunes will sen outthise pings, Apple will NOT sign it, the installation will fail, and he'll have a phone stuck in emergency mode.

    Then, to get it working, he would have to officially upgrade to 3.1.2 through iTunes, and break his ability to unlock, maybe forever.

    I'm not making this **** up man. Do some research.

    Tmartz, I think I can help.

    FIRST, go into Cydia and download a package called "AptBackup".

    Then, open the program, read the paragraph, and then click "Backup".

    Now, sync your iPhone to iTunes. Make sure that iTunes creates a backup while it's syncing.

    Then PM me. I'll see what I can do about helping.

    Yesterday while I was on the forum I noticed someone posted links to I beleive custom firmware try to find the thread I beleive the poster was toothemobile. Post a question to ensure they are custom files and I beleive the are fragmented so you will have to ask what prog to use to put them back together. If you don't find help there PM me.
