    My daughter has a 3G (not a 3Gs) with 3.0 firmware and I'd like to upgrade it to 3.1.2 to get the remote lock feature in "Find My iPhone" on MobileMe . . . I DO NOT want to upgrade it to 3.1.3 since we may be selling it at some point in the near future and I want to preserve the JB and unlock capability.

    So, is this possible? I've done searches but all be buzz is about DOWNGRADING (or whatever it's called) to 3.1.2, not what I need.

    Thank you.

    u can only upgrade/downgrade to 3.1.2 if u have a ecid in cydia for it (go to cydia if u see at the top of the home page "This device has SHSHs for OS: (OS list, if there is 3.1.2 then u can)"

    A 3G does not require SHSH files via Cydia. You should be able to find a copy of the firmware and use shift+restore or command+restore to restore the firmware to the 3G.

    Yup. SHSH/ECID are 3G[s] specific. One of the new 'measures' Apple took upon release to try to hinder jailbreaking.

    Hey kgvickers, were you able to get this upgrade to work properly? I am in the exact same boat, looking to upgrade from 3.0 to 3.1.2 on a 3G phone. My phone is currently unlocked and jailbroken and I want it to remain that way so I haven't upgraded yet. Please let us know if you were able to successfully do this and keep the JB and unlock or what issues you ran into. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, haven't gotten around to this yet. Her phone is not, and will not be JB.
