    I recently jailbroke and unlocked an iPhone 3G for my friend. I went through the whole process fine untill I gave him the phone. When he plugged it in his computer he receives the "iPhone needs to restore message". How can he bypass this in order to sync his songs and photos? The software version that the iPhone is running is 3.1.3. If he restore will he loose his unlock? Thanks replies appreciated!

    If you restore, it will put it back to factory and lose the jailbreak and unlock. I thought 3.1.3 wasn't unlockable?

    I believe the 3G can be unlocked. Not 3Gs.

    Wrong. I'm running a 3G[s] with the old bootrom. I'm jailbroken and unlocked with ultrasn0w.

    Your phone just has to meet the criteria, AND you have to know what the fu** you're doing.

    As far as the OP's problems, he may have to update, BUT if his iPhone is still working, he may want to wait until 4.0 is officially released in a few days, and then wait until the jailbreak and unlock is released. 4.0 comes out on 06/24, and the jailbreak and unlock has been promised to be released before the end of June.

    It might make sense for him to just wait a few days.

    And if the 3G is on the 05.12 baseband, IF ITS THE OLDER 3G, it can be downgraded with fuzzyband from Cydia.

    I know, because I've done it on mine. It auto-downgrades you to the 04.26 baseband so that you can unlock with ultrasn0w.

    And for the 3G[s] being jailbroken and unlocked, you need to have the old bootrom, and an old baseband. Either 04.26 (ultrasn0w) or 05.11 (blacksn0w). When you upgrade to 3.1.3, you have to do it via a custom firmware from either PwnageTool (Mac) or sn0wbreeze (PC).

    Point is, it CAN be done.
