    Hey guys

    I want to downgrade and jailbreak my iphone 3g

    How to do it?
    Should I first downgrade normally and once I have my iphone running unjailbroken with 3.1.3 I jailbreak it?

    -can I feed the backup from 4.0 to 3.1.3?
    -which jailbreak software should I use to jailbreak 3.1.3? redsnow or pwnage tool?
    -should I downgrade to 3.1.3 or to another os?
    I'm a mac user.

    Thanks and cheers

    ok, i downloaded iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw from here: www iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750

    then i installed it on my iphone 3g and used RECBOOT to make it work.

    I now have a - by default unlocked - iphone 3g with OS 3.1.3 from the above link.

    I know wanted to jailbreak this with Pwnage Tool 3.1.5 but the tool cannot find the Firmware and if i select it myself it says it cannot be recognized.

    i noticed that the 3.1.3 firmware from the screenshots for pwnage tool had a different name than the one i downloaded and installed..?

    my questions:

    -should i even downgrade and jailbreak the os 3.1.3 or would 3.1.2 be a better choice?
    -why didn't it work with pwnage tool?
    -should i use redsn0w?

    thanks a lot!

    Why would downgrade the iPhone 4.0 to 3.1.3?
    You also can jailbreak the iPhone 4.0 with PwnageTool 4.0, here is the tutorial I found: Jailbreak and Unlock iPhone 3GS for iOS 4 on Mac | iPhone Column

    If you enable multitasking and background images it does ya. Try without those.

    To JB 3.1.3, use spirit.....
