If you are on Mac, press the Alt key while you click restore, it will let you manually choose a firmware package. On windows I think it is CTRL.

Open iTunes, connect your iPhone. Then whilst holding down the CTRL key, click 'Restore'. This should bring up a window for you to browse and find your 3.0 IPSW file. Choose this and the iPhone will begin restoring using the new software.

Just make sure you sync before you begin, just so your contacts etc are backed up.

Yes, but he also said that he wants to upgrade his firmware WITHOUT using iTunes, so it doesn't matter what button combinations it is, because he doesn't want to use iTunes TO restore the firmware..

Well, he doesn't really have a choice in the matter -- to update your firmware, you HAVE to use iTunes.
