    Default Firmware 3.0 for i phone 3G Please Help

    Heah one and all


    I have been trying to locate the correct firmware file 3.0 and
    every time I download and unzip I have bunch of files but nothing
    with ipsw and I am really confused.

    I have reading some of the post but that is even more confusing
    and so much that is un related to what I am going through

    I have tried some the links that were provided. they unzipped again without
    ipsw.

    Does anyone know where to get the correct file for 3.0 iphone firmware
    or am I doing something in correctly?

    It would be so helpful

    I upgraded my phone 8.2 now it's telling me that 3.01 is available,
    but according to my phone even after plugging it in and upgrading to 3.0 this through i tunes.
    I am still at 2.2.25G7 don't understand that either.

    not sure If I should go with the 3.01.

    Please very confused and need assistance

    In Love and Light

    Same isssue here - I am trying to jailbreak my iphone and had downloaded 3. 0 firmware. However, it is a .zip file - not .ipsw. I had tried to unzip it - but all I got is several files. In the meantime iTunes isn't recognizing either .zip nor unzipped files as a valid firmware file (( Any suggestions?

    The file probably ends ...ipsw.zip
    Just delete .zip and you are set. This is happening on Macs

    tried to re-name it - was able to remove .zip extension on the firmware file - but iTunes still doesn't recognizing it as a valid firmware
    file - it just doesn't see it when I try to point to it during Restore process.

    Can I just use RedSnow without restoring my 3G - I'm still at version 3.0(7A341) - isn't that the version we are trying to restore iPhone to?

    yes you can redsnow your current FW 3.0, but you might be better served if you also learned how to download firmware successfully

    try following these tutorials

    but of course I'd like to figure out how to restore iPhone to the previous version.

    I did download firmware file from iClarified - and I do have Windows 7 (can that be a problem?). Anybody else needed to change extension of the file? Can it be that the problem is in my WinRar who automatically "labeled" file as a .zip file?

    could be the reason, can you set unrar to not do?

    Why are you posting about your 3G in the 2G section?

    for the .zip issue, download the firmware files from mozilla firefox.
