    Default iPhone 3G Stuck In Restore Mode

    Okay, so ever since I've gotten my phone, I've had intentions of and have actually tried jailbreaking it, but I've never actually gotten to because problems like this keep occurring.

    Earlier my computer wasn't recognizing the driver to my iPhone, so I put it into restore mode and was letting iTunes do its thing, but then I got that "The iPhone could not be restored. An error occurred," message.

    So I searched Google, found a thread on this forum and thought I was saved. I already have the 3.1.3 firmware for iPhone on this computer labeled iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18, but when I chose it in iTunes, I got a message saying "iPhone firmware not compatible."

    I really don't know why it could be saying this. I downloaded the firmware directly from Apple, so it should be compatible. I have the newest version of iTunes, but I don't know if that would affect this or not.

    I've tried using iReb countless times in the past to try and bypass these messages, but it's never worked for me.

    The only thing I can think of that might be the problem is that when I was clicking restore, iTunes asked me to install the new 4.0 OS, and I said yes. But since it never even went through with the restore, the 4.0 OS wouldn't even be on the iPhone, right?

    Not 100% sure what to tell you. Read here:

    That will tell you how to post a useful restore log for us to parse.

    Secondarily, while downloading the firmware direct from Apple should be 100% OK, if you're having trouble, check here for a direct download link as well:
