    Default Shift restore not working on iTunes

    I am trying to upgrage my 2G phone to 3.1.2 using a custom firmware.
    But the shift/restore does not allow me to select ipsw file.

    I have tried
    1. running itunes administrator
    2. "%ProgramFiles%\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1
    3. 1 and 2
    4. repair itunes

    Any other solutions ?

    This user is on a windows machine, so it is shift-restore

    You need to hold down shift and click on the restore button, you will be given an option to browse for the IPSW

    Just paste your Custom IPSW in the iTunes folder in C:\Users\<UserName>\Appdata\Roaming\Apple Computers\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates

    And then click restore!

    This won't work, you must at least rename the IPSW to remove the _Custom, even then, I am unsure if it will work.

    This setting (carrier-testing) has nothing to do with getting shift-restore working.

    What Windows OS are you running? Do you get the popup open/save dialog box to allow you to select the IPSW?
    Can you post a screen-capture showing where you get stuck?

    You folks are focusing on the wrong issues, This problem with Shift + Restore(click) not working its because of Itunes v10. Apple has desable this option to restore from custom IOS or Older IOS. Apple wants you to always used there servers for IOS restore and i been working and searching for imput for 6 Hours,23 Minutes so far with no luck. I know deleting Itunes 10 and downgrading its posible and will work, its just that i would have to do so much backing up of all my contents that im hoping i get some imput with a solution without downgrading ITunes 1o to 9.2.

    Apple has become the most hated company i had to ever in my life deal with. Its not like getting these products for free. Why is it that if i buy something with my hard earn money, i can't used it as i please. My whole reason for a jailbroken/unlock iphone is that i used and love Google voice and since apple took my money and less then 24hours later pull and shut down google voice app down. What the hell is wrong with Google Voice that apple won't allow to be run on the iphone? its not a free way of making phone calls cause you still need a working number to receive the calls. So freaking stupid, isee nothing wrong with GV, nor do i see anything that would violate any terms of service. They just hate anyone who compites with them. Can you say Manopolism!. And the unlock is when a'm outside the USA i buy prepay GSM service and used it while im over sea's, No way i'm paying $3.99 to $6.49 a minute on international service charges. Apple can kiss MY (o), cause instead of working on better working products they spend more time on how to make it imposible for anyone to used there products freely.I don't understand why the FCC doesn't step in and make it a law not to lock phones, Just like Europe. We paying for the devices, why can't we use them as we please.

    Its like me goingout to buy a car but one of the polocies would be that you can only used BP Fuel, and if you put any other fuel you'll loose the Warrenty.

    It works fine on mine, Apple has not disabled this feature in itunes 10.
