    Default 2G 8Gb ipaperweight

    I've read through just about everything on here, and now i'm more lost than ever. Just bought a second hand unlocked iphone, put my Orange PAYG sim in, and away I went. Then downloaded itunes, to put some mp3s on. Whilst connecting, and playing 3 Poker tourneys, and watching a film, a popup appeared, so I clicked on it. Yes, i'm a tool. It was a software upgrade, and, of course, my phone is now bricked. Tried a restore, but it tells me I have the wrong sim (obviously), but it also has no firmware listed. What do I need to do?
    I've downloaded Pwnage, winpwn, Ziphone, but none of them seem to include a ipsw restore file. I get .img3 files, .dmg files, the bin files, etc, but no restore file. Even downloaded from the list of restore files. What am I doing wrong? Have I ******* it altogether, as I never made my own backup? I'm just lost now. Can't even work out which forum this post should be on.
    2 mp3s played, 1 text sent, 200 spent. Great value.
    Please please give me some guidance, or even which tutorial I should be following.

    If you upgraded you probably upgraded to 3.0.1 firmware.
    redsn0w should be able to help.

    go here iClarified - iPhone - How to Select an iPhone Unlock/Jailbreak Tutorial

    this will get you started follow the path for what you want to do and the operating system and follow the directions you should be good to go.

    There will be links to download all needed files

    Sorry to be a pain guys. I've downloaded Redsnow and the other files from the link, unzipped them, and i've got the same problem. The file - iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
    isn't there. So I have nothing to select at the first step? Am I being really dumb?

    Have you made sure the IPSW your downloading doesn't have a .zip extension? if you have itunes installed you should see the ipsw on the desktop looking like this


    If it doesn't just rename & remove the .zip extension
