    Default To Olethros: HELP

    my iphone 1.1.4 was unlocked at the dawn of times with a tool i don't even remember, very possible was not from the dev team. anyway, it was working but wanted to upgrade to 3.0 with redsnow.

    however, i don't get to use redsnow because I can't even restore.
    downloaded 3.01 firmware, itunes 8.02 for windows, everything goes fine with shift-restoring (extract, install software) until the last step when it says itunes is verifying software, then i get an error msg.

    then i downloaded and tried 3.0 and even the original 1.1.4 but i get the same error.

    questions:
    1. should i leave the SIM in? I took it out before this exercise.
    2. should i be connected to the internet while itunes is doing its thing?
    3. should i let itunes restore from its server and not from my downloaded firmware? will this brick the phone? it says something about gonna install security measures prior.
    4. should i go ahead with redsnow regardless at this step?
    5. do i need to put the phone in DFU mode? the power-Home buttons? as it is now i just turned it off and itunes recognized it needs restoring.

    any other suggestions?
    thx

    1. Your iTunes is too old. You need iTunes 8.2 or higher to restore iPhone OS 3.0 or higher.
    2. SIM card in or out should not matter at all. Just leave it in.
    3. Your phone can always be downgraded, so you could just let iTunes restore the latest version. I recommend you restore to 3.1.2. Download link from: Firmware - The iPhone Wiki
    4. You can do the restore without DFU mode, both DFU and recovery mode will work.
