My friend got his phone stolen. He ended up getting it back from a cab driver but it is DISABLED! I have found out that I can restore it with itunes but it says to 3.1.3 and then it would be locked. How can i restore it to 3.1.2? He didnt have it unnlocked/jailbroken and its an older model 2g 8gb. Thank you for your replies
Can anyone help out on my situation? I swear that this is not a stolen phone!! I know that all too often this problem comes up and it is a stolen phone but that is not the case here. I am trying to help out a friend in need. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Thank you cpjr, your response is greatly appreciate. I am new at this but learning fast. Where do i get 3.1.2? Just google and download? Also, once the file is on my computer the itunes will recognize this when i hold shift and restore?

OK well im really close now but I have encountered new problems. When i DL the firmware and extract files my pc tells me that there is a problem preventing me from encrypting files. It stil DL but now when i go to open the restore folder with itunes open there isnt anything there. Also, i called my friend to verify what OS he was on and he says he thinks the newest but now sure! It is 1st gen 8gb. Will this matter? Am i going to have to try and restore with every firmware til I find the right one?
