Welcome to MMi,
iTunes stopped signing firmware 3.1.2 or lower for the 3Gs phones, so no joy, sorry.

Thank you glad to be a member ,but shouldnt the shift restore still let me look for it or did they completely remove that feature from itunes

Is your shift key working? Or was it the option key. I cant remember

Windows/shift, Mac/option. But that isn't the issue. It's trying to install OS 3.1.2 or lower on a 3Gs.

no the thing i was wondering about was that itunes wont let me search for any firmware if i try shift restore it just trys to download the firmware from apple it will not let me browse for my own

That's what I had posted in my first response, iTunes will not allow you to choose any other firmware other than 3.1.3.

I know you have said it won't let me install anything other than 3.1.3 but if I had an ispw on my desktop shouldn't I still be able to hold shift and restore and browse for it ?
