Thread: Iphone 3g 4.0 Help

hey i've got an iphone 3g with baseband 05.13.04 here, How do i go about preserving the baseband (if possible) and upgrade it to 4.2.1?
Also Itunes wants to upgrade the phone to 4.2, is there a reason as to why itunes is not suggesting 4.2.1?

You can do so by creating a custom firmware with sn0wbreeze 2.2. iTunes for some reason says it's 4.2 but the phone upgrades to 4.2.1. Is there a reason why you're wanting to upgrade? The iPhone 3G is most optimal on 3.1.x. If you need to upgrade for app compatibility, I highly suggest while creating your custom fw to restore to, to disable multitasking and wallpaper. If those are enabled, your device will be very slow.

There is a link to a guide. If you don't have an official SIM to activate the phone with, you'll need to select the "activate" box while creating your custom fw. The details are in the guide.
