    You will have to track down a custom 3.1 ipsw from the internet to download and use that to restore to. Honestly... upgrading from 3.0 to 3.1 is worthless. I'd wait until they come out with a firmware with some actual feature improvements.

    Thanks for the reply . What about if i want to upgrade to 3.1.2 will i need to make the upgrade to 3.1 then to 3.1.2 or i can i jump straight to 3.1.2 ?

    And what is the best site to download the custome firmware from ?

    You'll be able to go straight to 3.1.2 if you are set on doing it. Personally, if I depended on an unlock to use my phone I would never trust an ipsw I downloaded from the net. If you get the wrong thing, such as an unmodified 3.1 ipsw, you are toast. You should be able to find someone who has a Mac, friend, coworker, something....or wait for the Windows version, which I would think won't be that much longer. Like Poseidon said, there's nothing that earth-shattering in 3.1.

    PS: I think some people think the person with the borrowed Mac has to have an iDevice/iTunes....they don't. If all they are doing is making the ipsw for you PwnageTool and the correct ipsw will suffice, then you can install it to your phone using your own machine.
