    What version of firmware do you have? HOLD the shift key and hit restore button. A browser window should pop up. Select your version of firmware .ipsw file and it should restore to that version. if you don't have the file you can find it in the download section of MMI.

    Hope it helps!

    Try what i said. Plug into itunes. HOLD the shift key and hit restore. A browser pops up and select 1.1.1 .ipsw file. it should update to the firmware version.

    do you mean i type that in the file name space? Cuz that is not one of the options when the window opens, it;s just folders like my pictures and acrobat, and stuff like that?? Do I type that in the file space... 1.1.1 .ipsw file?

    okay download this file from here:

    http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=1355

    Save it somewhere you know, desktop?

    Do the steps from earlier and goto to this file. It will restore to 1.1.1 firmware.

    No, I have yahoo, I tried to install that one time, and not sure what happened, but, it wouldn't work?? ugh! Damn it! I have like all the files saved in my pc, that I had before, like carnaval, lots of wallpapers, and customize??? Oh! Crap...ok, trying not to cry here...

    This one really nice guy from New York helped me do all that at the very beginning, and he told me to keep his number in case I ever needed help in anything, but, of course, his number was on that phone!
