    Depending on that firmware you have. If you have 3.0, I Highly recommend redsn0w.

    well, I would use redsn0w as well. Though I just discovered that, on my 3gs, redsn0w causes battery drain. But it might be an individual issue, so you probably should go with redsn0w.

    And don't forget to capture your iBEC and iBSS! you will need them to update to 3.1! and - I guess you know that, but I'll say it nonetheless - remember to NEVER update to anything above 3.0.1 when itunes ask you to!

    Yes you need to get the iBEC & iBSS files unless you want to stay on 3.0.1 forever or lose your jailbreak forever.

    As for your original question - use redsn0w. the ipsw files are in the "icommunity" link on the dev team page in the right sidebar.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Any easier way to get it without restoring?

    no, the whole point of the files is that they only appear during a restore.

    oh, and you should better lose your fear of restores right now, it's highly likely you will restore a couple of times in your iphone life ;-)

    what if it is at 3.0.1 already?
