    Default 2.2.1 to 3.0 update 3G help... stupid itunes times out on update...
    can anyone help me with this problem?

    im trying to update my 3G from 2.2.1 to 3.0 I have tried to use itunes to download fw but it times out and i lose any data ive managed to download. so, i use direct links for the fw but instead of getting the 3.0 ispw file, i get a zip file which when unziped contains many folders with multiple files inside. neither itunes nor redsn0w will recognize them when i try to udate. i have tried multiple links from multiple sites and the same thing everytime. i run windows xp. thanks in advance ppl!

    Use the iTunes legit version of the 3.0 software upgrade.... after it updates your iPhone, then jailbreak.

    Yeh, i no hey! Think optus are slack with their speeds at times in Oz. Finaly figured it out though! The .zip file can be changed to .ipsw file by going into folder options and unchecking one of the options... Itunes then recognises it as an update if u hold shift, select it and click update... Cheers guys for yer help! Yay now running jailbroken 3.0
