Thread: how to revirginize 3g (dead battery), can i unlock after that?

    Default how to revirginize 3g (dead battery), can i unlock after that?
    i need to revirginize my iphone 3g because its battery is nearly dead.
    purchased in dec 08.
    now i have firmware version 3.0 installed (phone is unlocked).

    is there an authoritative revirginize guide?
    can i revirginize to such firmware version so that i can unlock it once again after they give it to me with changed battery (assuming of course that they will not upgrade the software to 3.1.3 before returning the changed battery phone)?

    thank you!

    you can install any official firmware you choose and that will "revirginize" the phone

    in iTunes just press shift+restore (pc) or option+restore (mac) and point it at the firmware you download...as ling as they don't update you to 3.1.3 then you will be able to re-jailbreak and unlock when you get the phone back
