    check to see if it's old bootrom or not. Quick google will find you the answer. If it is, use a custom bootrom made by pwnage tool not sn0wbreeze. If you don't have a mac, another quick google search will land you one but you have to have the old bootrom to use it. Put phone in DFU mode and shift click and choose the ipsw that you just downloaded

    I'm using iTunes 9.0 and I have been able to use custom firmware on 3Gs old bootrom.
    If you have your SHSH file saved then restore pointing to saurik's server. You should be fine. Search for tutorial

    My bad I was thinking to 3.1.2.

    Would it be the same process no matter what firmware you are on?
    Especially if his SHSH file was saved?
