    Cool. Thanks

    I went to upgrade and it gave me an error (I believe it was 3014 or something like that). What do I do?

    Did you edit your hosts file ? You must let apple verify your iphone.
    Put iphone into recovery mode and hit restore again.

    You're speaking a different language to me . Could you tell me what host files are and how do I put my phone into recovery mode?

    Have you ever edited your hosts file ? If not, that is fine
    Recovery mode : Turn it off , while holding the home button , plug your iphone cable into pc until Itunes Cables Logo appears, this is recovery mode.

    Once your iphone is in recovey mode, Itunes will detect and you can restore.

    No hit restore , not upgrade.

    If this still doesn't work, go download the 3g 4.1 ipsw from here :
    iClarified - iPhone - Where To Download iPhone Firmware Files From
    and then press the Shift key on your keyboard + Restore in Itunes and browse to 4.1 ipsw which you just downloaded.

    Is your computer connected to the internet ? Reboot your pc again and do the restore again.

    Any luck ?
