    ^I'm pretty sure he would've mentioned it...
    Anywayz download the Firmware for iPhone 3gs from here: iPod, iPhone and iPad Firmware Download it's under iPhone / iPod touch / iPad / Apple TV and it says iPhone 3G S (4.1/8B117)


    So download it then when its done go to itunes, plug in your phone and press shift restore on windows and on mac its option + restore
    then it asks you to select a file, so select the one you downloaded and wait for it to restore your phone
    I would recommend iTunes 9.2+ if you want to restore to 4.1
    Good luck!
    Please press the Thanks button if I ever helped, you'd be helping me

    For 4.1, you need to update to itunes 10 .

    Edit : If you don't need an unlock, then once you have restored to 4.1, you can go with Limera1n or GreenPoison.
    If you do need an unlock , you should restore to Custom firmware of 4.1 either created by Pwnage tools 4.1.2 or Snowbreeze 2.1.

    Always best never to assume. I wouldnt want to tell him to update to a regular 4.1 and he needs to be able to unlock.
