    Default 2.2 -> 3.0
    Hello,

    Sorry about this question. I have searched in the forums and Google, but all the answers point out to previous versions. I am running a 3G with 2.2 firmware and iTunes 8.2. When I try to upgrade to 3.0, I get the error in iTunes saying the SIM card is not compatible with your iPhone. I do the airplane mode thing, and restart the phone. Then iTunes only gives me the option to upgrade to 2.2.1. Do I have to go through 2 jb's and 2 unlocks to get 3.0?

    I know there is a tutorial in the news forums, but this has not been useful to me as I cannot upgrade to 3.0 from iTunes. FYI, my 3G iPhone is unlocked and jailbroken (I use T-mobile).

    Thank you.

    In Itunes, go to Help/Check for Updates. It should find the new 3.0 update and prompt you to download and install it.

    I would say place the phone in Airplane mode, then update to 2.2.1. Then, update to 3.0. Then run redsn0w, which Jailbreaks it, then download Ultrasn0w from Cydia. The source is repo666.ultrsn0w.com.

    Hope it helps!
