    Default Restore w/out internet possible?
    Phone (3g) froze up while using MyWi today and doesnt want to boot. Stuck at work with limited access to internet. Any trick to restore (I'm pulling an all nighter at work today and want to get some Age of Conan on ).

    Not unless you already have the firmware needed to restore with downloaded.

    What would that process be for future reference? I had the firmware on the computer from the previous install.

    Just hold shift (Windows) or Option (Mac) and click restore and select your FW.
    No problem for 2G or 3G iPhones.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    I couldnt get an option to restore without being hooked up to the net (an error message would pop up). As soon as it connected I was able to shift/select the firmware I wanted to use.
