    iPhone2,1_4.0.1_8A306_Restore is the name of my firmware. I was -pretty- sure that this is the one I needed for my 3G..Well iTunes told me it was the wrong firmware or something to that extent. I dunno if I definitely got the wrong firmware but I'm gonna put it into recovery mode and see if it works then. If not then maybe a shift+update?

    ...some website. I'd used it before. The only reason I dl'd it that way was because I didn't have a computer I got it directly on my phone and copied it to my PC. If I can't get it tonight I'm gonna take my netbook with me tomorrow and update through iTunes directly. I just have dial up at home and can't download 400 megs faster than waiting till tomorrow morning
