    Mmm, you cant restore to 3.1.3 because apple isnt signing 3.1.3 anymore so the only way I see to fix it is to put the iphone in recovery mode and then restore to 4.0.2 and then jailbreak/hacktivate with redsnow...

    Note:you would lose all your data when you restore though...

    He could still restore to 3.1.3 seeing it's a 3G iPhone, not a 3GS...

    Use DFU, then use my Tutorial. (In my Signature)
    (Jump the AptBackup steps)

    If it's at the activate screen, where it says slide for emergency. Use Redsn0w 0.9.4 and the 3.1.2 FW. It will hacktivate it.
