    hey guys, a buddy of mine is a dev and he added my phone to his account so i could see the beta, but now i would usually upgrade to the beta, check it out and then downgrade, but for some reason, itunes just sit at waiting for ipod and does nothing when trying to restore, i am in dfu mode.

    yeah, i do.

    man, the furtherst i can get is to a psod.

    had a great idea and tried to reg restore to an eariler beta, like 1 or 2 and then downgrade from that, so far it's been successful, i think as long as i don't go to psod, i can get back to 2.2.1.

    You can't go back to 2.x once you upgrade to 3.x (with a 3G iPhone anyway) because you can not downgrade the baseband and 3.x basebands do not talk to 2.x FW's.

    1st gen iphone and iPods 1&2 Gen are fine, you can always go back to 2.x, but, a 3G iPhone not so much. Your stuck.

    If you have a 5.8 BB bootloader, then your in luck, but they are rare.
