This is turning into a bit of a farce.

Try placing it in the directory that iTunes uses to store these downloads, I'm not sure where that is on a PC so hopefully one of the kind PC users on here will be able to guide you to it.

Failing that, are you near an Apple store?

aren't 02 support calls free?

Go to restore iphone, then press and hold shift while you press restore.
You will then be able to choose the firmware file

Not near an Apple store but I will look for the directory, o2 support not being all that useful at the moment, they say its something Apple will need to sort out rather than them.

If this works, top tip Kingsley

Isn't this what she was already doing? How else would she use your file :)

Isn't your jailbroken already? In that case you can tether already

no I don't wanna risk bricking something I spent so much on.

I think the cons outweigh the pros of jailbreak if you are on o2

GodstoneEagle 15-08-2008 04:17 PM

but I would like tether

Don't think they are likely to be bricked, all i've read is that on o2 3g iphones they signal goes shit when you jailbreak it via Windows (should be OK via a Mac..) but you can always restore to your original firmware.

I'm going to wait for a month or two before doing it I think.

Dave 15-08-2008 04:46 PM

How would the machine used to break it impact the 3G signal? How would that work?

And godders..it is near on impossible to brick an iphone, there is nearly always a way back.

With the exception of Monkeyball my app list entirely

+ Google Reader but thats a web app so doesn't count

eddieskyclad 15-08-2008 08:23 PM

I bought the 16gb version this morning... bit of an impulse purchase really and I'm not wholly sure what I've let myself in for.

Should be interesting though :p
