View Full Version : Iphone 3g Updating

Hi all,

Just a quick question on updating an iphone.

I have downloaded and updated my iphone 3g and now i am wanting to updated my sisters but i dont want to have to download the update again.

I chose to download the upgrade only as i thought i would be able to update both this way but i am unable to work out how to do this.

Any assistance would be helpful.

Stick your sister's iPhone into your computer. Enter passcode if necessary to unlock the screen.

Then click alt/option (shift on a PC) Restore or Upgrade (whatever you want to do) and point it to ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates/iPhone1,2_3.0.1_7A400_Restore.ipsw (this is for iPhone 3G, it'll be 1,1 for 2G and 2,1 for 3GS).
