    Ok I downloaded the iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore .ZIP file and followed the directions to downgrade, but when it comes time to find the 3.1.3 OS like it tells me too after putting my phone in DFU mode I CANNOT FIND THE iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw, I unzip the file to my Desktop but its just a bunch of other crap.

    So why wont the damn 3.1.3.ipsw file show up for me?... How can I downgrade if that file wont show up??? Please Help..

    I need this damn 4.0 OS off my 3G asap, its slow as snail ****.

    P.S. Im new to all this stuff so I dont know all the fancy words you do

    Don't unzip, just rename the .zip to .ipsw, then it will convert into cube like form. That is your 3.1.3 ipsw firmware.

    You will encounter error 1015, use tiny umbrella to kick out of recovery loop.

    Alternate Method.
    Put your Iphone into recovery mode.
    To downgrade, restore to a a custom firmware of 3.1.3 , for pc : Snowbreeze 1.5.2,
    No error will be encountered.

    I renamed it, but its not changing over or anything, still looks like a .zip file, and dont show up when I try to upload through iTunes... my heads going to explode.

    Use Firefox to download, it should be in .ipsw format. I don't see any reason why you could not change the extension.
