    Hi my hard drive crashed and i lost my iphone back up files.

    Does anyone know if i can still restore my iphone in any other way.
    it would be helpful even if you could direct me on the tools.

    i also have a question?

    Would it be possible to shift restore iphone os 3.1.3(my current os) without Apple forcing an upgrade...i just need to know? As last time i did something like this i ended up upgrading my OS and base band ending up with an ipod in place of a iphone.

    Please help!!!!!

    You won't be able to restore to 3.1.3 without SHSH files. Go here: The Firmware Umbrella download tiny umbrella and see if you can save your SHSH for your device under advanced for 3.1.3, 4.0 or 4.0.1. If it comes back no for all of those if you try and restore you will be forced to update to 4.0.2 which cannot be jailbroken.

    You can try my guide out here. 3002 error can be a bit tricky, try the troubleshooting at the bottom of my guide, if all else fails sometimes using a different computer does the trick.
