    Your info says you have a 3GS on 3.0.1 so my advice is based on that.

    Your phone can use custom firmwares so you can use pwnagetool to make one of those and restore to that.

    Here's a guide: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool [Mac]

    When it asks if you're already pwned, click 'yes' as it is just asking if you're jailbroken.

    You can also make a custom 3.0.1 firmware but I don't see a reason to.

    you can restore still just doo this:


    Shift-Click(if on windows) and then locate your firmware. It will restore with that firmware and not 3.1.3

    Not with a 3GS...

    You will have to locate a custom pwnage firmware and restore to that.
