    Ok, so I had a jailbreaking and T-Mobile unlocked iPhone 3G running 3.0. I wanted the 3.1.3 update so I updated my iPhone 3G to 3.1.3 via Shift+Restore. So it turns out, my baseband got updated to 5.12.01 and my bootloader is 6.2 (I don't know if thats relevant) and I'm stuck with the emergency screen. Apparently, I can jailbreak+unlock the iPhone with 4.0 easily following these instructions:

    "Update through iTunes (official update)
    Download redsn0w 0.9.5 b5-5
    Download an IPSW
    Run redsn0w
    Install ultrasn0w

    The fix for the slow 4.0 on 3G is to disable background image and multitasking (you will be prompted to enable/disable this when your run redsn0w)"

    This sounds like its easy to do, except, how do I get out of the emergency mode to update to 4.0? I need to know how to bypass the emergency mode and be able to do it. Can someone help please? This is urgent.

    Put the phone in DFU mode then itunes will prompt for restore.
