    Did it upgrade you to 3.1.3 and now it won't let you go back to 3.1.2?

    Settings, General, Scrool to bottom Reset, Then pick and chose what you want.

    I think I found a solution, but its in French.

    Here it is, tu fait la mise ŕ jour avec la version 3.01 et quand cela arrive a la fin il te donne erreur 1005 mais ne tiens pas compte de cela. tu le jailbreack avec raedsnow 08 en utilisant la version 3.1 et c'est ok.

    Did you look here?

    custom firmware can be had here.
    To restore to a custom firmware you need to hold shift then click restore, then choose the file you just downloaded.

    yup i do the same thing, i hold shift and click restore, then i choose my ispw, it tells me that all my data will be deleted and the iphone is gonna be restore to the factory settings, i click ok to that, so then it says "verifiying the software to apple or something like that, and the boom!!! i get a pop up sayin “The iPhoneiPhonecould not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build.”

    Its because apple is no longer signing 3.1.2 so it is not possible to restore to 3.1.2 you have to go to the newest unless you have SHSH backed up.

    open up:
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X)
    and add the following entry to the bottom of the file then save the file:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    You may have to open it as admin to edit it and put the line of code at the bottom.

    Put your phone into DFU mode, not restore mode, then hook your phone up and install custom firmware or official 3.1.2 IPSW.
