    I never thought it would come to this point but I guess! Like when the Iphone first came out I got it for like 3 months and I saw how much I didn't like it but my neighbor really liked it. He bought the iphone 3g back when it came out and he transferred to T-Mobile. I use to be in tune with the custom firmware and all the other iphone crap. A week ago my neighbor said that he really wants to get some of the newer apps and they require the new software so I took it upon myself once again to find a good custom firmware however I seem to be unable to find a nice custom firmware for the iphone 3g - any of you that happen to have someone in your family with the I device can point me in the right direction "I" would really appreciate it.

    His baseband is really old but it works so I would really rather not touch it but if need be I can update it - I just need some pointers where I can find the custom firmwares.

    iPhone 3G can't load iOS5+. hardware isn't supported. 3GS, 4 amd 4S are supported, although some 3GS owners complain it is slow on their phones. Nothing you can really do. In fact, I believe the 3G can only go as high as iOS 4.2.1.

    Yea that seems to be the last version on of the firmware the point is I am not really sure where to grab the activated custom firmware - I believe that my neighbor does not have an AT&T sim card so I will not be able to activate the phone once the custom firmware is applied. Well if you know where to get it from that's great if not I will keep searching.

    By the way this is another reason why I hate the I-crap, because it is just a ton of work to get these custom things on your phone - and don't get me started with itunes (icrap) software problems which I have seen my friends encounter!!!

    And it already sucks at running iOS 4. A lot of 3G users prefer running iOS 3 because of slowdowns on iOS 4. The hardware just isn't capable enough.

    It has been a while since I have used the 3G, and I don't believe they can use the current exploits found in Redsn0w and it is highly unlikely he ever used Tinyumbrella to save a stock or stitched ipsw (basically a rom).

    I don't have an old 3G to even look to see what is needed. Best thing to do is go onto the macrumors forum and ask. Someone on there will def know what to do.

    As for your last comment, I got tired of playing cat and mouse with Apple regarding the jailbreaks. If you screw something up you are editing on the iPhone, after Apple closes the OS exploit you are currently using, like say any of the boot files, you are screwed and have to do a full restore. This means if no exploits have been found for the new OS, you aRe stuck back to stock. Hence, my reason for owning a Skyrocket now! iTunes can be tamed, but it takes a while to understand it and it always helps to be using a Mac and iTunes togther.
