Default iPhone Unlocking/Jailbreaking help?!

Ok so I will admit I am not good at iphone unlocking.

That being said here is my issue:

I have a 3G iphone with ios 3.2.3 I wanted to unlock for t-mobile.

I downloaded cydia to the phone and tried to install blackra1n. as soon as I restarted the phone it just froze at the silver apple.

I had to put the phone into restore mode to get it to stop going to the silver apple.

Is there a way to restore the phone without updating to 4.1?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Use jailbreakme.com at your own peril. And by that I mean don't use it.

If I remember right, you should be able to find a 3.x.x restore ISPW floating around somewhere that will cause your phone to just store to that firmware, I'm not at home atm I'll see if I have the file anywhere when I get back from class. Or have you synced it at all or did you get the phone and immediately go for the jailbreak? When it syncs it creates a backup, and there should be various backups listed in itunes with version numbers and dates, again just goin off the top of my head I'll come back and edit when I get home.

Alright I got it reverted and am jailbreaking it now (I think the firmware I had downloaded was bad or maybe for a 3gs). What is the best form of: yellowsn0w, blackra1n etc for the actually carrier unlock? Blackra1n has stranded me twice now.

yeah, just stick the Tmo sim in and you should be ok. Also you have to go to the Tmo website and find the info for the internet to work and make sure you have 3g turned off when you put the sim card in.

So I was looking everywhere for answers on google and finally found a forum that says that once it starts up you just hit reset all settings and it works. Well, it did.

Thanks again to all! Glad I got to spend all morning researching how to unlock a phone for someone else

Harsh words. haha. So which jailbreak method did you end up using after you did the restore? jailbreakme.com? haha. It should work on your iOS3.x.x

Jailbreakme.com + cydia + ultrasn0w is the fastest and easiest way to unlock it. I've done it for 5 iphones this past month.

^I was actually going to ask you but the thing pissed me off so I just put it in a drawer. I was using jailbreakme.com to jailbreak and yellowsn0w, blackra1n, and ultrasn0w to unlock. None of them would work and I kept moving phones around because I didnt know how to make the previous ios firmware files install. I had been using the shift option strategy but it always came up with errors. Finally I got ios 4.0 as a firmware file and reverted to that. Then I used jailbreakme again and tried ultrasn0w again and it just worked somehow.
