Try this: download 2.2 firmware her: iPhone Firmware 2.2

1. Launch iTunes
2. Shift-click Restore for Windows users and option-click restore for Mac users
3. Choose your .IPSW file that you want to restore to (point where you store the firmware 2.2)
4. iTunes will do the rest!

Question on #3, is there an option (like 2.1 or 2.2 etc) that pops up in iTunes or do you have to have the 2.2 FW saved to your computer?

I haven't heard of having to download a file before restoring (but I've never restored as a new phone so I'm not sure). Is the saved file just for JB iPhones, or all iPhones to be restored to factory settings?
