Open up iTunes

Hold down shift on your keyboard and click restore choose the 3.0 .ipsw file from your documents ( Or wherever you have download it to) and it will downgrade back to 3.0

I have tested this and it works

If you haven't got the .ipsw file here it is

Restore your phone with 3.0 FW?


Why don't you like 3.0.1- there are no differences except the sms problem.

Are you doing this just to jailbreak? With redsnow, you can jailbreak with 3.0.1 firmware. I was acually wanting to go back to 3.0 firmware too, but it was really complicated, but I was researching, and I found I could jailbreak on my firmware! Just YouTube redsnow if you're looking to do that man.

And make sure you download the 3.0 file for redsnow as instructed, not the 3.0.1.

Going back to 3.0 from 3.0.1 is easy all you do is download the 3.0 ispw file open iTunes hold down shift click restore in iTunes and choose the 3.0 file then your done.
