    Can anybody outline the exact steps involved in the updation of firmware throughiTunes? I've heard a lot of posts saying that I can update my pohon'es firmware through iTunes to get services, even if I jailbreak my phone. So would like the exact steps to be sure about it. Thanks.

    1. Install the latest version of iTunes from Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes

    2. Connect iPhone to your computer.

    3. In iTunes, select iPhone in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.

    4. Click “Check for Update.” iTunes will tell you if there’s a newer version of iPhone software available.
    5. Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore iPhone to its original settings. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the update/restore process.
