iPhone 3G will never get past 4.2.1 due to hardware limitations,

there is no 4.3.3 for a 3g iphone ?!

the lastest fimrware for a 3G is 4.2.1 if i am correct

for tinyumbrella you must start it as admin and try to disable the antivirius .

so you dont need shsh files because 4.2.1 is signed by apple .

if you need a unlock just make a costum firmeware in redsn0w for it :)

what you mean you can not transfer ?

just connect the iphone to the us account , then download the puchased app . but there is no 4.3.3 for a 3g phone ..

Thanks for the quick answerr about 4..3..3 you saved me a lot of headache trying to figure that out I noticed that I don't receive push notifications on my current 4.1 jb'd iphone 3g. Do I need to upgrade to 4.2.1?

i cannot download an app itunes recognized that I am in thailand and sandboxes me into the Thai iTunes store. Here I cannot access my PayPal. So I had a friend in the US log into iTunes from there and make the purchase for me, so now I need to get the app. I look into the available purchases and it will not show up because it immediately puts me into the Thai store
