download the firmware from that link for your iPhone. For example choose iPhone 3G S 4.3 if you have a 3G S.

Save it to your desktop.

Once it has downloaded , go into itunes open up your iPhone tab.

Then option and click together on the restore tab.

Click the downloaded file on your desktop

And then follow the instructions on the screen.
