Thank you, really great Guide! Just for me to understand:
At part 2 (Easy Way), you HAVE TO have a valid 3.0 ECID on Sauriks Server, so basicly you are just copying it to your PC, so that you can restore with your own private Server.
At part 3 (Hard Way), you are generating a new 3.1 ECID, like Saurik does it right now in Cydia.
Am i right about this?

Ive a crashed 3Gs with 3.0. It always shows Apple icon and wheel und reboot again.
Ive saved my Ecid by USB. Is it possible with this tools to restore a 3.0 firmware on my 3.0 3Gs?
Tried to create a shsh file for 3.0 but nothing happens. No File appears.

No, it is only possible if you had saved your 3.0 ECID in Cydia. Still no way to restore for people who saved the purplera1nyday certificate via USB

I can get to all the way of creating the 00.shsh file but can not get itunes to do the 3.0 restore.
I am also getting an error message like 'Server not available or could not be contacted'
(doing this all on win7 x64)
I modified my hosts file with 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
When I ping gs.apple.com it resolves to 127.0.01
But Itunes wont see it (I tried both tinyss.exe and tinyss64.exe), and I ran a netstat -a before running tiny to validate Im not using port 80 (or listening on it)
Has anyone gotten itunes to communicate with their own server?

lol im only stuck at the getting the shsh thing...
i can't seem to open umbrella - gui....

@Wacktool As far as i know the downgrade process only works with itunes 188.8.131.52 or earlier

In other words, do not load TinyTSS with your 3.1 blobs and try to restore 3.0.x.
That will not work. I have no idea what you will do to your phone if you try that. I'm not responsible for your carelessness.

hallo all. managed to get the shsh file using the hard way and now it says that my ecid is malformed and shown that it can be fixed at bla bla bla websites...
09-21-2009, 03:30 PM #30
Hmm, thanks for that post Looi3!
I was just about to attempt that.
The way I read this guide was that I could connect my OS 3.1 3GS, obtain my ECID, run Umbrella with the syntax '-v 3.0' or '3.0.1' to create the SHSH the 'Hard Way' and all would be fine and dandy when serving this on 127.0.0.1 allowing me fool itunes and restore sucessfully to previous firmwares which can be jailbroken.
So the question is, what is the point of this guide? Simply to create and store a 3.1 SHSH for future use?
Why oh why did I press the restore button and not notice the '0' was no longer there in the OS version.
Come on Redsnow 3.1 3GS JB!!

ok here it goes... I created a 00.shsh file with the sysntax v 3.0 but the thing here is that it did not create the correct file (4kb). It only creates a correct file (60-70kb) when I give 3.1 as the parameter. So the big question is what to do now? How do I get back to 3.0 from my 3.1 OS version?

First things first. I've just finished an updated version of Umbrella GUI, it's now compiled using Java version 1.5.
This means both Umbrella and the GUI are now 1.5 compatible.
I would highly recommend downloading the latest versions of both before trying anything.

Hey iGuru, since you're in a question answering mood, I got one for ya. Any idea why when I try to get my 3.0 blobs from saurik's server with the umberella command line utility (they are there, I tested his method the first day he posted on his site about it, and was successful) I get an HTTP 411 error? I looked it up, and I figured out what it meant, just didn't understand why I get it.

OK, thanks. I think I am using the 2nd release. I will try that.
Cool, it worked. Yay

I'm on a fresh install of iTunes 184.108.40.206, Tinytss gives back Success while I get error 3001 from iTunes.
I'm on 3.1 3GS I put the 3.0.1 shsh on file (or at least Cydia said I had it on file.)
I am trying to downgrade to anything at this point. I tried both 3.0 and 3.0.1 just in case.
09-21-2009, 09:15 PM #37
2) If your file is not approx 64KB, you'll most likely have a 3.0 SHSH on file, not 3.0.1 - grab that and try downgrading to 3.0.
3) you need to downgrade using iTunes 9 - that's the version that worked for me.
Hope this helps.

Ok, I tried every type 3.0, 3.0.1 and 3.1 all shsh files came out as 40Kb even. however I did have a saved one from before I posted that is the correct size but is a 3.1 file.
also updating to iTunes 9.0 as I type.

If so, you were one of the people that had Cydia falsely report that you had an ECID SHSH on file, when actually there was an error during processing your request and you do not.
Edit: It's gone 4:30am now, so i'm going to get some sleep. If you need more help just post here and I'll answer when I'm up.

yes i did get the malformed error from those files, however I used umbrella several times to see if I could get the entire files back, so far it seems to have worked, I loaded up the 3.0 FW and the apple with the loading bar is on my iphone screen now.
Edit: error 1015 with the 3.0 shsh at correct size, now trying 3.0.1.
looks like 3.0.1 wont even give me a good shsh file so i'll have to stick with 3.0.
