I have the same question that "uzoc2005" has, I have a 3gs, it had 3.1.3 on it, but I was trying to put it into DFU mode and it went black and nothing I could do would bring it back. So I upgraded itunes and had no choice but to install 4.0.
Guess my question is did I screw it all up by doing that and how do we get our 3.0/3.0.1 ECID SHSH via Cydia if Cydia was never installed.
I feel like such a noob!
Part 2 - Getting your ECID SHSH
Windows Users: Make sure you have Java Runtime Environment 5 or higher installed.
Download Umbrella and extract to desktop.
1) Double click umbrella.jar
2) Enter your ECID in the box provided
3) Select Device Version from the list
4) Select SHSH Repository from the list
5) Click Submit
A file ending in ".shsh" should appear in the folder.
Check your shsh file is approx 64-66 KB, if it is not, it is not a valid ECID SHSH file.
Note: If you wish to get your 3.0/3.0.1 SHSH file from Saurik's server, make sure to select "Saurik - Cydia" from the SHSH Repository list.
-I did Part 2 as listed above and I got my ECID and opened Umbrella and entered ECID, not sure what firmware to choose, I tried 3.0 - 3.1 and clicked "Save My SHSH" and it keeps telling me "This device isn;t eligible for the requested build".
If anybody has a suggestion, please tell.

If you didn't have Cydia ever installed, then the only way for you to get the appropriate SHSH file was if you pulled it yourself while Apple was still signing them. Or, if you redirected traffic to Saurik's server (by modifying the HOSTS file) while the restore requests were still being signed, then Saurik's server would have the file and you could pull it from there. If you did neither, then you cannot downgrade because as of June 23rd, Apple stopped signing 3.1.3 restore requests. Unless Saurik's server or your computer has the .shsh file, you'll only be able to restore to 4.0.

Use embrella to retrieve your SHSH from Saurik's server by choosing "Saurik-cydia" from the SHSH Repository list. Try 3.0, 3.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3.

I have a 3gs on 3.1.2 jb & unlock with my shsh hash back up on cydia for 3.1.2 . in cydia it also says I have 3.1.3 backup as well, but I never upgraded to the 3.1.3 firmware. my ? is do I need to do anything to get my shsh blob backed up for the 4.0 firmware so that I will have it back up if any thing happens that I need it.
every time I open umbrella 4.00 it already has a ecid # there with my 3gs on 4.0 but the ecid # that I got of off usbview is different but it does come with the correct name of the iphone account everything is right except the ecid # . also the file size is 60kb and up above it says it should be 64 to 66kb for the 3.0 & 3.0.1 . am I doing something wrong.

Can anyone please help me...I followed all instructions and even using umbrella I uploaded my shsh to saurik's server. However I am getting the "3002" error code..
Now is there a way to redirect the "hosts" file to read the shsh on my "localhost" or in other words from "my computer" in order to trick itunes in downgrading 4.0.1 iPhone 3gs.. to 3.1.3?
08-04-2010, 01:42 AM #669Fix for port 80 tinytss
I had this issue stated on The Firmware Umbrella: March 2010
"Q: I cannot listen on port 80! I can't start up TinyTSS because it says the port is in use! HELP!
A: On this I cannot help you much. You're going to have to do some legwork to figure out your own machine. Google is your friend. Try googling " default services port 80" and see if you get any hints. TinyTSS MUST listen on port 80 AND the hosts entry must exist (127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com) in order to trick iTunes."
and managed to fix them problem. Spy bot search and destroy modifys the host file causing the tss server to not work. My solution was to open SB and remove host files then edit 'hosts' in CWindows\System32\drivers\etc removing the "entered by SB lines" and now it works.
hope this helps someone cause this f'd me up for awhile
also instead of tinytss.exe its just the name of umbrella you DL'd
Setup iphone 3g[s] 3.1.3 Spirit JB
modem firmware 05.12.01
Win vista 32bit SP2
have 3.1.3 and 4.0.1 ispw on file.
have tried DFU mode running tinytss via umbrella with everything working and shsh's restorable and cannot restore to stock 3.1.3 or 4.0.1 in the current setup continue getting 3014 error.
According to apple its a communication error however this should not be an issue with umbrella as cmd.exe shows 127.1.0.1 (something like that) is responding on gs.apple.com ping. I tried using cydia's ip to request verification and still am having the same error.
Google is unhelpful for once and everyone whom asks has the same problem cannot find a fix. cheers.
*Tried by clean install of itunes 188.8.131.52 (one umbrella dude says he uses to test) at no avail, completely lost for any way of doing this now any help would be much appreciated!
Testing with 9.2.1 at present seems like a straight update then downgrade is the only solution due to my basband
Update 1: on further reading anyone with my baseband and has spirit JB should not touch 9.2.1

This the result I'm getting when I ping gs.apple.com.
Please help.... anyone. Everytime I run my own server its error. I'm using a 3gs new bootrom MB model. I want to downgrade back to 4.0 because I update my idevice right after watching D7's video. I'm not aware that the new jailbreakme is for the legit sim cards user. It never hit the dock screen and stuck in the emergency call only witht the cable and itunes logo.

I'm downgrading to 4.0 and error 1604 it says.... after a long hung on "Preparing your iPhone for restore". I tried to use quick pawn 220.127.116.11 to fix the loop but its error upon starting. Please advise.
08-16-2010, 04:13 AM #674hangs on verifying restore with apple...
i have gone through all of the steps successfully.. i think..
and now in itunes it seems to be hanging on "verifying restore with apple.."
what should i do? have i done something wrong through the process? gs.apple.com pinged correctly.. i have the correct shsh file.. not sure what could have gone wrong. or is it a matter of simply unplugging my iphone and trying again?
edit: all good.. didnt realise i had to click on start tss server in umbrella!
now just waiting for the restore to complete. great downgrade guide!

Why would you pay for something that is free all over the internet and the hackers who create these programs to jailbreak the iPhone say it's supposed to be free?

Help if can please - I bought a 3gs that was jail-broken. I made the mistake of clicking factory reset and was not able to ever get it past the silver apple. So a friend restored it on i tunes to 4.1 I have been using umbrella to look for my shsh files and couldn't find any until i checked for 3g, i now have 3 shsh found for 4.0, 4.01 and 4.02 but all are for the 3g. my 3gs shsh only finds 4.1 - how can I use the 3g shsh files for my 3gs phone?
