When I run Cydia it says I have my SHSH on file for 3.1 and 3.1.2 but when I try to restore I get the error "device is not el..."
Of course I did modify the hosts file
I have also flushed dns and restarted itunes but still the error appears..
Thanks in advance!

I having the same problem. Before I had to restore to 3.1.3 cause i got the infinite boot loop, Cydia said i had my SHSH on file for 3.0, 3.1.1, and 3.1.2.

If you're absolutely sure you have the SHSHs stored on Cydia, you haven't edited the hosts file properly.
Also, try restarting your computer after you've edited it.
You can test if you've done it properly by opening up a command prompt and typing:
The response should come from the IP you put into the hosts file.

Same exact issue here. I put the SHSH on the cydia server on 3.1.2 then I wanted to restore default 3.1.2 for particular reason but got the invalid version eligibility etc..
Now I tried the get the SHSH info from cydia and nothing.
I know 100% was on file.
Did the make My life easier...
Any ideas.... I'm stuck with a phone in recovery mode and I cant make it boot. blackrain no go either.. Just his photo sits forever on the iphone screen, no boot.

Ah...To think all this started when I tried to restore an official 3.1.2 to "unjailbreak" the phone back to original.
Phone was 3.1.2 already.
Will I be able to fix this? no way to boot the phone as it was before with blackrain starter...
Update to custom 3.1.2 fails also...

if using custom firmware fails you probably have the new iBoot phone and they do not accept custom firmware...

If custom firmware is not possible, is my only choice to restore to 3.1.3 via Cydia restore? Presumably the restore is to official Apple 3.1.3 fw, ie the 3.1.3 restoration will block any attempt to JB?
Cheers for any replies!

you have the new iBoot so custom firmwares are out of the question...you can try reading some of the other threads here about blackra1n bootloop fixes..if none of those resolve your problem and you have to restore it will have to be to 3.1.3 because you do not have 3.1.2 shsh's saved on cydia
