Thank you for your reply joshw0000! What happened was that fixrecovery just 'quit', soon after this the process on the iPhone itself ended up on a fail message. I waited around 5 mins to see if anything would happen, but... sadly - nothng. I then went into TU, hit exit recovery without any success... It seems that it won't work with 4.3.5?

Im sort of in the same boat as Joshw up there. I attempted to follow the instructions in the 2nd post but when I try to save my shsh's, nothing happens. I hit the button and the program just sits there. Any ideas?
EDIT: 3GS, 8gb, 4.3.5 software. Just bought it used and he wiped it before hand. Put my sim in, connected to Itunes and its working fine. NOw looking to down firmware to anything that has an unteathered jailbreak. This is where the problem is. I keep getting error 3195 from Itunes. So I saw this thread and now I cant create shsh files.

Start the process over. Downgrade to 4.1 (not any other version) in DFU with TSS running. Then again without TSS kn recovery mode. Try to exit again. If it fails, run the fix again. I must have restored a dozen times but I'm now jailbroken and unlocked. Hang in there.

Okay! So after restore 1 (DFU + TSS) ---> result: stuck in recovery mode!
RESTORE 2 (REVOVERY MODE! - NO TSS - NO TU RUNNING) - Error! --> Start TU --> hit EXIT RECOVERY --> SUCCESS!!! Now I can see that installed firmware is 4.1 and instelled baseband is --> 05.16.02-6.4_M3S2
Now this feels rather nice! Thank you joshw0000! You have the biggest pint of European beer!
Now jailbreak with limera1n + ultrasn0w unlock? ... I think the baseband is rather impossible to unlock? (05.16.02)

Even without the shsh files? I was under the assumption that without the shsh files, i couldnt downgrade? Now Im confuzzled :P

Do you see 4.1 SHSH when you connect your device to TU?
07-29-2011, 08:59 AM #47
No, when I open tiny umbrella and click on show all shsh's, nothing appears in the window. I then click on save my shsh and still nothing appears.
I put the phone into DFU mode, Tiny umbrella TSS running, then tried to restore. I get erorr 1600

Do not start the downgrade until you save the shsh files. You are in DFU (black screen) and not recovery (connect itunes screen) right? I didn't have any problem at that step. I'll have to retrace when I get home tonight. But don't start downgrading without them or you'll be SOL.
Use redsnow from the link above. After you jailbreak, go back into it and install ipad BB. Then you can unlock with ultrasnow from Cydia

Did you deselect anything to do with Cydia in the advanced tab? Reboot your computer, unplug your Iphone, and try again. What error code are you getting? Is TU giving you any errors when you first open it?
07-29-2011, 11:46 AM #54
When I open TU, it says "request SHSH from Cydia is currently set. This can cause issues if you are trying to save current shsh as cydia is no longer able to reliably proxy shsh requests. Please change your setting in the advanced tab and click apply changes." Click ok and get another message "you currently have set hosts to cydia on exit set. If you are having issues restoring, you need to uncheck this box." click ok and with the settings like this, it will not save my shsh files.
If I remove that option and reopen, I get the same first message (but not the second). Still no ability to save shsh files.

I don't see a problem with downgrading to 4.1 without trying to use SHSHs. I've helped a couple users downgrade to 4.1 without telling them to save their SHSHs first. If you're pointing at Cydia's server and trying to restore to a firmware version that is actually being allowed right now, it's not going to work. This is the case for 4.3.5. If you have TU auto point to Cydia's server you can't restore to stock 4.3.5 because it isn't pointing at Apple's server. If iTunes is allowing 4.1, shouldn't the concept be the same.

Alls I want is to downgrade to something I can get an untethered jailbreak. From there, I'll be a happy camper. Im a bit of an idiot when it comes to stuff like this so today was the first time I had really had attention focused on shsh files. Blackrain didnt make any mention of them.
So, if I can be an absolute pain (more so than already), can you point me to a link on what I should do, step by step?
Thank you so very much to all who have posted and will post. Some of this is very overwhelming.

Well that's what I'm trying to help you do. Restore to stock 4.1 without SHSHs, and also ensure in TU that the option to point to cydia on exit is not checkmarked. After doing so in TU, open iTunes and do the shift+restore to stock 4.1. When you get error 1015 then open TU and exit recovery.
edit: after you successfully downgrade, I'd be happy to help you jailbreak while you're at it
