Thread: Restore Issues
01-29-2012, 10:25 AM #1
I have read around this for about 5 hours now..
and I can feel my heart in my stomach as I am not seeing no resolution..
I decided to upgrade my jb 4.2.1 iphone4 to ios 5.0.1
however when I done this and tried to restore with itunes I got error 21 or 20
So then I put my phone into dfu.. tried again and since then I have been getting error 16xx either 1601..04.. etc
I have tried to use ireb to "pwn" my phone to restore and I used the ipsw I had downloaded onto my computer (shift restore)
still no luck..
I cannot seem to get my phone to restore.. I have also tried redsn0w pwn
I have my 4.2.1 shsh blobs saved on tiny umbrella.. however when I tried to shift and chose 4.2.1 in itunes it said
that it was no longer compatible with my phone..
what to do?

Try navigating to C: \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ hosts
and add this line at the bottom below the local hosts line:
then try againBeing an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.
