09-14-2010, 08:59 PM #13gs curr. on 4.0.1 - restoring to 4.0.1 - want to know all the worst case scencarios
so i have a 3gs on 4.0.1. my shsh files are saved. i wanted to restore my phone because it's being a little weird, random problems that only a restore can fix.
the reason i am posting though is because i'm afraid ahead of time there will be problems. 3194 errors... whatever.
so, my plan in just a few is to shift-restore and grab the 4.0.1 firmware for my phone.
am i going to need to do anything to avoid errors? i have itunes 10, windows 7.
so, let me have it. host file edits, whatever i may need to do/double check.
thanks ahead of time

Mainly just double check your hosts file and you should be good to go.

Put a # infront of the 127.0.0.1 and make leave the 74 one there without a # at the front.
Also don't restore from backup. Setup as new when you get there. Because some of your problems may carry over from the backup.

awesome, thank you. the last four lines of my host file now look like:
as long as that looks good, i'll go ahead and start the restore (not from backup. screw that backup, it sucked. :P ). thank you again.

If you run into issues check back with the error code it gives.
