I have a jailbroken 3Gs with 4.0.1 firmware. It got stuck into restore mode with black screen. My SHSH blobs are saved into cydia as 4.0. I would like to restore my phone without having to upgrading it. I tried the tiny umbrella method as well as the hosts method, but wasn't working. Anyone know how to get it back running?

Tiny umbrella isn't connecting to my phone. Only itunes picks up my phone and says it is in restore mode. The screen is completely black, no apple logo or USB connect to itunes logo either.

The furthest that gets me is a white screen on my phone, prepare for restore - verified by apple then prepare for restore and verify by apple again and gives me error 28.

Reboot your pc again .
Do you have tiny umbrella ? If you do run it , click display shsh to see. If you see that there is 4.0.1 shsh saved in umbrella.
Click Advanced tab, under device /version : highlight 4.0.1 shsh for 3gs
If you are in DFU /Recovery mode , that is OK
click Start Tss Server : It will say connecting.
Itunes will close , open itunes again, a message will pop up saying you need to restore. Click OK and OK
Do the Shift + Restore to 4.0.1 ipsw which you must download too .
You must leave tss server running while you are restoring.
Get back to me on your progress here

I need all the help I can get. I am going to reset my comptuer right now, I'm trying it on my desktop now. But yeow, my info doesn't pop up on tiny umbrella when i connect my phone to it. I have to go to advance and stick in my info from there.

No, open up tiny umbrella and click display shsh , tell me what you see there. Get back to me after you reboot your pc.
You have two thread, just use this one, alright. It is very confusing for me to jump back and forth.
