    Default tinyumbrella 3194 cannot start tss server
    I have a big probalem with tinyumbrella

    I can open tinyumbrella


    But when i open it says
    "Request SHSH From Cydia" is currently set
    This can cause issues if you are trying to save current SHSHs as Cydia is no longer able to reliably proxy SHSH requests
    Please change your setting in the 'Advanced ' tab and click the Apply Changes' button or use the 'Edit' menu to apply changes first

    Then it says
    Cannot Start TSS Service
    Do not try and restoring your Device!!!!
    CWindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts is not writable!

    Then in the program it says Tinyumbrellas Tss server is not running

    Please help I have only 10 days b4 i go home and my friend really wants me to jailbreak his phone plus its running really buggy atm because i tried jailbreaking it on redsn0w and it didnt work it needs a restore badly

    Right click the hosts file > properties > un-check read-only > Ok
    Now open TU

    Probable causes:

    1) Not administrator or do not have administrator privileges to write to the file.
    2) Read-only
    3) The security permissions are not set correctly. (Properties/Security)
    4) A virus. Check for other files with a same name 'hosts' but with a different extension.

    Check, correct as necessary, and try again

    Its called hosts.txt
    I also have another file called
    Imhosts.txt

    Im on a 64 bit windows seven i heard that could be causing the problem?
    Any ideas?

    1) hosts file should not have an extension.
    2) I believe the two other 'hosts' files pose no virus risk.
    3) The hosts file should contain "127.0.0.0.1 localhost". It's missing .... not good

    Something has modified hosts which typically occurs with a virus or browser hijacker (both considered viruses)
    TU will not run correctly if the hosts file is not-writable.

    If deleted, the hosts file will not be recreated !! Looks like a virus, acts like a virus, I think you have a virus.

    Do a google search on browser attacks. They regularly attack the hosts file.

    This is the minimum requirements for a hosts file:
    # #
    # Notes: The Operating System does not read the "#" symbol #
    # You can create your own notes, after the # symbol #
    # This *must* be the first line: 127.0.0.1 localhost #
    # #

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    hey everyone sorry to bump this old thread but I currently have this problem

    I am Administrator on the PC
    The host files are NOT "read only"
    TU 5.10.12


    what I think my problem is that I don't even have the host file anymore, I previously used TU to downgrade my old iPhone4 but then had to remodify a host file a while after to update my iPod touch as it kept throwing an iTunes error code.

    Can someone confirm what files *should* be in the system32/drivers/etc/ folder ? I have only these files.
    " lmhosts -SAM FILE"
    " networks -FILE"
    " protocol -FILE"
    " services -FILE"

    IDK WTF is up, any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Default CWindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts is not writable!
    Open "Notepad" as an Administrator,

    Start--> Type "Notepad" in the search box--> Right click on the "Notepad" in the results, click on "Run as administrator"


    notepad--> File -> Open-> CWindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    You host file might be in "read only" mode, so for that right click on hosts file, click properties & uncheck read me only from the bottom.

    Now You can edit the hosts file.

    You can only restore to IOS 6.0 even though you have 5.1.1 blob. This is due to A5+ chip which has no exploit.

    Use Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 's Restore feature without using itunes and don't use Tss Server.
