It was jailbroken before all this
This is the process of me restoring it (3gs 8gb iOS=4.x.x)
Start the iphone
Plug it in to the computer
Get the message "itunes has discovered an iphone in recovery mode blabla"
Press restore with newest version 5.x
Receive the messege "error 21,2002,2005 and maybe more
but right after the extracting software is done, the screen goes black and it beeps as if it was disconnected the connects again but stays black :/
I've tried using another ipsw (4.3.3) but same thing happens.
Please help me as i have no idea how to fix this :/

I am not completely sure but i think it was 4.2..x (possibly 4.2.1)
baseband, well i never altered or changed the baseband for all iknow, i just jailbroke it and that's all i can say about it.
Tiny umbrella not installed (unless it's installed by default)
never used shsh and don't know what it is.

For all of you who has the same problem try this;
Go to: CWindows\System32\drivers\etc
and delete all files that has the name "host"
Restart itunes and it should work.

Oh ok...but u should have to do that...most likely there was a reference to an apple.com name and ip address in there..all you really should have to do is edit that line out in the file itself...but glad u got it going...
