Thread: How do I reverse the "Caching Apple's Signature Server"

  1. #1
    Question How do I reverse the "Caching Apple's Signature Server"
    I have done completed the directions found on Sauriks website for "Caching Apple's Signature Server"

    Now, my girlfriends iPhone is acting up and I have to restore it. It is not, nor has it ever been jailbroke, so I do not have an ECID on file with Cydia. I realize I have to upgrade her phone to 3.1 , but it keeps giving me an error when I attempt this. I assume this is because my iTunes is no longer "talking" to apple to get a signature.

    Can someone please help me reverse what I did? If someone is able to help me please give specific directions, I am new to Mac and things do not come easy for me on it, I am still learning

    You need to edit the /etc/hosts file, and remove:
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    1) Open Terminal.app
    2) Run: sudo nano /etc/hosts
    3) Enter password when prompted
    4) Press down until you get to the line that says 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    5) Delete the line
    6) Press Ctrl + O, press enter, then Ctrl + X.

    You've now reversed the changes you made.

    Thank you for the very clear instructions, that is exactly what I needed.

    Unfortunately, I am have a similar problem as when I first tried the initial process. I have never set up a password in my laptop before, so I don't have a password to enter. If I just press enter in terminal as I would when I install a program and the prompt pops up, terminal says "try again". Is there a default I don't know of?

    Ah, no.
    In that case, you'll need to set one to be able to edit it.

    You can do this via System Preferences, I believe it's under Accounts, or User Accounts - I forget the exact wording and don't have my Mac to hand.
