    If your iphone is emergency and you don't have a valid sim, you have to trigger into recovery mode.
    Turn your iphone off, close itunes and open up again. While hoding the Home button, plug in your cable until Itunes cable logo comes on.

    Now you can restore.
    What are you restoring to ?

    You can't, if you arrive at emergency screen, you probably hit restore in Itunes which takes you to 4.1. I hope you are with the official carrier, otherwise you have to scratch your head and take a deep breath before i tell you the bad news.

    Are you restoring to Custom firmware ? This is not the way to do it, certain conditions apply.

    Okay. I can talk to the original carrier though and get one of their sim cards and restore?? im lost.

    What if i just hit 'restore' and not shift & restore?

    You can downgrade to stock firmware if you have shsh blogs.
    You cannot simply restore to custom firmware from Stock, it won't work.
    Now your baseband is already updated, your iphone will only work with official carrier, if you have a different carrier, you are locked out.
    But you can use it as an Ipod Touch for now.

    To find out , this is what you do .
    Your iphone has to be bootable, not sure if it works on Emergency Screen.
    Download tiny umbrellla
    Plug your iphone in
    TU will recognize your ECID
    Click Advance Tab
    Device / Version highlight 3gs 4.0.1 shsh
    Request : Cydia
    Click Save shsh
    Wait for Answer ; if yes, then you can downgrade
    If it says you are too late, next don't be so late.
    You can also save your 4.1 shsh blogs to Cydia without jailbreaking.
    Same process but highlight 3gs 4.1 shsh blogs
    Request from Cydia and Click save shsh .

    No more questions, my shift is over, next shift will take over...LOL
