    Unhappy Lost my Jailbreak
    Hope somebody can help. My iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0.1 crashed the other day and went into recovery mode. I had to recover through iTunes and it automatically upgraded to iOS 4.1. I have my SHSH blobs for iOS 4.0.1 saved on Cydia but when I try to restore through it fails. I have followed the instructions given and changed the IP adress so that iTunes connects to the Cydia server for verification but it still fails about 3/4 of the way through restoring.

    I am running Windows 7 and iTunes 10.0.0.68. I was jailbroken on 'jailbreakme.com'

    Please help!!! It is a pain without my jailbreak. I have heard that a new JB for 4.1 is coming soon but I can't wait.

    Try using TinyUmbrella to copy the 4.0.1 blob from Saurik's server (Cydia) to your own computer. It should be somewhere around 60 KB I believe. Modify your HOSTS file to point gs.apple.com to 127.0.0.1 (which is your own machine) instead of Saurik's IP, use TinyUmbrella to start the SHSH server, and then shift+click the Restore button in iTunes to browse to the 4.0.1 firmware file (use http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750 if you don't already have it downloaded to your comp). If, after a successful restore, it still is in recovery mode, click the handy "kick out of recovery mode" button in TinyUmbrella.

    This is a very abbreviated version of the instructions at http://modmyi.com/forums/3g-s-downgr...ecid-shsh.html so refer to that if you need more help (even though they are a bit outdated by this point).

    Thanks for the reply DanTheManMS, I have sorted the problem. The instructions I originally followed gave the wrong IP adress for Sauriks server and incorrect details in how to amend the 'Hosts' file. I finally found the correct instructions on this web site on Sunday night. IPhone now back to iOS 4.0.1 and jailbroken again, happy days!!!! I did use TinyUmbrella to 'kick phone out of recovery' also. Easy when you know how. Thanks again.
