    Default TinyUmbrella doesn't clean up hosts file
    I have noticed that the last few versions of Tiny Umbrella and version 4.1.9 do not clean up the host file on your Windows or Mac computer. When you run Tiny Umbrella and save your SHSH blobs to Cydia and to your local computer, it modifies your host file and adds the following line:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    After closing Tiny Umbrella, there should be no reference to gs.apple.com, like 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com or 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com.

    I have tweeted @notcom to let him know about this bug.

    It's intended. I know where you're coming from since it "forces" people to have the Cydia reference in the file, but it's to help the people who aren't too knowledgable about the whole SHSH thing.

    there's an option to restore the hosts in Advanced settings tab in current versions of TU. Just an FYI.
