    Default Problem downgrading, did i miss something?
    I'm on ios 5 beta want quick reply back so i decided to downgrade... i have my host file set up correct and my shsh is saved on 4.3.3, but whenever i try to downgrade I get an error code 20

    Ive downgraded before and have never had this problem.. i'm just wondering if missed something... maybe i can't downgrade anymore?

    specs

    iphone 4 ios 5 beta 4
    Itunes 10.5 beta 5 ( i also tried with 10.4)
    Osx Snowleopard
    I do have tiny umbrella

    Maybe i forgot something.

    Update:: When i tried to do an apple offical restore to 4.3.5 it gave me a "device is not eligible for this build" message.

    Try using pwnage to put your phone in DFU to restore to 4.3.3
    The reason ou are getting " device is not eligible" is because your host file is still pointed at TU host. Use TU to point it back to Apple if you want to restore to 4.3.5

    1.First download the firmware that you want to downgrade to.

    2.Next put your iPhone in DFU Mode.

    3.Then hold down the alt-opition key on the keyboard and click the restore button, browse for the firmware you downloaded in step 1. then click it.
