Thread: Why cant I restore my iPhone 4????

  1. #1
    Default Why cant I restore my iPhone 4????
    This is really pissing me off..I have an iPhone 4 on a Mac OSX. I used tiny umbrella to save my shsh files so I can downgrade but it does not work. My phone is stuck in dfu mode. When I go to restore it to either 4.0,4.01 or even 4.02 the status bar just hang about 3/4 of the way. I really need to use my phone. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    you have to change you host file on you mac so it talkes to cydia server instead of apples or you will not be able to downgrade

    If he is using tiny umbrella he doesn't need to modify his hosts file, tiny umbrella should do that for him.

    I just tried to restore again and I got the 1004 error..atleast its not hanging anymore.

    this is a very simple downlgrade and should only take a few minutes, although all files will be lost unless they were backed up. first open itunes and connect you device. then hit command and click restore. the you can chose the firmware you want to downlograde to. and if don't already have that firmware, you can download it iPod, iPhone and iPad Firmware Download

    Twitter that is from the creator of tiny umbrella. So it seems this error is normal, you just need to use irecovery or recboot to boot the phone out of recovery after.
