    Default 3GS 3.1.2 Stuck at apple logo after I erased all settings. Please Help!
    Hey guys! I have problem. Got a 3GS off ebay. Was 3.1.2 with jailbroken blackra1n. Then I erased and cleared all settings to clear old data (big mistake it seems that was) and now I'm stuck. I don't have the SHSH files. I've tried upgrading to 3.1.3/4.0/4.0.1 cause I need it unlocked but iTunes won't restore (error 3194). Changing host file doesn't work either.

    What do I do next? Please, please help me quick I'm phoneless!

    Have you tried using tiny umbrella http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/ to see if you can download your SHSH files? Seems strange that it was jailbroken on 3.1.2 and has no SHSH (though not impossible).

    Add this line to your hosts file : 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    and the rest of it put a # in front of it, save it and reboot your pc.
    Then Shift + restore to the ipsw that has shsh blogs.

    I tried using tiny umbrella but it did not display any SHSH's. I'm using v4.02.05 of tiny umbrella. Do I need to click the 'start tss server' button first?

    No but you have to press the Save my SHSH first, it will not display your SHSH automatically. You can click on advanced and pick which firmwares you want to download SHSH from cydia for (assuming they are there in the first place).

    Download this version of tiny umbrella, 4.02.05 .
    Run tiny umbrella , click advanced option
    Under Device version, highlight the shsh you need to grab
    Request from Cydia
    Click Save Shsh
    When done Display Shsh to see.
    If it is there, then go to your hosts file
    Highlight under the Device/Version of firmware shsh
    ADD only this line : 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com to your hosts file ( the rest has to be commented out by this #)
    Save it.
    Run Tss Server
    Put your Iphone Into Recovery mode, if not then DFU mode
    Do the Shift + Restore to the corresnponding shsh blogs you have ( Stock firmware not custom firmware for this method )
