    If it's a 3G you shouldn't be getting error 3194 when restoring to 3.1.x. Make sure you change your host file back if you changed it for using SHSHs. If you didn't change it, are you using a stock 3.1.x ipsw?

    Oh yeah, try running iReb while restoring. Bypasses errors.

    Well if you don't know what the host file is, I doubt you changed it. Have you tried on a different computer? You are putting it in DFU before restoring right?

    Since you have a 3g, to test out if your iphone has a problem.
    Go download 3g , 3.1.3 ipsw , put your iphone into DFU mode and do the Shift + Restore to 3.1.3, if everything goes well, error 1015 will pop up , use Exit Recovery from the feature of Tiny Umbrella.
    If you still get error 21, then it might be some hardware issue.

    Yeow, is error 21 relevant to 28? Just curious if the battery drain/removal will fix that.

    Congrats on mod status btw.

    I don't think, error 21 can be resolved the same way as error 28.
