    Okay I downloaded a custom firmware from the download page on this site. Now what do I do next, because when I go to Itunes restore, it says itll update NEWEST software updates, which is what I do not want. Do I unzip, etc and how do I find file? Whats this Shift+H stuff?

    Can you be a bit more specific? Which phone, which firmware, PC/MAC, what are you trying to do?

    The only way to jailbreak iPhone 4 is with jailbreakme and the phone needs to be on 4.0.1

    If your firmware is higher then you need to downgrade the firmware. This is only possible if you have SHSH files previously stored with cydia. I'm guessing you don't have this.

    If you don't and you're on 4.0.2 or 4.1 then you can't jailbreak at present.

    Ok I understand. You want to restore your phone to 4.0.1.

    In order to do that you need to have the SHSH file stored for 4.0.1 (even though you're already on it)

    Download tiny umbrella
    Connect your iPhone
    Go to advanced options
    Select iPhone 4 4.0.1
    Click save shsh (from cydia)
    If successful, you are in luck.
    Download genuine apple firmware 4.0.1
    Start tinyumbrella TSS server
    Start iTunes
    Hold shift and click restore
    Select the 4.0.1 ipsw
    And let iTunes do it's stuff
