    hello,
    i have a 3gs, and i was jailbroken on 3.1.3 i was trying to restore to 4.0.1. i had shsh's saved with cydia. last night i put my iphone into dfu mode, i saw the connect to itunes logo on my iphone. i had edited my host file on my macbook pro.

    i wonder if i was supposed to enter dfu mode. or if i just should have plugged my iphone in to my mac and option clicked restore in itunes and then chose the fw 4.0.1 ipsw file which i had downloaded?

    any way itunes was saying my iphone needed to be restored, so i option clicked and chose the ipsw file for 4.0.1. everything was going good, until itunes said preparing iphone for restore. it was taking to long so i disconnected my iphone and that was when i got the 2005 error.

    i am going to try again, i have wifi now. but it seems like my iphone is stuck in dfu mode.

    any help would be appreciated.

    if you can see the itunes logo thing then its not dfu mode its restore mode, dfu mode is when he screen is completely black
