    I just had the same problem and remedied it by quitting Redsn0w after creating the custom file, but before launching iTunes to restore.

    I would thank this post umpteen times!! Happily upgrading to iOS5.0.1 using Pwangetool!!

    I removed the gs.apple line that pointed to Saurik server and while I was at it placed a # in front of the iphonesubmissions.apple.com

    Can someone please elaborate on this "edit host file" process. Sitting here frustrated, I don't understand what that above website is telling me to change. Well I get I have to change something, I just don't understand "how" to make that change.

    Can someone please explain??

    If you are using Windows the host file is here:

    C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ or %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\

    Go to Finder
    Hit the "Shift + Command + G" keys
    Type "/private/etc/" into the search window
    Press enter
    Go to the file named "hosts"
    Open it in TextEdit.app

    Edit: or is it just /etc/ ?

    Go to folder.
    Type /private/etc/hosts

    Make sure the files are able to be written over.

    If your using redsn0w why are you building a IPSW on your own? RedsnOw on mac does it automatically for you. I used 0.9.10b1 this morning and it worked fine. The only issue I had was prior to the JB was that when I saved my sshblobs in TinyUmbrella I forgot to unccheck "set hosts to cydia on exit" and I did get an error only when upgrading to iOS 5.0.1 stock from apple. Once if fixed that I was good to go. SO I'm just confused on your workflow using redsn0w on mac since it basically automatic.

    Now if your using windows I understand the whole build your IPSW thing.
