Here is the preface to my problem: My phone fell out of my jeans while riding my motorcycle. The screen cracked and the camera ribbon cable broke. I took it to a place @ the mall and they replaced the digitizer, glass and camera. I forgot my password and when I plugged it into itunes it wanted to update the IOS (Im guessing since the phone was already synced with this itunes). I went ahead and accepted the update. It failed with error code 9. Now it reboots into a blue screen then restarts. I have put it into DFU mode and get the iphone cable plugging into iTunes. I am not able to do anything. I have downloaded different ios version (ipsw's) and tried manually selecting the file to restore and it fails. I'm not too familiar with the ios versions these days. I used to jailbreak my iphone 3 and 4.. Things have changed drastically. i used the neal python script savethemblobs to get my shsh. Then started the TSS server from tinyumbrella with no luck. I can see iTuns requesting the the blob on in the tinyumbrella logs but iTunes still gets error 17.
