    I used sauriks server to downgrade before and now i'm trying to do it with another phone.

    Somehow last time I found the /etc/hosts file through finder to do the appropriate editing but now I can't find it anymore.

    Which file or directory path do I look under/

    I tried typing /etc/hosts into terminal and it says I don't have permissions but i'm already logged in as administrator.

    Is there a reason it's not showing in finder?

    Any help would be much appreciated as i'm struggling here.

    Download a little app called Gas Mask, search Google for it. Works great for this.

    Open a Finder window. In the Go menu, select Go to Folder. Type in /etc and click Go. Find the file called hosts
