    I am trying to downgrade from iOS 5 to 4.3.3. Tiny umbrella shows I have the proper SHSH blob saved for that version.

    When I run the TSS server and then try to restore the phone with 4.3.3 in iTunes, I get the not eligible error.

    I have the old bootrom 3GS, on baseband 6.15.

    Anyone encountered this before?

    check in see in TU if your host is set to cydia, that is necessary for 4+ firmwares. Upgrading 5+ firmwares this needs to be deselected.

    Just tried that, but still getting the same error.

    I tried it with 4.2.1 as well, but I get the error as well.

    Really don't want to be stuck on iOS 5 :(

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You have to click save shsh first before you start TSS server.

    Okay, problem solved.

    I am using a VPN, and apparently that affects things.

    I turned my VPN off and boom... it works! :D

    Thanks for the replies.

    Just wondering your reasons for wanting to downgrade. I'm currently on 4.3.1 and considering upgrading to 5.0.1.
