    Not working for me.

    - I added "# 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com" to my hosts
    file.
    - Downloaded iPod Touch 4G 4.1 firmware, and Shift + Clicked the restore button.
    - Successfully put my device into DFU Mode (Power off, plug in, Power + Home, let go of power)

    but nothing works for me.
    I always get an error code (number 3thousandsomething)

    Is there a way I can fix this?

    Download TinyUmbrella (Google it), then try to get your SHSH blobs (Google them), if you can't get your 4.1 blobs then there is no way to get on to that version.

    Try restoring in iTunes while holding the shift key. I have the shsh blobs in Tinyumbrella, but it worked without it open.

    Even if you did have the SHSH blobs stored on Saurik's server, the line you added to your hosts file is not going to do you any good as long as that '#' character is at the front. Remove that. It's a comment character...it makes the DNS resolver IGNORE THAT LINE. With # in front of it, it's as if that line wasn't even there.

    Whatever site you copied that from that contains the # in front of it is in error.

    I have the 4.1 file if you need it.

    So when you go to iTunes, and do Alt+click, you can choose the file.
