    I'm trying to find it to follow Suarik's instructions. I did it on my old macbook pro but can't even find it on my iMac running LION.

    Please help

    It's hidden in finder, but that's irrelevant. If you want to edit yours hosts file use nano in terminal:

    • Launch terminal
    • Code:
      sudo nano /etc/hosts
    • enter your password
    • edit what you want
    • press ctrl-o to save

    So I can't get iTunes to do restore my iPhone. It says it won't sign it. I may have messed up that host file.

    Is my original host file and your original host file the same? If so could I see what it's suppose to look so I can put mine back to normal.
