    Hello all,

    I've been using a JB Iphone4 on iOS 4.0 since launch. I jailbroke with jailbreakme and haven't had any issues. I followed the advice of everyone here to backup my SHSH blobs both with tinyumbrella and in Cydia. I KNOW that cydia has SHSH blobs on file. Additionally I have the local copies of the files that Tinyumbrella generated.

    Now,

    for whatever reasons today my phone screwed up after a reboot and won't come back on. I've opened TinyUmbrella (current version) and have started the TSS server but when trying to restore I get error 3002 in iTunes. In TinyUmbrella when I click Display devices (or whatever it's called) by device DOES NOT SHOW! The phone is in DTU (restore mode).

    Do I need to load 4.1 first, then downgrade for this to work?

    It appears that TInyUmbrella isn't seeing my blobs!

    Try re-downloading the SHSH blob from the Cydia server. It appears that your local copy was deleted.

    Repost X per day.

    Run Tinyumbrella:
    1) Make sure you Iphone is detected.
    2) check "Advanced Options."
    3) In new window, under "Device / Version," select the firmware version you want to restore to.
    4) Click on "Save my SHSH." Pray Cydia has them. If you don't get an error, it has been saved onto your computer.
    5) Repeat to save other firmware hashes if you wish.
    6) Now, click on "Display SHSHs." It should listed all hashes you have saved on your computer and the firmware you can restore with. If it's not there, you can't restore to it.
    7) Start "TSS server," download official firmware file somewhere (google) and restore through iTunes with that file.
    8) If you phone get stuck during the restore process, try "Kick out of recovery..."'in Tinyumbrella.
    9) Using safari on the phone, go to jailbreakme.com to JB.

    Condescension not with standing. As a first time poster, wouldn't you think that perhaps I have a track record of reading first and asking questions second?

    Run Tinyumbrella:
    1) Make sure you Iphone is detected.
    2) check "Advanced Options."
    3) In new window, under "Device / Version," select the firmware version you want to restore to.

    9) Using safari on the phone, go to jailbreakme.com to JB.[/QUOTE]

    In TinyUmbrella "Save my SHSH" box is greyed out. Won't let me push it.

    The copies of the blobs, or the files that TinyUmbrella created from when I saved the 4.0 blobs are still on my computer. Don't know how TU would have lost them. Maybe it's a problem with the current version of TU!

    How do I manually load the local blobs?

    Why would we think that? Past experience on this forum would make that a poor assumption.

    If Tiny Umbrella is not working, try this:

    1. Make sure your device has an iOS 4.0 or 4.0.1 SHSH saved on the Cydia server. You can do this by opening Cydia and looking at the top of the home screen just below where it says "Home - Cydia". If yes, then proceed to the next step.

    2. Download the firmware for your device to your computer from here:

    http://ios.e-lite.org/

    For example, if you have an iPhone 4 and an SHSH for iOS 4.0.1, click on the text "historical (click to expand)" at the bottom of the page and download the iPhone 4 "4.0.1 (8A306)" firmware.

    3. Edit the hosts file on your computer (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X)) and add this line to the end of it:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    4. Open iTunes, select your iPhone in the device list, then hold shift (option for Mac) and click restore. Locate and "Choose" the firmware you download in step 2 and click on "Restore".

    If you performed all the steps correctly, iTunes will now restore your iPhone to the version of firmware selected in step 2.

    I am not mind reader and it's more easy for me to copy / paste than rewriting.

    Are the saved blobs located in correct location? If saved SHSH option is greyed out, something is wrong when using TU. Is your phone detected? Does it have anything in ECID field?

    Why bother copying and pasting if you aren't going to read someone's post. You're probably not helping anyone. My opening post showed that I was aware and following the steps.

    Turns out, the problem is that I saved the blobs using TU 4.00 and today I opened TU 4.15. 4.15 wouldn't read my local files I presume. When I opened TU 4.00 my device was shown under "Display SHSHs"!

    I just now have to re-download the ipsw for 4.0 and I'll see if it works!!

    This attitude will get you no where real fast. Pissing off the people that can help you is not a smart move.

    I agree.
    How about a thank you instead of an attitude?
    Noone will try to assist you when you act like that.

    I'm thankful for anyone helping. I'm not thankful for someone who

    A) Didn't help by repasting what's already pasted everywhere
    B) Acts like he's doing someone a huge favor because (s)he can hit ctrl-C and ctrl-V
    C) Is condescending in tone, i.e. "Repost X per day"

    I don't post here because I can usually find my answers. I am, however, not new to "messageboards", I know how they work. If one feels burdened by repasting things, one shouldn't do it.

    "Trying" to help and actually helping are two different things. The person in question isn't going to be very helpful, if he just kneejerks to every SHSH blob thread with the same regurgitations. There are, as shown with this thread, problems that arise that aren't very well documented and that fall outside of the scope of those 9-steps.

    OP: I answered your question clearly and completely in the second post on this thread. If you had done what I suggested there, you would already have solved your issue.

    Actually, those nine steps would have solved your issue, too. In fact, they are just a more explicit statement of the advice I gave you. You may not care for his expression of frustration, but Myzhi gave you good advice. You'd do well to lose the attitude yourself.

    I'm surprised by the reduced level of reading around here.

    You did NOT solve my problem. My local copy was NOT deleted. My local copy was there. TU4.15 simply seems to not read copies generated by at least version 4.00. This is very different that local copies must've somehow got deleted.

    Additionally, there was no way to "redownload" the blobs because the option was grayed out in TU4.15. I'm guessing you can't get (or at least I don't know how) an ECID from a phone that is stuck in DFU and isn't booting normally.

    Now, that I have my phone restored. If I open TU4.15 and save my iOS 4.0 Blobs, it willl read them. What might not work is that if in the future there is a TU4.25, that it'll read the files generated by TU4.15.

    I admit, I might have overlooked something about TU that won't read files generated by earlier versions, so shame on me for not doing my homework.

    No no no. Nothing in those 9 steps solved my problem. What solved my problem, and the ONLY thing that solved my problem was opening TU4.00 (had to find it on the internet).

    I was also having issues trying to restore back to 4.0.1. I have read different threads and have done everything people have said and still get error 3194

    You should have started a new thread given OP's attitude. Anyway, I take it you follow my instructions posted above? When you click on "Show my SHSH," what is shown?

    It shows that my SHSH has been saved. Before my cydia decided to mess up on me I also seen that Cydia had my SHSH saved for 4.0.1

    Can you provide more detail when you follow my instructions from above step by step?

    For example:

    1) Make sure you Iphone is detected. => Check
    2) check "Advanced Options." => Check
    3) In new window, under "Device / Version," select the firmware version you want to restore to. => Check
    4) Click on "Save my SHSH." Pray Cydia has them. If you don't get an error, it has been saved onto your computer. => Try saving 4.0.1. Did you get error or not?
    5) Repeat to save other firmware hashes if you wish.
    6) Now, click on "Display SHSHs." It should listed all hashes you have saved on your computer and the firmware you can restore with. If it's not there, you can't restore to it. => Does it show 4.0.1?
    7) Start "TSS server," download official firmware file somewhere (google) and restore through iTunes with that file.
    8) If you phone get stuck during the restore process, try "Kick out of recovery..."'in Tinyumbrella.
    9) Using safari on the phone, go to jailbreakme.com to JB.

    Make sure you are using the 4.0.1 firmware file.

    Have you also tried this:
    Could be something on your computer blocking restore process. If all else fails, try a different computer.

    I'm done with you. I have never seen anyone with a worse attitude looking for help on this board. Believe it or not, the people here know a lot more about the iPhone than you do. Perhaps if you asked questions instead of insulting people and bitching about the way they answer you, you might get better results. But don't bother responding to me; your posts are being ignored.
