    Plug your iPhone into your computer -> Open iTunes -> Press 'Restore'.

    That's all there is to it.

    Don't complicate matters by downloading your own IPSW file. Simply let iTunes do the work for you.

    Do a "cat /etc/hosts" in Terminal. It should look like this:

    # Host Database
    # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
    # when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.
    ##	localhost	broadcasthost
    ::1             localhost 
    fe80::1%lo0	localhost
    If there's a line for then you'll need to remove it. The easiest way is to use nano ("sudo nano /etc/hosts", remove the line, Ctrl-X to save and quit).
