    So I have a 3gs running 4.0.1 jailbroken. I'm selling the phone tomorrow so I just did a phone reset and selected erase all data and contacts and such, and now when attempting to start up it freezes on the apple logo when the spinner thing is going around.

    Am I screwed and have to upgrade to 4.1 now? :[

    Tried to put into DFU mode and reinstall 4.0.1 but obviously apple doesn't allow that :/

    If you backed up your SHSH blobs with cydia then simply put:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    in your hosts file and try restore again which then will work. Sadly if you didn't backup you will have to update to 4.1

    You had to choose to have your SHSH stored right? Or did it do it automatically?

    Yes, you had to choose to have them backed up. If you don't see them saved at the top of Cydia like my screen cap shows then you are out of luck. And remember for the next time, erase all content and settings erases everything, including the OS.

    I don't understand why they don't allow that? I was able to erase all content on my 3GS before selling it and restore with 4.0.1. file.

    Did you move to itunes 10?

    Sounds like you either did it while Apple was still signing 4.0.1 or you had your hashes saved.

    Doesn't sound like OP bothered to save his hashes and Apple isn't signing 4.0.1 any longer.

    Apple only allow you to restore to the firmwares they class as "current". Therefore, only 4.0.2 at the moment. The window for 4.0.1 closed some time ago. Unless you have your SHSH blobs saved for 4.0.1 you cannot restore to that version.
    It is nothing to do with iTunes 10.
