    Dear Members,

    I would really appreciate if anyone could tell me what to do.
    Here's the situation:
    1-Had 4.2.1 jailbroken with greenpois0n
    2-Wanted to upgrade to 4.3.3
    3-Downloaded tinyumbrella and saved my SHSH for 4.2.1 and i seem to also have SHSH for 4.3.3
    4-In tinyumbrella, I clicked on "start tss server"
    5-Launched iTunes and "option-clicked" restore and selected the 4.3.3 8J2.ipsw that I downloaded from the internet.
    6-The restore process continued until it said "restoring firmware"
    7-The dreaded 1013 error message popped up
    8-I modified the /etc/hosts file by going to terminal and deleted the two lines that had the gs.apple.com reference and saved the file
    9-I did steps 4 and 5 above again and the dreaded 1013 error message popped up again.

    Now I have a bricked phone and I really don t want to update to 4.3.4 because I won t have access to an untethered jailbreak. Please help me. I have done so much research but I really don t know what to do.

    :-(

    Can you do that on a Mac?


    I don t have a windows machine. I have a mac. Is there a similar procedure to do that?

    How someone can use so many ellipses dots is astounding.

    Use Pwnagetool. It's better anyway.

    Ok so I managed to get it back to 4.2.1 I don t even know how. I did the procedure described in tinyumbrella s website for preserving it baseband. So my iPhone is no longer bricked and it is still jailbroken using greenpois0n.

    But I guess I really want to upgrade to 4.3.3 How do I use the Pwnagetool to upgrade to 4.3.3 ? or is that something I cannot do?

    I don t seem to be able to restore to 4.3.3 from 4.2.1 from iTunes at all... Using Tinyumbrella servers like I described in my first post?

    I actually barely know what I am doing.
