    I was planning to restore and the re-jailbreak my 3gs on 4.0.1
    Cydia says I have SHSHs on 4.0 and 4.0.1 so I thought all good.
    On iTunes I Option>Clicked>Restore but the iPhone Software folder that opened was empty meaning I couldn't continue :confused:

    Any ideas??

    Right, I downloaded the firmware and tried again.
    iTunes said this device isn't eligible for the requested build even though it's the exact same one already installed on my iphone :confused:

    Repost X per day. :D

    Download and 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 downgrade 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 downgrade to.
    7) Start "TSS server," download firmware file somewhere (google) and restore through iTunes with that file.
    8) If you phone get stuck during restore, trying "Kick out of recovery..."'in Tinyumbrella.

    Make sure you start tinyumbrella with administrator privileges, as it automatically modifies the hosts file (which requires elevated privileges)

    I am the administrator on my Macbook but when I run Tinyumbrella it says
    "your hosts file is not editable - Cannot listen on port 80! TSS Server will not work!"
    That is something beyond my limited knowledge
