    When trying to jailbreak I keep getting a error through I tunes saying "the iphone cannot be restored at this time because the iphone software update server is unavailable ".

    I remember making some changes to my system when they stopped signing previous packages but cant find what I did. Any help or ideas?

    You might've edited your hosts file accidentally (& wrongly).

    It's trying to connect to the Apple server to verify the installation of the firmware...and unable to reach it.

    1. Make sure you are connected to the internet
    2. Check your hosts file for any changes

    I leave my hosts set to set cydia all the time via tiny and I don't have this problem.

    leave it original apple servers if you are going to use Pwnage Tool for your custom fw, just make sure you press option + restore to select your custom fw.

    This is what my host file looks like

    # 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
