    Have you tried with tiny umbrella? IIRC, you don't have to edit a host file.

    why should i use tiny umbrella when i am on ios4.1 and want to restore to ios 4.1 i thinks it is used only when downgrading from a higher firmware version to a lower fw version

    Apple is not signing 4.1 anymore, which means they don't allow 4.1 as a valid OS version. That's why you need you SHSH saved and TU to act as the host.

    I just upgraded from 4.0 to 4.1 last night and had to use TU. Thankfully, several months ago, I saved off my SHSH like I was told to do - even though I had no idea WTF they were back then.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You cannot restore to anything but the latest firmware out and that's 4.2.1 unless you use TU or edit your hosts to point to Cydia and hope you have 4.1 shsh

    By Downgrading from the "Current" firmware, current firmware is 4.2.1, if you are on 4.1 and want to go to 4.1 as far as SHSH goes you are downgrading.
