    I tried modifying my host file, as below, so it would allow me to restore my iphone with saurik's server vs apple, which as you probably know, refuses to allow you to restore to 4.01.

    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    #74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com



    I need help if I edited this file incorrectly, please help...thanks!

    You need to remove the hash (#) before the last line. That comments out that line so it has no effect. Probably TinyUmbrella made that change.

    Remove the # in the last line.

    The # is a character that signifies the text afterward is ignored by the system.

    stuck in endless "iphone is in recovery mode"

    changes made to host file, thanks, but error message is "iphone is in recovery mode", which appears as endless loop.I'm confused,as I thought it would not go to apples servers, but allow me to bypass them,and install 4.01. Am I missing a step? all help appreciated.

    You just need to hold down shift, click restore, and choose the version you wish to restore to. If all else fails, put it in DFU mode first.
