    Just run TU, start the TSS server, open iTunes, shift-restore or option-restore and pick the 4.0.1 .ipsw file. You don’t need to be in DFU mode.

    Try the "kick out of recovery mode" on TU after you restore. Worth a shot.

    If you don't have your SHSH saved locally but have it on Cydia, you can just restore using Saurik's original method -- by manually editing your hosts file.

    Aekara?
    I think when you restore using tinyumbrella when the process finishes and gives you an error you might have to click kick device out of recovery.
    Either that or edit your itunes hosts file like mentioned above and restore it to the official 4.0.1

    4 step simplified version of Sauriks original restore method:

    Step 1: Make sure your SHSH are saved by opening Cydia, and looking at the top of the homescreen.

    Step 2: Download firmware for your device. http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=750

    Step 3: Edit your hosts file to include this line:
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    On Windows: Open Notepad as an administrator. The hosts file is in windows\system32\drivers\etc\ The file does not have an extension, so change option to All Files to find it. For mac, go here: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=7556

    Step 4: Open itunes, click your iphone, hold shift (option for mac) and click restore. Find your firmware and perform the restore. If your hosts file was edited right, and your SHSH backed up, iTunes will receive authorization and proceed with restore

    Pull your blobs from cydia over to your computer in advanced options?

    Come on, people. Please read the original post a bit more carefully. Because he in stuck in DFU mode and doesn't know his ECID, he cannot use TinyUmbrella to download his blobs. TU won't recognize his iPhone when connected. That's the whole point of this thread.

    yea that seems to be the problem mate!! I can't use TU to get the SHSH saved on the pc but they are saved on the cydia server and the original method wouldn't work for some reason!! it gives me an error after the extraction of the firmware and b4 the restore starts!

    yeah, your just going to have to manually edit your hosts file.. do u need the phone unlocked?? if not just update to 4.1.. tinyunbrella will then be able to read your phone and download they keys, and downgrade to 4.0 or whateva you want to downgrade 2

    "[A]n error" doesn't tell us much. What is the exact error message? Have you double-checked to make sure your changes to your hosts file saved? What is the complete name of the firmware file you are trying to use?

    as already mentioned, you need to use the manual way in order to get your SHSHs, since TU is won't be able to see your phone. If you share a screenshot or tell us what's the error you are getting you can guide you better on what is going wrong.
