    Cannot restore iphone 4 running 5.1.1 and absinthe 2.0

    Well to edit your hosts files, you first need to right click on HOSTS to properties and uncheck read only. Then open with notepad and search for "gs.apple.com". I deleted 2 files, click save and change file type to all files. That will save it. Took me alot of trying to do that. So i rebooted...

    Yeah well I thought it was that easy as well. And I read in a post that you can either use tiny umbrella OR manually edit the hosts files yourself. I'll try editing them myself when I get home and get back to you.

    Cannot restore iphone 4 running 5.1.1 and absinthe 2.0

    Well, I followed the tutorial step by step, so how can i find out I saved them? So you mean I cannot restore at all? I read another thread where you keep tinyumbrella running and connect to tss server then connect to itunes and restore. Now I come up with error 11. So frustrating.
