    Inaccurate. The two solutions you posted were the FaceTime fixes (which did not work for me), NOT the re-JB solution/steps. On re-JBing all you said was that was "common knowledge" and did not offer the steps initially. That is all I was trying to point out in my post, how I was able to fix my crashes FT. You and I just don't seem to convey our thoughts to each other well. In any case, thanks for your help and for toning down your "genius" so people who don't have your same level of expertise with iPhone 4 JBing can understand. Now, please reply with the steps to get our SHSH files backed up to Cydia via Tiny Umbrella as if you were explaining to a five year old. LOL!

    Armani22, I owe you an apologie. After going back on this forum I realized you had been kind enough to help me with a few pointers and I, for lack of experience on these forums, failed to notice your help. It now makes sense why you, understandably, were frustrated with me for bringing something up which you had already addressed.

    Can you please explain the steps to take if my SHSH files are for 4.0.1 and I have to restore my phone after 4.1? Thanks!

    No Problem, things do get mixed up in translation..
    To backup your SHSH so that you can downgrade after a 4.1 update, which should be showing up soon, First go to this site

    The Firmware Umbrella

    on the right of the page there are the downloads, get the version for either mac or windows, download the file.
    Go ahead and connect your iphone to your pc and start Tiny Umbrella, you will see on top it says save SHSH and that is all you need to click, you may have to do this more than once to get the files saved to Cydia, It may say SHSH file found and saved locally and sent to Cydia but pending, which means when you open Cydia on top It will say Pending which means your file is in a waiting list and Cydia will or should store it. You will know when it has been done when you open Cydia and it says this device has a 4.0 or 4.01 SHSH saved. So now If your unhappy with any future upgrade you can use Cydia to downgrade back to your original firmware.... within Tiny Umbrella there is a advanced tab, where you can use a pull down menu to change the Server from Cydia to Apple, I suggest that you save a copy of your SHSH to apples server just in case Cydia stops taking new files, An Apple Shsh save is not as easy to restore your phone as Cydia but you can still do it, and that is better than being stuck with nothing....
    Hope This helps...

    Excellent, the only thing I have left to do of the steps you provided is to copy my SHSH to apple's server. Cydia does have my 4.01 file saved. Thanks a whole bunch for your help!

    Actually right now it is down, but should be back up anytime now, though If you were getting to the installer crashed screen, the page was working at the time. That is typically an error you get when you try to jailbreak a jailbroken phone?
    If not keep trying when the page is back up....
    here are some tweets that show it went down over 12 hours ago and should be back up ...

    Jailbreakme was broken today because I fail at sysadminning. Should be up now or when caches expire. about 1 hour ago via web

    jailbreakme should be fixed by end of day. Meantime, use Umbrella http://is.gd/dGOMP to backup SHSHs for any new iPhones about 12 hours ago via web <LI class="hentry u-MuscleNerd status" jQuery1282023069222="26">
