I was getting this error. Didn't use TinyUmbrella - but I did edit the hosts file because of TinyUmbrella previously. Basically, I just deleted the line:
Also had to uninstall WiFi Sync from the computer.

Thanks for all of the suggestions, but i did many of them. for example i removed itunes and installed the latest version, i followed the host solution which i found on another site, but there was no apple entry in there. i tried a different computer that never had i tunes and still i was unable to restore.But i followed BrianT suggestion and it worked like charm. I never knew you can use tinnyUmbrella to kick your iphone from DFU mode.

What amazes me is the first time I had this issue with my 3gs I called in to both att and apple to tech support and no one even thought to have me check the host file. I had to take it in to an apple store and ended up getting a brand spanking new 3gs! It amazes me that we have more educated people in our forums that the companies have in their tech support teams!! And of course being able to take the initiative and search for answers always helps as well! But i'm glad that I can use my mac when it comes to restoring, upgrading etc with no hiccups.

I had this problem last night. I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, tried to make sure that I was in DFU mode instead of recovery mode, etc. I had tried to restore at least 6 times, and I kept getting this error. I was getting ready to try removing that line from the host file when, BAM, my iphone was restored with 4.1. Then I tried to restore from my backup from 2 hours earlier, and I got an error saying that there was something wrong with the backup. I clicked out of the error, and itunes went ahead and restored from the backup, and I have all of my folders, photos, podcast, etc just like it should be.
I don't know why or how it all worked out, but it was a very frustrating evening. I was going to jailbreak after the update, but I was so tired and relieved to have a working iphone that I decided to get some sleep and try again another day. Whew!

I was getting ready to Jailbreak and went to restore my phone and received this error. I used TinyUmbrella to get me out of recovery mode and all is well at this point. Just makes me nervous now to jailbreak.
Do you think I will run into any problems?

What if I want to upgrade then?
Also what do I do now? I wasn't able to restore to my backup. Kept asking for password that I never set up or forgot. Got nervous so I synced.
If tiny umbrella isn't installed on the phone why would it block me from updating?
Do I have to remove the software on the comp to ever update?
Sorry for all the questions not in order.

- TinyUmbrella is never installed on your phone, it is a computer side program that is used to save your SHSH blobs in order for downgrading iOS firmware. It can also be used for the iPhone4 to block modem upgrades so that you can unlock your phone. If you want to upgrade, simply dont use TU.
- TSS server is used to mimick Apple Servers so that iTunes verifies iOS installation when wanting to downgrade. It must be turned on for this verification to occur.
- TinyUmbrella or JB for that matter have nothing to do with restoring from backup or syncing with iTunes.

OK, here is the thing. I did not have TU open when I went to restore to factory settings, but I received the error when trying to restore.
I figured out the back up was my fault, had the password on and forgot what it was. I have since attempted the restore again and received the error once again (TU not open on Comp). Is that supposed to happen?
Also will I get the error if I ever want to upgrade the software when it is released?
Sorry noob and not understanding what I thought I did.
