little help updating from 4.0 to 4.1 on 1/1/11
Hey group, I am late to the game. I am still on 4.0 and jailbroken. I am having issues (safari wont save passwords, tipb wont open from my saved icon on the home page)
so, I need to be jailbroken, so I thought I would just update from 4.0 to 4.1 and then jailbreak.
I have my SHSH saved
I downloaded the 4.1 file
I have tiny umbrella opened.
I have the phone in DFU
I hold shift and click restore in itunes. I choose the 4.1 file
I have the 126.96.36.199 gs.apple.com in my host file
itunes goes through the steps. I get the "preparing phone for restore"
The phone reboots, I get the apple logo and the restore status bar
it start to restore, then hangs.
it will stay like that for a few mins, then times out and I get an error message. 1603. I searched the web and tried a few suggestions including removing my sim card
still no progress.
Am I missing something?
