    I decided to downgrade back from iOS5 beta 4 back to iOS4. I have a registered UDID, but my iPhone wont restore back to any firmware. I tried putting it into DFU mode and restoreing to 4.2.10, and back to iOS 5 beta 4. I'm stuck at the connect to itunes screen. Everytime i try i get the error " iPhone could not be restored becuase this device isn't eligible for this build. When i try to go back to 4.2.10 I get itunes error (1)? I also have all my SHSH blobs saved, and my itunes is on beta 4, and if it matters i have xcode, but my device wont show up because it needs to be restored. PLEASE i need help i haven't a clue what to do next !

    Try removing gs.apple.com from /etc/hosts if it's there, run 'dscacheutil -flushcache', restate iTunes and then try to downgrade to 4.2.10.

    can you be a little more specific, im not sure what i should remove. I just upgraded to OS X Lion today and i don't want to fudge anything up. Thanks.

    This is my Hosts file.

    4.2.10 didn't restore. It said something about not being eligible for this build.
    I'm going to try to put it back to iOS 5 beta 4 and then downgrade via xcode.
    Also i put the iPhone into DFU mode everytime i try to restore it.

    I have successfully restored my iPhone 4 CDMA from iOS 5 beta 4 to 4.2.8 using tiny umbrella and the 4.2.1 tiny umbrella fix on a Mac. I am going to look for the tutorial and post it here for future reference.
