    Hi there

    Today I noticed a small adjustment in Saurik's article Caching Apple's Signature Server.

    The new entry in your etc/hosts file is now
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    Instead of the earlier
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    Perhaps just an additional server to the old one. But maybe good if someone could verify whether the old one (.105.171) still works?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the info.

    I wish there was a way to acquire the SHSHSadfjsoa;fhdos;a files without having a jb.
    I'm on 3.1.3, 3rd gen, and i didn't realize you had to get those files XP

    ok so both ips work ! just enter them in your browser *tada*

    any way looks lyk apple found out this hack and has changed things a bit maybe...

    looks like they using a https connection with the address to albert.apple.com on port 443.hmm i also see itunes making a "gs.apple.com" connection aswell ???? idk

    (Im using itunes 9.1.1)

    Well I have started my downgrade from 3.1.3 using saurik.com info (Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)). I have downloaded the .ipsw file (iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore) and put in the first IP (74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com) in my host file. I had to allow permisions before it would allow my saves. Held the shift key down picked the file and just said apple could not connect. I then put in a second IP that I noticed here on the forum(74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com).
    Still nothing.

    Now, this is my first attempt to downgrade so I can jailbreak my phone 3GS. I have the MC model and am thinking the newer bootrom.
    I am running Windows 7 and also tried sn0wbreezeV1.5.2 with no luck after telling me that my phone would not work.

    Any ideas on how to get this going, or am I like so many I have read about and just have to wait till Dev Team comes up with a way to jailbreak my 3GS?

    Thank you all so much!!

    You jailbroke and clicked "make my life easier" sometime after early Feb. Apple stopped signing 3.1.2 right at the beginning of that month, so even though your phone had it installed, there was no way for Cydia to get 3.1.2 signatures on file for you.

    With a 3G[S] and a new bootrom, you can not restore to 3.1.2.

    If you don't need an unlock, restore to a clean 3.1.3 and Spirit
