    Hello guys this is my first post on here and I feel that there is no other website best suited to help me. I'm not new to jailbreaking but I have been out of the loop for quite some time (since 3.1.2 was out! lol) I recently bought a 3gs brand new from Apple with 4.0.2 already on it so I'm assuming it has the new bootrom seeing how I was never able to fully determine that. My question is can I jailbrake/downgrade to 4.0.1 to jailbreak? If so how? I've heard different things all over that I can and I cant or I have to have shsh from a previous firmware. I have no shsh as of yet other than the one I saved recently with tiny umbrella which was 4.0.2 and I kept getting an error >> The Firmware Umbrella - v4.00.06 by semaphore >> Connect a device to continue... >> NOT running as administrator - Cannot listen on port 80! TSS Server will not work! >> Device Detected - Device: INVALID X.X.X (XXXX) Model: MC640LL/A Name: Cory’s iPhone Baseband: 05.13.04 - 6.4_M3S2 Any help would be greatly appriciated. Am I stuck till a new jailbreak comes out or is there anything I can do??

    Without SHSHs you cant downgrade. You also currently cant jailbreak on 4.0.2.

    Sorry but youre stuck for now.

    The reason for the TU error is that you have to run the program as administrator.

    By the way, did you try asking Cydia for your 4.0.1 SHSH? If you did and it said no, the Dough's link won't help you, but if it said yes, it will work.

    It still gives the error "Not running as admin"? That's odd.

    I know it's weird believe me but I am running as admin for sure no question about it and it still pops the error but when I check it it says that my shsh is saved. But I can't run the TSS server any other ideas??

    Just to clarify you right clicked on tinyumbrella and clicked run as admin? Also you need to check the advanced tab in tu then select what host you want to use whether it be cydia or local. Also do all of this before starting Itunes up and have the phone in dfu mode.

    Ok well I see that there's nothing I can do until the new JB comes out so I guess I'm in chillin status till that happens. By the way, does anyone know the status of said jailbreak?? Like how much longer the wait will be?? Thanks. Metal 4 ever

    This is just embarrasing to ask but how do I know if I saved my SHSHs. I did pressed make my life easier on cydia back then on my iPhone but then I restored it to 4.0.2 so is there any chance of recovering my SHSHs ?

    Download tinyumbrella from here The Firmware Umbrella then connect your phone to it and click show me my saved shsh files.

    First I'd like to say that i only joined this site so i can post this friendly comment. Video tutorial worked perfectly with no errors, i used a non Jailbroken iPhone3Gs 32GB on 4.02 and went into DFU mode exactly like the guy did it in the vid. And restored to 4.0. I was looking everywhere to jailbreak on 4.02, i was so close to giving up, until i decided to see if i can downgrade from 4.02, this site is awesome thanks. I cant remember how i found this site but thanks especially to Dough Boy for the vid. link. Hopefully more ppl will find this video helpful. Multiple Thumbs Up!

    What device are you trying to downgrade? And what ios is it on?
    And have you downloaded the firmware restore from iPod, iPhone and iPad Firmware Download BTW i used/downloaded the iphone3gs 4.0 restore, and once i had 4.0 running on my device i was able to jailbreak/unlock my iphone with jailbreakme.modmyi.com
