    I have a 3GS and I am a PC user, soon to change, so if I had a mac we wouldn't be having this discussion. I am currently running 4.0.1 and I am having some funky problems. I downloaded ios 4.0.1 from redmondpie and proceeded to do a shift restore only to get the good ole 3194 error. Can I get around this to restore to the old 4.0.1 to use jailbreakme.com? I really don't want to wait for snowbreeze to jailbreak on 4.1,and I don't need an unlock.

    Thanks for any advice

    That means one of two things. You don't have your SHSHs saved so you get error 3194. Or you have your SHSHs and you aren't running TinyUmbrella's TSS server (or manually edit your host file) while restoring.

    If you don't need an unlock, why don't you upgrade to 4.1? Jailbreak it with Limera1n or Greenpois0n.

    I heard Limera1n had some battery issues is this true?

    I have been trying to get cydia to save my shsh blobs but I can't find the option in cydia for some reason.

    Then use Greenpois0n instead?

    I used Limera1n while it was in beta and it's fine. I have 2 iPhones and used Limera1n and they're just great.

    Oh yeah, you can't save any SHSHs except for 4.1 at this time, so if you didn't save 4.0.1 like two or three months ago, you can't get them now.

    You can run tiny umbrella , plug your iphone in and highlight your device and click save shsh , then all shsh will be saved in future.

    Can I save them locally and do it?

    Read my post, one before this, this is how you save your shsh blogs locally.

    I think we were posting at the same time sorry. I suppose I could just try the limera1n jailbreak on 4.1.

    So basically I have no choice of firmware since my shsh weren't saved before 4.1 came out even though I am still on 4.0.1?

    That is correct, you can only save shsh blogs at the time Apple is signing the firmware.
    Example : If you have a 3gs and your firmware is 3.0 and you want to jailbreak. Apple is now signing 4.1 . You jailbreak your 3.0 and you click Make My life easier, then Cydia will look for shsh , Cydia can only look for the current shsh which is 4.1, you have the same situation .

    In your case, it doesn't really matter to you because you do not need an unlock.

    Ok I understand now. So I will upgrade to 4.1 and rejailbreak with limera1n. Sounds like the battery issue I heard about with that jailbreak is false because a lot of users seem to be having success with limera1n.
