    You should be running as admin by default then. Your hosts file may not have the right permissions set on it. What exactly are you trying to do?

    You can find your model number in settings/general/about

    What SHSH does tiny umbrella say you have?

    Ok, so if you want to jailbreak then I would suggest 4.1 and jailbreak with greenpoison. Have you tried running the tss server or is that greyed out?

    Have you tried to edit the hosts file manually?
    2011-01-17 12:37 AM
  14. gordonmerrick's Avatar
    yes but that same error pop-up appeared saying my hosts folder is not writable

    "Cannot Start TSS Service
    CWINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts is not writable!"

    should i un-check the box in properties that says read-only?

    I'm having the same problem. Trying to upgrade my jailbroken iPod Touch 3g from 3.1.3 to 4.0 (iPod3,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw). Cydia and TinyUmbrella show SHSH on file for 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.2.1 and 4.2b3. Started TinyUmbrella, then started TSS server. Log shows requests being received and returned. Then during the verification phase I get "The iPod [touch] could not be updated. An unknown error occurred (21)." I can see that my hosts file was updated to route requests through TSS. Any ideas?
