    Now you need to edit your etc/hosts:

    1) Start -> Run -> CWindows\System32\drivers\etc
    2) Right click "hosts" and click "Open" when the Open With box appears, select Notepad
    3) Comment out 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com if it exists by putting a # in front so it looks like:
    #74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    4) Add this to a new line at the bottom: 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
    5) Save the file

    also take a look here

    Remove this (#) from the front of 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    and remove 127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com and aave file.

    Now we need to enter DFU Mode to downgrade.

    1) Plug up iPhone to computer.
    2) Switch your iPhone off.
    3) Hold power and home together for *exactly* 10 seconds
    4) Release power but keep holding home until the pc beeps as a USB device is recognized.
    Note: At this point nothing should be showing on the screen - if you see a picture of the iTunes logo and a USB cable, you did it wrong so try again.
    5) When iTunes opens and tells you your phone is in Recovery mode, hold down shift (Windows) option (Mac) then click Restore.
    6) Now browse to the firmware you need to restore.
    7) After selecting it, click Open.

    If you are restoring from 3.1 with the 04.26.08 baseband the restore should complete successfully and you can ignore the bit about the error (1015) you do not need to restore twice, just go ahead and jailbreak as explained below.

    If you are downloading from 3.1 with the updated (05.11.07) baseband, you need to use the above method to restore your phone twice.

    That guide is for two different ways. You dont need your ECID because you said that you had them said on sauriks server.

    it wont let me put it in DFU. everytime i turn it off while its plugged up it immediately turns back on.

    and now when i go to that file, "127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com" is there (i will delete it) but "74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com" is nowhere to be found on there.

    Try this unplug the phone and hold down the power and home button for 10 sec., then let go of the power button while still holding the home button and plug the cable into the phone.

    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com is sauriks server. And that is where your ECID SHSH files are saved.

    ok i DFU'd it before it turned back on and my computer beeped, itunes recognized it, and the screen on the phone is black with nothing there, its just black. is that right?
    Yes...cheers half way home.

    No you need itunes to look to saurik server for the ECID SHSH files or it will not go through.

    ok so i wont go through that whole thing since i dont need to.

    this is what i have in my hosts folder:

    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

    and in my hosts.txt i have this:

    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #

    No thats from my mac.

    Try this...Open cmd.exe, and run ping gs.apple.com
    It should respond:

    Pinging gs.apple.com

    It should say 74.208.105.171 over with 56bytes or 32bytes if it don't then you don't have the /etc/hosts setup correctly.

    when i did that it said 74.208.105.171 instead of 72.208.105.171. but it did have 32bytes so one thing was right. how do i correct those numbers that were wrong?

    I'm sorry it should say 74.208.105.171....I made a typo on the last post.

    1) Start -> Run -> CWindows\System32\drivers\etc
    2) Right click "hosts" and click "Open" when the Open With box appears, select Notepad
    3) Comment out 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com if it exists by putting a # in front so it looks like:
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    4)skip
    5) Save the file

    No, keep on trying.
    You got the phone in DFU mode so it can be restored...you need to make sure that you are using the correct firmware, and that you pc has itunes lookingg to saurik server.
