    All this time, you've been trying to load 4.3.3. That will never load because you don't have the SHSH blob for it.

    It's not worth it to understand why you're getting that error, since it won't work anyway.
    According to what you just reported, 4.1 is your only choice.

    Back on post #16, you were loading 4.3.3 with the error.

    ...Im using the standard 4.3.3 firmware, ...
    I can't follow if it keeps changing

    When did you do that? Look back in this thread, we never tried 4.1 before?

    So what does error 28 tell you?

    Good. That's what it says. Ugggg.

    But let's try again. Reloading 4.1. But instead of me telling you....... YOU TELL ME HOW YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT.
    Be detailed ... and I will correct if necessary.

    Error 28 is definitely a hardware issue, looks like you need to go to apple store and buy an iphone 4, maybe wait till September and get an iphone 5, yippie..lol

    That's definitely a hardware error. Twice with an apple signed firmware 4.1
    Note: For 4.1...... Tiny Umbrella is not needed (at the moment) ... so skip that step and try again for the 3rd time.

    No idea. But it will be cheaper than a new one.
