    Ensure tiny umbrella is not setting your hosts file towards cydia.

    don't run tiny umbrella for restore , under adv tab , uncheck set hosts file to cydia and close it . update iTunes to 10.5 and do ur restore .

    you want your iOS 5 be verified by apple , if you are restoring to custom firmware , you need to put iphone into pwned dfu mode.

    Yes, I use the Redsn0w click ong the Pwned dfu option then follow the instruction to put the phone to DFU mode. After that I launch itunes and hold option + restore (Mac) then pick the custom file. After it extract out then it pop up the error msg like I mentioned above.

    Reboot your mac again. Did you create your custom fw ?

    I did use redsn0w to create the custom fw. I don't know maybe something to do with itunes or not.
