    Default How to jailbreak

    What's the difference between jailbreaking and unlocking?

    • Jailbreaking means removing restrictions in your device's default software so that it can run third-party apps and extensions (themes and tweaks) not approved by Apple.
    • Unlocking is the process that allows an iPhone to be used as a phone on other carriers that aren't supported, such as an AT&T iPhone being used for texting and calling on a T-Mobile plan with a T-Mobile SIM card (for example).

    Default How to jailbreak

    Does Jailbreaking upgrade my firmware?

    • Depends on the jailbreaking method, most jailbreak tools require you already be at the supported firmware version, however jailbreaking with custom firmware (PwnageTool and Sn0wbreeze) will also put your device on the jailbroken firmware version, so it is in a way an upgrade+jailbreak if you started with a lower firmware version.

    How do I build a custom firmware?

    • Download PwnageTool (Mac only) or sn0wbreeze (Windows only) and the firmware of your device that the tool can jailbreak (iOS 4.2.6 through 4.3.3 excluding 4.3 and iPad 2 at this time). Open the tool, select the firmware, then chose how you wish to go about it.
    • You can preserve the baseband of the iPhone and/or hacktivate. If you activate by official carrier sim deselect hacktivation. If you don't have official carrier sim you need to hacktivate.
    • The custom firmware will be built (usually about 5 minutes) and will be placed on the desktop. The tool will then give you steps to enter PWNED DFU mode. Then open iTunes, hold shift, then click restore, and select the firmware on your desktop.

    Where can I get more information about jailbreaks / iOS / firmwares.. etc etc ?

    Where can I find a step-by-step guide to jailbreaking my iDevice?

    How do I remove my jailbreak?

    • Simple fix. Plug your device into your computer, open iTunes, let your device sync and back up, then click restore. After restore your device will reboot, then iTunes will give you the option to choose which to restore from. The first one is usually the one you want, unless you want to restore to an older backup. Click continue and then let your apps, music, and pictures sync.
    • If you have an iPhone with iPad baseband, you need to restore with a custom firmware, sn0wbreeze can create a custom firmware that is not jailbroken in baseband preservation mode only.

    How do I enter DFU mode?

    • With your device connected to your computer, hold the power (lock) button and home button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but keep holding the home button for another 15 seconds.
    • If you'd rather see a video tutorial, you can go here.

    What's DFU mode?

    • It's "Device Firmware Upgrade" mode. In DFU mode, the computer interacts directly with the bootrom, the only bit of firmware that cannot be upgraded, so it's a prime target for exploits. We use it to enter a jailbreakable state (if a bootrom exploit is available for the device) and to restore custom firmwares.

    What's PWNED DFU mode?

    • DFU mode after the bootrom has been exploited to allow custom firmware to be restored to the device.
    • You can use redsn0w or iReb to put your device into pwned DFU mode. In redsn0w, look under the "Extras" menu for the pwned DFU button.
    • You can do this to devices including A4 devices and earlier (including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation). There is not yet any way to put A5 (or later) devices (including iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and iPad 3rd generation) into pwned DFU mode, since we don't yet have a bootrom exploit for them.

    How to put your iDevice into Pwned DFU mode using Redsn0w

    • Download Redsn0w here:

    redsn0w 0.9.14b2 (Windows — run in Administrator Mode)
    redsn0w 0.9.14b2 (OS X)

    • Connect the iPhone3GS to the computer
    • Turn it off
    • Launch Redsn0w
    • Go Extras-> Pwned DFU-> Next

    the instructions will be given in screen as…

    2 seconds holding the power button
    10 seconds holding the power/home key simultaneously
    release power only hold home for another 10 seconds

    Suddenly computer give sound for identifying new device,
    The iPhone should have a black screen

    You are successfully entered into pwned DFU mode.

    Default How to jailbreak

    What's a tethered jailbreak?

    • A tethered jailbreak is a jailbreak where the device requires a computer to assist booting up. If the device's battery dies, or you turn off the device, or you reboot it, you're going to be stuck at the Apple logo until you plug the device into a computer, open the tethered boot program (for example redsn0w), and follow its instructions.

    How much longer do I have to wait for an untethered jailbreak for iOS x.x.x or an unlock for baseband xx.xx.xx?

    I have an iPad 2, can I jailbreak it?
    • Yes, but only on iOS 4.3.3. Go to jailbreakme.com in Safari on your iPad 2 and click Install.
    • If you get the error "There was a problem downloading the jailbreak files," then you need to go to Settings -> Safari, clear History and Cache, and then try again.
    • Also, make sure JavaScript is on. You can turn it on in Settings>Safari>JavaScript! The jailbreak won't start if JavaScript is off for example, the install button would be unresponsive!

    What are the prerequisites for running Greenpois0n successfully?

    Before running greenpois0n do the following:

    • Make sure you downloaded greenpois0n from here http://greenpois0n.com/
    • Latest greenpois0n RC6.1 supports device that are at iOS version 4.2.1 only
    • Connect your iDevice to your computer.
    • Once connected turn your iDevice Off by holding the down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" comes up, then slide to power off :-)
    • Extract the greenpois0n.exe from the zip file to a folder on your computer.

    In order for greenpois0n to run successfully the first time, you need the following:

    • Latest iTunes should be installed, this provides the required drivers for your device.
    • The computer on which you are running greenpois0n needs to have a good, non-proxied broadband internet connection, this is needed as greenpois0n downloads a couple of payload files (the iBSS and kernelcache of your device firmware) from apple.
    • Run greenpois0n from the folder where you extracted it, this will help you in case you need to re-run it and need to delete the payload files.

    If for some reason the first run didn't work and you are trying again, check the folder in which you ran greenpois0n for the two payload files iBSS and kernelcache, delete those before trying again as they may be corrupted.

    Also note that greenpois0n rc5, rc6, rc6.1 do not support iPhone 3G, and only support iOS 4.2.1

    Also note that redsn0w 0.9.6RC can successfully jailbreak and untether your device on iOS 4.2.1, and can be sometimes a better solution to avoid the Loader cannot install Cydia successfully issue, which may also make you run redsn0w either way.

    greenpois0n rc3, rc4 support all devices at iOS 4.1

    Where does iTunes store firmware ipsw files it downloads?

    • Depends on your OS, the locations are as follows. Note that you may need to use "iPad Software Updates" or "AppleTV Software Updates" instead of "iPhone Software Updates" depending on your device type:

    On Windows XP:

    • C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\

    On Windows Vista/Windows 7:

    • C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\

    On Mac:

    • ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates


    • After you find these, you may want to copy them somewhere else. Whenever iTunes downloads a new ipsw it will automatically delete any older ones for that device.


    1. On windows, you may have to enable the ability to see hidden files and folders, to do this, open the control panel, click folder options, click the view tab, check show hidden files, folders, and drives, click ok and try again.


    • On OSX Lion, the ~/Library folder is hidden by default. To re-enable it by default, open terminal and type, chflags nohidden ~/Library/ (this prevents having to use the option-key from the Finder's Go menu)

    I have a 1st generation device and I'm on 3.1.2/3.1.3. How do I jailbreak?

    • The two jailbreak toosl that work on both iOS 3.1.2 and iOS 3.1.3 are the Spirit jailbreak and JailbreakMe jailbreak. redsn0w 0.9.3 jailbreaks iOS 3.1.2 and can jailbreak iOS 3.1.3 (only if you point it in 3.1.2's direction). Another quick, one click jailbreak for iOS 3.1.2 is blackra1n.

    Default Jailbreaking errors and troubleshooting

    What are the common reasons for a failing restore?

    A restore may fail under one of the following conditions:

    • Having third-party software installed that interferes with USB function, such as WiFi-Sync
    • Connecting your iDevice to a USB hub instead of directly to the computer
    • Not having internet access for iTunes to authorize the firmware restore
    • Having an older iTunes that doesn't support the firmware file version
    • Not having the required SHSH saved on TinyUmbrella or Cydia server for the firmware file (in case of restore to a non-current version)
    • Using a custom firmware file without putting the device in Pwned DFU mode
    • Having the iPad baseband loaded on iPhone 3G/3GS and trying to restore with stock firmware file
    • Using the wrong firmware file
    • Using a corrupted firmware file
    • You have TinyUmbrella installed and it's set to edit your hosts file, so the restore is trying to use saurik's servers to verify the firmware instead of Apple's servers. (Look under the Advanced tab in TinyUmbrella and uncheck "Set hosts to Cydia".)

    My device won't boot!

    • Hold power and home until you see the Apple logo. Or maybe you should charge your battery more often.

    My device says Connect to iTunes, I keep trying to reboot, but it keeps going back to Connect to iTunes! (Recovery Mode)

    • Download TinyUmbrella, open it, click on your device after plugging it in, then on the top right corner click Exit Recovery. This will kick your device out of recovery mode and reboot into normal mode.
    • If this doesn't work, you probably have to restore, as iTunes suggests.

    Stuck in Recovery loop at 4.2.1 and above with errors 1015 and 1013

    • Firmwares 4.2.1 and above have baseband checks on the Restore Ramdisk. If the modified IPSW (custom firmware) is restored, iTunes will give an Error 1015 and iPhone will be in a recovery mode loop which cannot be exited by TinyUmbrella or the 'setenv auto-boot true' command.
    • Fortunately, the Update Ramdisk does not contain that baseband check so if the Update Method is used (Pwned DFU mode, hold SHIFT+UPDATE), iTunes will give error 1013 and it can be exited by TinyUmbrella and the irecovery command (Normal Exit Recovery).

    After running Greenpois0n, loader/Cydia crashes or Cydia icon is missing, how do I install Cydia?

    • Install Cydia via Redsn0w. You will need a copy of your stock 4.2.1 firmware. If you don't have it, get it here. Choose only "Install Cydia," as pictured below.

    NOTE: If you're on Windows, Redsn0w must be run as administrator, in XP Service Pack 3 (2 in Vista) compatibility mode. Extract the redsn0w.exe to your desktop, don't run it from inside the zip archive.

    • If you're using Windows XP, click redsn0w.exe once to select it, and then hold down the Shift key and right-click redsn0w.exe. You'll see a contextual menu from which you can select Run as... and then choose an administrator account.
    • This will /not/ remove your greenpois0n untether and/or your jailbreak.

    Why am I having trouble jailbreaking my iPhone 3Gs, model A1241 (A1324 China)?

    • Because you have an iPhone 3G. Once you know what you actually have, it's easier to select the proper tool and firmware. See this info.

    Why am I having so much trouble jailbreaking my 8-gig iPod Touch 3G?

    [LIST][*]There's no such animal; you have an iPod Touch 2G. Once you know what you actually have, it's easier to select the proper tool and firmware. See this info.

    Default Jailbreaking errors and troubleshooting

    I'm getting Error 1013, what can I do?

    For iPhone 4 this happens because the iTunes is not getting authorization to update the baseband because your hosts file is changed to preserve baseband by pointing towards Cydia server instead of apple. Note that at this stage the firmware has actually been flashed but not the baseband, if you are at 4.2.1 you can exit this using TinyUmbrella (version 4.21.xx) "Fix Recovery" button or run greenpois0n to jailbreak right there. if you have restored to 4.3.x use fixrecovery43 Win / Mac. For the Windows version, you'll need to download and place this file in the same location as the fixrecovery program..

    If you want the baseband upgrade to continue without the 1013 error, remove the gs.apple.com line from your hosts file, this is how to remove it from the hosts file:

    Mac OS X:

    • Step 1. On your Mac, go to your “Applications” folder.
    • Step 2. Now navigate to the “Utilities” folder.
    • Step 3. Launch "Terminal".
    • Step 4. Type "sudo nano /etc/hosts" (without quotes) and hit return.
    • Step 5. Enter your password
    • Step 6. Use the down arrow key to find the “gs.apple.com” entries. Once the cursor is in front, make sure you comment out the line(s) by entering “#” in front of the text.
    • Step 7. Save the file by pressing CONTROL+O.
    • Step 8. Exit the nano editor by pressing CONTROL+X.
    • Step 9. Restore your iDevice.


    • Step 1. Start –> Programs –> Accessories
    • Step 2. Run Notepad or WordPad (as administrator on windows 7)
    • Step 3. Click “Open..” from File menu.
    • Step 4. Browse to Windows/System32/drivers/etc
    • Step 5. In "files of type:" select all documents
    • Step 6. Open "hosts"
    • Step 7. Either delete all line that has "gs.apple.com", or add a "#" sign at the beginning of the line to comment it out
    • Step 8. Hit Save
    • Step 9. Restore your device

    I keep getting error 1600 in iTunes when flashing the custom firmware, what can I do?

    • Error 1600 means that the device is rejecting the firmware because it is a custom firmware, you need to Pwn the bootrom to avoid this rejection by putting the device in Pwned DFU mode, this can be accomplished using iReb rc4 from http://ih8sn0w.com (iReb is available independently as well as part of sn0wbreeze menu), alternatively also redsn0w can enter a device in Pwned DFU if you only select the "Enter Pwned DFU mode" checkbox.

    I'm getting Error 1015, what can I do?

    • This error appears when downgrading firmwares of iPhone and 3G iPads as the baseband part rejects the downgrade, at this stage the firmware itself has been writen to the iPhone/iPad but not the baseband, you can exit the recovery loop using TinyUmbrella "Exit Recovery" button. Alternatives include iReb, iRecovery or RecBoot to set the auto-boot true.

    iTunes Error Codes with Solutions

    Open this link.

    I'm getting "Failed to get AppleS5L8920XARM7M" on my iDevice when running Greenpois0n. What does this mean?

    • That's the now-classic "I'm on iOS 4.3.x and trying to use greenpois0n" error. Greenpois0n doesn't work on 4.3.x. Use redsn0w. You'll need a copy of your 4.3.x firmware. If you don't have it, get it here. Make sure you have the latest iTunes installed on the computer you're using to jailbreak.
    • Hold home+power until you see the Apple logo, to end the greenpois0n process on your device.
    • If you're on Windows, don't run redsn0w from inside the zip file. Extract the redsn0w.exe to your desktop first.

    Windows 7 and Vista (but not XP)

    • Right-click the redsn0w.exe on your desktop, choose "Properties," go to the "Compatibility" tab, and under "Compatibility mode" tick the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" box and choose Windows XP, with the highest Service Pack listed. At the bottom of the dialog tick the box under "Privilege Level" to "Run this program as an administrator." Click OK.

    It should look like this:

    Double-click redsn0w.exe on your desktop.

    Windows XP only

    • Click redsn0w.exe on your desktop once to select it, and then hold down the Shift key and right-click redsn0w.exe. You'll see a contextual menu from which you can select Run as... and then choose an administrator account.

    I have the iPhone 3G[S] and I'm trying to restore to a custom iPhone3,1_x.x.x_XXXX_Restore.ipsw and iTunes won't let me, what do I do?

    • First of all, iPhone3,1 is the iPhone 4 for AT&T. The iPhone 3G[S] is iPhone2,1. Second of all, you need to be in pwned DFU mode.

    I downloaded the firmware for my device, but it doesn't show up when I browse to it with Redsn0w. Where did it go?

    • Open "My Computer" or any hard drive or folder. From the top menu, choose Tools>Folder options, go to the "View" tab and un-check "Hide extensions for known file types." Click OK. Now browse to your downloaded firmware, which will undoubtedly end with ".zip" and change it to .ipsw and you should be good to go.
    • If you don't have "Tools" or any menu at the top, click the "Organize" button, go to "Layout" and check "Menu Bar." Proceed as above.

    My Verizon iPhone won't activate after a restore and says "unknown" for the MEID.

    • Answer: Your CDMA iPhone isn't using a compatible baseband, and you were probably using the iOS5 betas. You just need to downgrade with an older version of iTunes (pre-10.5) and with a stock ipsw since custom ipsw's preserve the baseband.

    Using iFaith to create a signed custom ipsw

    Thanks to @ih8sn0w for making this great tool!
    • Important to understand that iFaith allows you to restore to your currently installed version ( Now updated to include the use of SAVED tinyumbrella shsh blobs) only, so this is something you'd do to safegaurd yourself in the future should you require a restore but stay at this version. Also no support for iPad2 or old devices (iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G as well as iPhone 3Gs with OLD-BOOTROM).

    UPDATE: August 9th, 2011
    iFaith v1.3 - Release Notes

    For iOS 3.1.x/3.2.x/4.0.x/4.1/4.2.1/4.2.6/4.2.7/4.2.8/4.3/4.3.1/4.3.2/4.3.3

    • DFU Loops were being caused on devices that had the factory certificate. On this new version. When building the signed IPSW. If you were getting a DFU loop, say "NO" to the prompt about using the standard signing certificate.
    • You can now use TinyUmbrella blobs to build a signed IPSW. [Change Filetype in browse dialog to "TinyUmbrella SHSH blobs".]
    • Now adds ECID to beginning of the SHSH filename after dumping.
    • Now adds ECID to beginning of the IPSW filename after being built.
    • Cleaned up code + payload.
    • Its not possible to add iPad 2 support until a bootrom exploit arises.

    Many Thanks to @sbingner & @Sk0ODaT
    Download at: http://iH8sn0w.com

    // iH8sn0w

    • Please note: The latest iFaith will be detected as a Trojan by AVG and possibly other Antivirus programs, this is a false positive and you may have to disable the resident sheild to use iFaith.#
    • Please feel free to correct anything i have written that is incorrect

    • First of all download the latest version of iFaith (windows only for now)
    • Have your device plugged in and powered off.
    • Unzip the file and run the .exe file.

    Part 1: dumping blobs onto your computer

    • You will see a welcome/warning screen, click ok. You are presented with 4 options, you will want to select "dump shsh blobs" if you have not done so previously. A screen will pop up telling you what devices are supported (Apple tV 2, iPad 1, iPhone 3gs, iPhone 4, iPods 3&4), click proceed then more credits, press lets go! Another pop up asking if you are dumping an Apple TV 2, click the appropriate button. Now making sure your device is plugged in AND powered off you can press the START button and put your device into DFU mode. iFaith will now dump your phones current IOS devices shsh blobs onto your hard drive, the process takes about 10 minutes, and for me it seemed to hang on one part of the process but eventually continued so be patient. Once Done iFaith will ask you to save the blobs on your computer, i chose to make a new folder for this. Note that iFaith also stores your blobs on its own remote server. iFaith will take you back to the main menu so you can build your signed IPSW.

    Part 2: Building the IPSW

    • OK, now we want to click on "build signed ipsw", press the "browse for shsh blobs cache" button. An explorer window will open, navigate to the folder that you had saved your blobs into in the previous step, you should see a file that looks like this "iPhone_4-4.3.2_(8H7)-blobs.ifaith", here i am using 4.3.2 but yours will be whichever firmware you are using on your phone. You will now be prompted to browse for the STOCK ipsw for this firmware, there is also the option to have iFaith download it for you if you do not have it on your computer. Select the stock ipsw and iFaith will verify it. iFaith will then build the SIGNED CUSTOM IPSW for you and place it on your desktop. You then can have iFaith put your device into PWN DFU for you if you want to restore your custom ipsw now, or just shut iFaith down if you are just building the ipsw for possible future use. If you are wanting to restore to your new custom firmware just use iReb (included in the iFaith program) to get your phone into PWN DFU, close iFaith, open iTunes, press and hold the shift key and press restore, browse to the signed custom firmware you created with iFaith and press ok, then restore.

    Default Post-jailbreaking troubleshooting

    My battery life is bad after jailbreaking, what can I do about it?

    There are various reasons that battery drain can increase after jailbreaking, with various fixes.

    1. Personal Hotspot/MyWi: Sharing your 3G connection to other devices is a massive battery drain, and if you've just updated to 4.3, you may well be trying out this new feature. Not recommended for long term use without a power source for your iPhone. At least it's got an easy fix--just turn it off.
    2. Simple increased usage: This happens mostly to new users who've never jailbroken before. With all the new things you can do on a jailbroken device, combined with the time spent getting everything set up the way you want it, you're simply using the device far more than you might think. If this is the case, then after a few days, your battery life will come back a bit closer to normal.
    3. Faulty config: Some apps may not be quite configured correctly after the jailbreak, Mail is often a culprit here--it attempts to connect to a mail server, fails in an unexpected way, and simply keeps trying again. So instead of Mail making one connction every 30 minutes (or whatever), it's continually trying to connect. You can test this one by disabling all your email accounts then restart and watch what happens. Fixing this can soemtimes require deleting and re-adding the email account, or sometimes even simply re-saving what you've got.
    4. Faulty apps: It often takes some time for apps to be updated to the latest version of iOS. Most of the time, this isn't a problem--apps either work, or they don't, but sometimes they can have adverse affects such as significantly increased battery use. To find out if this is the case, try disabling or not using specific apps for a few hours, then turn them back on and compare the battery drain. This can be a slow process, but may be the only way to find the culprit. If you manage to find one, you can leave it disabled short term to stop the battery drain, and contact the developer to see if they're working on an update.
    5. Heavy-duty apps: There are always going to be some apps that simply use a lot of CPU/battery. Video wallpapers, animated lockscreens, live clock icons, and so on. It may not be a huge amount of battery use, but it can definitely add up. If you're finding that these apps are draining your battery, you need to decide for yourself whether they're worth it for you.
    6. The Jailbreak: Sometimes it can indeed be the jailbreak process itself which results in the increased battery usage. While the devs try their best, they don't always have access to every possible iOS device model, or may miss some weird bug. If you've tried the above investigation without success, and are still getting huge battery drain even in Safe Mode, no apps running, Mail disabled, and the phone sitting unused for hours, then it could well be the jailbreak at fault. Fixing this may be as simple as a restore and re-jailbreak, or you may be out of luck for your device, and the jailbreak that you're using simply won't work well with your device. If this happens, you might want to try a different jailbreak method, or ask on here, making sure to specify what steps you've taken to reach this point!
    7. If you don't need to have WiFi on during sleep mode, try the Cydia app DePersistWifi. It turns off WiFi when you put your iDevice to sleep, then turns the WiFi on when you wake it up. You may find a significant improvement of battery life during sleep mode. (If you decide you don't like DePersistWifi, use Cydia to uninstall it; don't delete its icon in wiggle mode via Cydelete; that icon is only the settings module for DePersistWifi.)

    A couple of extra tools that can help narrow down battery issues are BatteryLogger and BatteryDetective. BatteryLogger gives you a visual graph showing battery life over time, and BatteryDetective gives you lots of info about the current state of the battery. The Pro version also lets you analyse running apps to give an estimate of how much battery it's using in the background.

    My device stopped working, went back to the lockscreen, and said Springboard crashed. What do I do?

    In some cases, it's a random accident where when you click restart, it'll go back to Springboard and you'll be fine. If you end up back with the same message, you'll need to do some investigation. If you just installed a tweak and respring, it's most likely that tweak, or it's having a conflict with another tweak. Simply remove it. If it was random, check your tweaks. Make sure they're compatible with your device and firmware, if one isn't, it's the reason for your crash, simply remove it.

    Default Downgrading

    Can I downgrade from 4.3.x to 4.3.3? (Or generally upgrade/downgrade from any version to any other version?)

    If you've never jailbroken your device before (or used TinyUmbrella): no, sorry, Apple has a system that tries to prevent each device from being restored to any firmware version except the latest version. (You can try using redsn0w beta to do a tethered jailbreak on iPhones and iPod touches running 4.3.4, 4.3.5, but tethered jailbreaks are very inconvenient and should be avoided unless you're familiar with tethered jailbreaking and want it anyway. Also, if you use TinyUmbrella, make sure you have "set hosts to Cydia on exit" unchecked before trying to jailbreak with redsn0w.) One exception to this rule is that Apple is still signing version 4.1 for the iPhone 3GS.

    If you have jailbroken your device before: you may be able to work around this system and restore to an earlier version, especially if you've used Cydia within the past few months, because opening Cydia automatically saves currently-available firmware signature files (also called "SHSH blobs") from Apple. Exception: you can only downgrade a GSM or CDMA iPad 2 for a limited time (while 4.3.5 is still the latest version of iOS), and it may not work even now. (Tip: if you've previously manually edited your hosts file, place a # symbol in front of any entries for gs.apple.com; this may help ensure a successful restore process.)

    To try downgrading (a process that may bring up various mysterious errors, so be prepared to do further research):

    1. Download and open TinyUmbrella (ignoring any start-up messages), plug your device into your computer (let iTunes make a full sync and backup just in case), click "Save SHSH" in TinyUmbrella, and see if you have any SHSH blobs from firmware versions earlier than 4.3.4 — these blobs will allow you to restore to their corresponding version numbers. (You can try going to the "Advanced" tab and checking or unchecking "Request SHSH from Cydia" to try to find more blobs.)

      Be sure to uncheck "Set hosts to Cydia on exit" and "Request SHSH from Cydia" before attempting the restore. If you are downgrading an iPhone 4 and are not concerned with preserving your baseband (for example, do not check this if you rely on ultrasn0w unlock), check "Update iPhone 4 baseband". Now ensure that iTunes is shut down, and your device is plugged into your computer.

    2. Click "Start TSS Server". Now you can minimize TinyUmbrella, turn your device off, and then put it into DFU mode: hold the power (lock) button and home button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but keep holding the home button for another 15 seconds.
    3. Open iTunes. Your device should be recognized immediately as being in recovery - if not, and if iTunes prompts you to check with the iPhone server, click "Check", and then your device should be recognized as being in recovery.
    4. Then hold down the Shift key (Windows) or Option key (Mac), and click "Restore".
    5. iTunes will ask you for the firmware file (also called "IPSW file") for the version that you want. You may be able to find this firmware file, named something like iPhone3,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw ("DeviceNameX,X_FirmwareVersion_XXX_Restore.ips w") on your computer, or you can just download a copy of the correct file using the links on The iPhone Wiki.
    6. After the restore process finishes, you may get an error with the code "1015". This is expected - just go back to TinyUmbrella and click "Exit Recovery Mode". (If that does not work, you can put your device into DFU mode and try the "Fix Recovery" button in TinyUmbrella, and if you are still stuck in recovery, download the stand-alone "fixrecovery" tool from the TinyUmbrella website. You will get two files: one is 421 (for 4.2.1 firmware), and one is fixrecovery43 which you should use if you are downgrading to 4.3.3. You may get an error mentioning that you need "zlib1.dll" - download it here and place it in the fixrecovery folder.)
    7. Your device should now reboot and be normal. You can now jailbreak your device again! Or you may have run into various other errors during this process - try searching JailbreakQA, because somebody else has probably run into the same problem before you.

    Troubleshooting tips: One common error message is 3194, which means that the restore failed because your device does not seem to have SHSH blobs available for the version you're trying to restore - are you sure you followed all these steps correctly? Finding your device stuck with errors 1013, 1015, or 1600 (after trying "Exit Recovery Mode" and "Fix Recovery") may mean that you have one of a variety of problems: you didn't put your device in DFU mode before pressing "Restore", your device has a non-standard baseband for its firmware so you need to restore using a custom firmware (make one using PwnageTool or sn0wbreeze), your device needs to be in "pwned" DFU mode (you can do this with redsn0w or iReb), you need to manually remove any entries from your hosts file related to gs.apple.com, or something different (you can ask for help; let us know which steps you've tried already).

    Why do i need SHSH's / TinyUmbrella?

    • Apple only allows you to restore to the firmwares they 'sign'. This 'signing' only lasts for a limited time. Once they stop 'signing' the SHSHs for a firmware, there is no way to restore that firmware ever again.
    • you basically need SHSH's to restore to that particular firmware.

    When do I not need SHSH blobs to downgrade my iDevice?

    • You do not need SHSH blobs to downgrade if the device you are downgrading is an original iPhone, an iPhone 3G, an original iPod Touch, or an iPod Touch 2G (MB model only) and is running a pre-iOS 4 firmware.

    I have an iPhone 3G/iPod touch 2nd generation, should I go on iOS 3.1.3 or iOS 4.2.1?

    • User's preference. iOS 3.1.3 runs much more smoothly, but on iOS 4.2.1 you can get native homescreen wallpaper.
