My hosts file says 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com When I enter gs.apple.com into my browser it takes me to cydia welcome page. Shouldn´t it take me to an apple page Why does this happen?

We need more details. What device, what is the current firmware, what firmware are you restoring to, what is the modem firmware, how are you doing the restore.

Possible 6.15 modem firmware. Try redsn0w/extras/fix recovery. If same, redo restore with computer antivirus disabled or uninstalled.

Because you have gs.apple.com in the hosts file. Add a # on every line that has gs.apple.com in it.
