if you are using tinyumbrella make sure in the advance tab the "requist shsh from cydia" is not marked it its do unmarke it and restart your computer. if this is not the case thanjust try rebooting your computer it this is not working try a diffrent USB port

have you ever used that specific computer for restoring idivice

try a diffrent computer if you have and make sure you are with the latest itune
