So after a lot of work, I put together a custom IPSW, put by 4th Gen iPod Touch into Pwned DFU Mode, and tried to restore by using Redsnow 0.9.15b3 and going to Extras -> Even More -> Restore. I immediately get a response every time tell me Unable to Contact TSS Server and then it backs out. PLEASE HELP.

P.S. I am currently running iOS 6.1.3 and am trying to downgrade to 6.1.2

I even tried creating a new IPSW using sn0wbreeze, but to no avail. Anyone have an idea?

oh, it's you again. Check your hosts file. If it has references to, delete that line. Try opening Command prompt and type "ping" in there, see if you're getting a response or a timeout error.

and, after all, you should be using iTunes to restore a custom ipsw. redsn0w will only accept clean files.
