What error number did you get when you tried to restore?

try disabling your antivirus and remove the last 2 lines from your hosts file. For Windows, navigate to C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/ and find the file that’s named “hosts”. open it with note pad and delete the last 2 lines and try to restore and restart the jailbreaking process if you please.
