Deactivate "set servers to cydia" tick box on tiny umbrella and try again. Cydia might not have your 4.3.1 or 4.3.2 blobs. So itunes is not working. Doing a fresh restore it will bring you the 4.3.2

should i run redsn0w over it? could that help or make it worse?

(16 Apr '11, 23:32) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

Do you have the blobs for 4.3.1?

(16 Apr '11, 23:35) facsi facsi's gravatar image

(16 Apr '11, 23:37) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

Download tinyumbrella and save the 4.3.1 blobs

(16 Apr '11, 23:38) facsi facsi's gravatar image

(16 Apr '11, 23:38) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

i have shsh's for my iphone. not hers

Does this iphone 4 relies on unlock?

(16 Apr '11, 23:39) facsi facsi's gravatar image

TU doesnt even register the iphone currently

(16 Apr '11, 23:40) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

no. no unlock

(16 Apr '11, 23:41) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

I would download 4.3.1 firwmare and try to update it with itunes + Shift restore. 4.3.1 blobs are still on i think

(16 Apr '11, 23:42) facsi facsi's gravatar image

i did that originally, i got the error message "the iphone 'iphone' could not be restored this device isnt eligible for the requested build"

(16 Apr '11, 23:46) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

then blobs for 4.3.1 arent up anymore. You could try update to 4.3.2 and boot tethered. Or wait for expert advise.

(16 Apr '11, 23:49) facsi facsi's gravatar image

i tried to update to 4.3.2 i got the exact same message

(16 Apr '11, 23:51) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

If you have TU on your computer, open it and uncheck the tickbox "set servers to cydia". click APPLY and then close TU and try to restore to 4.3.1

(16 Apr '11, 23:52) facsi facsi's gravatar image
