If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

in my hosts file do i need to have an ip address infront of gs.apple.com for an update to work? or does it work with gs.apple.com?

The IP adress together with gs.apple.com protects iPhone 4 users from updating their baseband when installing firmware. It is not related to greenpois0n. To get the entry correct, remove it and then run and quit TinyUmbrella.

You need the ip address of saurik's server (Cydia server) in order to set up the redirect. The IP address is 74.208.105.171 and place the address in front of gs.apple.com

TinyUmbrella can also modify your host file for you (along with caching your SHSH blobs!)

Edit: gs.apple.com works fine for restoring to current FW if you don't need unlock. I still would recommend backing up SHSH with TinyUmbrella.
