Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.4.1 does not have a jailbreak. You can use Cydia Impactor if you need to un-jailbreak an 8.1-8.4 device without restoring.

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.
