Hello, please can I ask for help getting from 5.0.1. back to 4.3.3. jailbroken (ipod touch 4g) ... desperate, tried google/everything for ages ... iOS 5.0.1. won't run some apps that I love, don't have wifi anyway, and totally regret trying it ... umpteen times tried shift-restore, editing hosts file, tiny umbrella, everything ... totally confused and upset. Redsnow has the 4.3.3. blobs available online, but I can't work out how to bypass itunes, get back to jb 4.3.3. Would appreciate help completely. Thanks, Cat

a post somewhere on this site where guy had put redsnow and 4.3.3 ipsw into c:root folder called rainsnow [then I added in old blobs found had from end of last year, saved on external] ... he said to right click and run redsnow in vista sp1 compatability and disable visual themes and then run redsnow as administrator ... did that and stitched 4.3.3 ipsw and old blobs ... itunes put ipod to 4.3.3 and then did normal jb using 4.3.3 original ipsw!
