My mate has accidentaly upgrade to 4.0.2 I was just wondering whether there was a way of jailbreaking without SHSH files.

I had a look on google etc. but it seems to be a bit confusing I was just wondering if someone could clarify.

Thanks

1. Download this - https://www.dropbox.com/s/z1lvtp734bs2eac/iPhone2%2C1_4.0.2_8A400_Restore.ipsw - save it to your desktop (it is the ispw for the downgrade - dont worry it is 4.0.1 but looks like 4.0.2 to fool itunes)

2. Locate "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\" , then locate “hosts” file and Open it in Notepad (for Windows) then add this line at the bottom of the file and save it - 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com

3.Connect your iPhone to your PC and put it into DFU mode


4.in the iphone summary hold 'shift and press restore. You will be promoted by a window to select the firmware you downloaded.

5. That is it - just jailbreak it again for 4.0.1 steps


Hope this helps any problems post here

dcx is correct ! It will not work, ruggerz info is not correct.

The info tells you to change the host file, this sents itunes to Sauriks server to be validated if you have no SHSH saved on Sauriks server it wont get validated. AFAIK your mate is stuck until a new JB is out which wont be for a while i think

how has this happened then? unless the phone second hand and was previously JB.

Many people unknowingly have SHSH files saved on the server just by selecting 'make my life easier' on the cydia homepage.
