Iphone 3gs Restore Help

Hi i have an iphone 3gs on firmware 4.01.

It is jailbroken through jailbreakme.com which also adds Cydia and i was working great.

I have a problem with cydia not working since i tried in error to add an invalid source.

I want to factory restore through itunes and then jailbreak it again to get cydia reinstalled.

MY QUESTION:

Itunes shows that a newer version of the firmware 4.02 is available, which i obviously dont wont because of jailbreaking and i have not installed.

If i restore my iphone through itunes will it stay at the current firmware i have 4.01?

Many Thanks, im a bit new at the jailbreaking!

Do you have your SHSH saved on Cydia? I'm guessing yes, in which case, just manually download the 4.0.1 firmware, and do a shift-click restore and select the 4.0.1 file that you downloaded. Job done.

I have no idea?

I did the Cydia updates and added Installous etc.

If you open cydia, at the top it should say in green writing "this device has SHSHs on file for......."

Cydia Error Message: Malformed line 3 in source list /etc/apt/sources.listd/cydia.list (dist)

ok, so first you need to get your SHSH saved, follow this link.

Then download 4.0.1 firmware, and do shift-click restore as advised in my other post.

if you can re jailbreak on 4.1 just download the 4.1 ips and use the option to choose your restore ips in itunes

Apple have stopped signing 4.0.1 so that wouldn't work

@alexandercooper: if you know how to SSH into your iPhone or have iFile installed on your phone, you can easily fix this error without rejailbreaking. Google it
