iPhone 4 tried updating to 4.3.5 using tinyumbrella CANNOT RESTORE Recovery mode
So here's the thing, I was out of the iphone unlock scene for a while and after my phone started crashing I decided to update to 4.3.5 instead of restoring my 4.1 ispw which is unlocked on 1.59.00. I didn't realize the jailbreak out is tethered, and that the last untethered jailbreak is for 4.3.3. So after using tinyumbrella to update by restoring on itunes to 4.3.5 I am stuck in recovery mode and I've tried EVERYTHING and nothing is working. How can I get down to 4.3.3?
Fixed: First I remembered the hosts file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc needs to have sauriks server. So I went on to delete everything at the bottom until it looked like this:
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
Saved it, opened itunes with tinyumbrella open and went on to restore to 4.3.3.
Got 10xx error afterwards, click exit recovery on tinyumbrella but apple logo kept flashing and cycle booting.
Went ahead and used fixrecovery421.exe and then fixrecovery43.exe. Voila! I got to the start screen.
Went ahead and used redsn0w redsn0w_win_0.9.8b5 to jailbreak and still on 01.59.00.
Good to know I've still got the touch

thanked for this post.
This was a stupid thing to do (sorry I just had to say it)
