    Default Overriding gs.apple.com? Your updates/restores will fail!

    I just tried to update my iPhone 4's OS. The update failed with error 1004 and left me with the dreaded connect-to-iTunes screen! Saddened, I started a restore and got the same error!

    I was pointing gs.apple.com to Saurik's server in /etc/hosts. After removing it and clearing my directory services cache, restoring worked.

    This threadon the Apple Discussions shows that other people are having the same problem.

    So, something is broken. Either Saurik's activation proxy isn't compatible with the new hardware or OS, or Apple's doing something to muck up the process. The lesson: remove any stray /etc/hosts entries before iPhone 4 updates!
    I'm a lurker, damnit!

    Pretty sure this is a known problem on the iPhone 4 due to the baseband also needs to be signed by Apple during restore.

    You can ignore this error and use TinyUmbrella to kick the iPhone 4 out of restore mode.

    No easy way to set up a similar caching mechanism for this baseband signing during restore as it is seeded with a random number generated by the baseband CPU.
