    Hi, well, this morning, I woke up and my iPod Touch 2nd Gen on 4.0 was stuck at the apple logo. Usually what I do then, is let the battery run dry, then the iPod would boot up when you start charging it again and turn it on, but this time, it wouldn't work. So I put my iPod Touch into DFU, and restored it, only once I did, it put me on 4.1, so I now can't jailbreak and use the multitasking option. That wouldn't be a problem for me if Apple had just included the rotation lock in regular 4.1 firmware along with the cool pop up bar at the bottom, just no multitasking like I thought it would, but I realized that I didn't even have that, and having no rotation lock is such a big deal when I'm checking facebook before bed

    Now, my SHSH blobs have been saved onto Sauriks server, but I don't know how to access them at all to downgrade to 4.0, if that's even what I need to do.
    Can anybody offer any advice or help on how I should go about downgrading?
    Thanks

    Open the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add this line to the bottom.
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    Then shift+click restore. Then use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode.

    Use notepad to edit the hosts file.

    Then I just downloaded Tiny Umbrella, open it first then you have to close itunes then hit "start tss server", then open itunes up back again, and you can now restore to the firmware that you have blobs saved...

    Yeah, applehacker, I already did that, and the line I was meant to add in was already there, so I've just started up TInyUmbrella and now iTunes, and I'm gonna shift click restore it, is there anything I've missed?
