    I'm on a 3GS jailbroken with blackra1n on 3.1.2 and my warrantee is up in a few days. I need to update to ios 4.0.1 so I can get rid of the jailbreak and warrantee exchange my phone before it is up because the vibrate button does not work. I've tried shift clicking restore and update and downloading the GM firmware and all that but NOTHING works. keep getting the error: "iPhone software update servers cannot be contacted" every damn time PLEASE HELP SOOON!!!

    Update to the latest version of iTunes, and just click restore since it doesn't matter about your jailbreak.
    And have you tried a firmware other than the 4.0 GM firmware? Since it is an iPhone, you need to update it to 4.0.1. They don't sign 4.0 for iPhone's!
