    HELP please

    I am a mac user and hav a jailbroken iphone 4 with ios 4.1. I tried to jailbreak to ios 5.0.1 yesterday using redsnow. After doing that I looked at my iphone and it said ios 4.1 still with cydia in it. Having realised the fact that I forgot to update the ios version through itunes, I tried doing that immediately and but got error 21. I then used redsnow- extras- fix recovery to recover back to ios 4.1 without cydia.

    The morning, I tried updating to ios 5.0.1 via itunes again but error 21 of course then set it into DFU mode and pressed option and used the custom ipw downloaded from the web (iphone 4 ios 5.0.1). After doing that, I got error 1600 now and tried using redsnow to fix recovery again but got error. The screen is now black on my iphone4 and I really dun know wt else to do.

    :(:(:(:(

    You get the 1600 error is your host-files are still pointing to cydia, for 5.01 they need to point to apple again

    Hook-up phone

    Start tiny-umbrella, see if it recognizes your phone, if it does than in the advanced tab uncheck set host to cydia.

    Exit TU

    Download original IPSW from the net, with redsn0w make a custom no BB ipsw,
    with that Alt-restore in itunes.

    btw do you have blobs for 4.1?

    What is the unexpected error in redsn0w?

    The "blobs" are the shsh which you cab save with TU to downgrade to a lower firmware.

    lets start from the beginning:
    - Is your phone locked or unlocked to a carrier? Which firmware/BaseBand is it on now? (TU will tell you)
    - Why do you need a custom firmware?
    - If your phone is unlocked or want to stay with your acrrier anyway just update to the stock ipsw via itunes, for this you need to go into pwned-DFU
    and after that do a normal restore itunes.

    congrats on your jailbreak!

    Some people don't approve of mentioning the above app and repo on this forum.
