    Alright here's what I am using:

    Sprint iPhone 4 5.1
    redsn0w 9.10b8b
    Updated iTunes
    Windows 7

    What I have tried:
    Running everything normal
    Running just in admin
    Running Admin + XP Service Pack 2 Compatibility
    Running normal + XP Service Pack 2 Compatibility

    No dice.

    I get stuck at the same part.

    It goes from "exploiting with limera1n" to "uploading first stage" to "uploading second stage" then to "waiting for reboot." My phone reboots up to normal, no cydia, nothing and redsn0w just keeps saying "Waiting for Reboot."

    Any suggestions?

    I have even tried to restore the phone to 5.1 with the .ispw on iClarified and it still does the same thing.

    I give up..

    use Greenpois0n.com Absinthe

    If you can restore your phone update it to 5.1.1 Then use Green Pois0n Absinthe. I used it and it was so easy and I've done it a couple of times. Just make sure you back up your device, just in case.

    Absinthe/redsn0w doesn't jailbreak 5.1, only 5.1.1.

    ----------

    But if you do mean 5.1.1, make sure your USB cable is working properly. I had the exact same problem on my iPad, even though the USB cable worked fine for syncing to iTunes, when I tried to use it to jailbreak it always failed. And it freaked me out too, cause absinthe would crash in the middle of the jailbreak, I think I ended up restoring 4 times before I tried a different cable which worked without flaw.

    Oh and you say you use redsn0w, why not give absinthe a try.
