    Hey all,

    My 4S is jailbroken with Absinthe on 5.1.1 and I was going to update to 6.1 to prepare for the new jailbreak and I accidentally 'Restore & Update' in iTunes, now I am stuck in recovery mode. Redsnow and TinyUmbrella both can't kick it out, I can get into DFU mode but iTunes gives error 21 when trying to option restore.

    How can I get back to 5.1.1 or properly update to 6.1?

    Thanks!

    Put it in dfu mode and restore.
    You cant update a JB device with restore and update. That's why its stuck.
    You have to do a full restore.
