    iPhone 4S on 5.0.1 jail broken. My phone stopped syncing a few day ago, I have tried using 3 other computers and cables/ports and get the same issue. I have other apple products and they all sync without problems on all my pc's. The phone is not recognized by Windows nor iTunes, if I put the phone in DFU mode, iTunes will recognize it and tells me that it needs to be restored. I kick it out of DFU and once again it is not recognized. Restoring to 5.1 is the last option I want to do, but will do that when the new jail break is released, luckily it still charges with the wall charger and still plays audio when connected to my car system with the 30 pin connector. Any ideas guys? Thanks.

    I'm assuming this is an untethered jailbreak.

    Why not try uninstalling a recent Cydia tweak you installed?

    Did you do anything before the issues started?

    If you can't think of anything, I guess the only thing you can do is restore and then rejailbreak. You might want to download the 5.0.1 firmware of felixbruns and then shift-restore off that :/

    Yes, untethered. Deleted almost everything and one by one from Cydia and did not help.
    Don't remember doing anything out of the norm, it had been like 2 weeks since I last synced then one day I wanted to charge my iPhone while using my laptop and that's when I noticed it was not detecting it.
    I don't think it's possible to restore the iPhone 4S to 5.0.1 even with saved blobs, only to the newest firmware. Thanks.
