    restore to 4.1 is your only option unless you saved your SHSH's

    i did everything as in the tutorial , but i am not able to JB it.
    it got stuck on the restore step.
    and it throws an error , 'itunes was unable to restore.error 1604'.

    and the iphone is stuck with that 'connect to itunes logo '

    hold the home button and the power butoon until the phone reboots
    you have to download and use iREB to bypass the errors

    After using iReb attempp to restore from the custom firmware again.
    it will work thiis time

    yeah man ., i found out abt ireb and i finally [LET ME STRESS ON] FINALLY got it JB'd and unlocked with the instructions from the links u sent me.

    i'm normally not this jumpy , but DUDE ! THANKS A LOT :)
    [although it took me one whole day to do this :) ]





    p.s. :- the boot logo is replaced by a snowflake symbol . and it is NOT as classy as the apple logo !

    dude forget that.
    i tred cooking another version of 4.1 with the snowbreeze WITH BATTERY PERCENTAGE ENABLED
    i did exactly the same with iREB n all, but its stuck in BOOT LOGO screen for the past 24 hrs.
    i restored completely in itunes and said 'iphone will reboot shortly in a few seconds "
    but it doesnt go beyond bootlogo screen. the snowflake symbol !



    sorry to be a pain in the ass , but please help me dude :(
