    i have an untethered JB iphone 4 with ios 5.0.1 with 1.59.00 baseband..
    earlier today it was all working fine, but as i started cydia to add a new source, it suddenly crashed. my phone stopped responding, so i tried a hard reset and from then it is stuck on apple logo with a progress bar showing no activity...

    as a solution i tried " Red snow - Just boot " method
    (with out adding a custom ipsw file )
    but nothing happened yet.

    please help me...

    Do you have shsh blobs saved? And if yes for what firmware?

    nops i haven't Because i just bought it from local market....

    well I'm thinking of

    what if my phone is tethered jailbreak ? c'z in that case my phone should must be stuck on same screen... ( Apple logo with a progress bar )
    so for that i should use ios 5.0 ipsw file in order to apply " Just boot " method in order to get back on my desktop.
    and once I'm on desktop. i should go to cydia and install " Corona untethered jailbreak "

    am i right ?????

    Nope, not even close to right.
    Without shsh blobs you cannot restore it to anything but the latest firmware out.
    If its on tethered boot you can try booting tethered but I doubt that's the only prob.
    But before you do that you might be able to pull your current shsh blobs that's on it now that's on "messed up" 5.0.1 and submit them to cydias server using redsnow.
    Redsnow/extras/Shsh blobs/fetch

    it means i should pull my current SHSH blobs first in order to restore 5.0.1 firmware....

    well i tried " Redsnow/extras/Shsh blobs/fetch " but the process stuck on " uploading first stage " ...... should i select ios 5.0 firmware first before pulling SHSH blobs ?

    ----------

    as an addition... before this apple logo stuck.. i have installed many tweaks from cydia and reboot my phone plenty of times, it never stuck in startup.

    does it mean my phone is untethered ?

    Yes, it's untethered then.
    Select the 5.0.1 ipsw with redsnow and then try the shsh fetch again.
