    Im just now wanting to do my first JB... I have an iPhone 4 with iOS 5.0.1... and i keep getting an error when i try to JB it... heses what im doing

    run redsn0w 0.9.9b8
    extras > select IPSW
    i click the 5.0 fw file i downloaded
    back out to the first page and hit jailbreak
    with install cydia check, i click next and next again
    followed the directions on how it enter dfu

    it changes to waiting for iphone, then exploiting with limera1n, then finally uploading first stage.... almost as soon as it says that, it will say exploit failed.... am i doing somethign wrong?

    Try on a different computer and see if it successes.
