So I accidentally upgraded to 5.1 and today I tried to downgrade back to what I had previously which would be 4.2.8. I attempted to do so with iTunes as some video said it would work but I simply got an error so I decided to use iFaith and create a custom IPSW with my saved SHSH blobs for 4.2.8. After it finished doing everything the iphone booted but it was stuck on the "connect to iTunes" screen as if I was to activate my iphone? Then it comes up with a screen on the computer that says itunes cannot activate my phone and to try again later.. I keep trying to restore by going into DFU and even restoring back to the newest firmware but it keeps coming back to the same thing.. I have the iPhone 4 CDMA version so I'm not sure why its asking to activate like this...even when I press the little "i" button on the activation menu the MEID number comes up as unknown so I dont know whats going on. I've tried numerous methods to fix the "itunes recovery loop" but nothing works. When I try to restore I get either the "3194" or occasionally "2005" or "1" anybody have any advise?? I made an appointment to go to the genius bar tomorrow after work cause I cant have my phone unusable for too long. Thanks in advanced for any help!!
