    so i did a clean restore since my iphone was a brick and wasnt taking the 4.2.10 install (even though i had my shsh blobs saved -__-, btw if anyone wants to help me out on that then by all means go for it), and after i jailbroke 5.0.1, and booted tethered, nothing works. my email closes out after a bit, so does safari, its like a semitether boot, but it works for a little longer then closes. i tried respringing, booting tethered, and neither fixed the problem. any help? btw i used redsn0w 0.9.9b8 on a mac

    EDIT: cydia works fine

    When you were trying to restore to 4.2.1, did you have your hosts files pointing to cydia or apple?

    Was 4.2 ever actually installed on the phone, or did you just save the blobs?

    they were pointing towards cydia, and no i went from 4.2.8 (forgot to save shsh), to 5.0 (big mistake), to 5.0.1 (bigger mistake)
