    hello,

    I have an iphone 4 running ios 5, i was jailbreaking it and something went wrong, my device got bricked, the i got it to go on the "connect to itunes" logo. when i press restore on itunes, it automaticly asks me to restore and update to ios 5.0.1. but i dont want that, i want to stay on 5.0 I do not have shsh blobs saved. I already tried doing shift restore but then i get error 3914.
    I have windows

    tnx yosin12

    Your phone is NOT bricked...bad title choice.

    You have no choice but to restore to 5.0.1
    You cannot go to 5.0 since Apple stopped signing those blobs.

    iFaith was a life saver for my iPhone 4 running 4.3.3 I did a iFaith signed ipsw so I could downgrade back to that firmware whenever I wanted since when I got it 4.3.5 was already out for a month.

    maybe its smart to make an iFaith backup of your current firmware before doing anything that may lead to not being able to restore to the unsigned firmware

    Bricked's definition has been generally accepted to be expanded and no long only applies when the magic smoke has been released. And this is off topic.
