    Use redsn0w to get into "pwned dfu" then restore with the custom ipsw through iTunes.

    I'm in the same situation...
    Would you mind be more specific on which custom ipsw? And how do you exactly do it?
    Thank you very much

    Use pwnagetool (Mac) or Sn0wbreeze (Win) to create a custom IPSW that doesn't touch the baseband (this is required for people on 6.15.00 baseband), use one of the two aforementioned programs, or Redsn0w, to put your phone in "pwned" DFU mode, and then click restore while holding the shift key (option on mac) and a window will pop up. Select your custom IPSW that you made and restore to it.
