    I was attempting to update from 4.1 firmware to 4.3.3 firmware this evening. I started TU, and went through the process with the TSS server running. I got an error, and the phone stayed in DFU mode.

    I've tried going back to 4.1 without success (SHSH's were saved). I tried updating to 4.3.5 or whatever the latest one is with no TU, etc. Just a straight update through iTunes. Still get an error & back to recover mode...

    I've tried to do the recovery fix - it seems to work. My iPhone get's that wall o' text on boot up, but it just stays that way. Do I need to wait more than 5-10 mins on this screen?

    I'm really stuck, and would appreciate any help you can give as I am currently without a phone now!

    Thank you in advance!!

    Got it to work. Used the two recovery fix tools & got it back to stock 4.1 w/out JB. Still have 1.59 BB, though.

    My attempts to install 4.3.3 didn't work, but maybe it would have if I'd kept trying to install that FW?

    I'm left confused, a bit frustrated, but mostly glad I have a functional phone again... I'd really like to go back & JB, though... Anyone have any clue where I went wrong this go-round? Thanks again!!
