    Sounds like you tried a downgrade from iOS6 back to iOS5
    That is a common issue and getting a 4S out of recovery after trying that is tough.

    Aih.. Tough but nog undoable? :D

    My thoughts are creating a custom ispw and put in op the iphone.

    But when i open a downloaded ispw for 4s in redsnow it says thats a wrong ipsw.

    Is there an option to get a signed ipsw and restore it on the phone?

    Or a ipsw without bb check/update?

    You cannot apply a custom IPSW's for a 4S since there is no boot level exploit for that device (can't go into pwned DFU which is required for custom IPSW)

    The only chance to get the phone working again is to keep working to get it on 6.1.2 firmware by using iTunes.
    You can plug it into iTunes and reboot it to see if iTunes will "see" the phone in recovery.

    Oke, thnx :(

    Think it will be available in the near future?

    Well everything goes well in itunes but gives an error at i guess 90%?
    the iphone just reboots and itunes error -1 thats it.

    Tryed it 50 times already..In Recovery mode and in DFU mode.

    Very, very doubtful.
    The 4S has been out a long time and no boot level exploit similiar to Limera1n has been discovered.

    The point where it fails is the baseband portion of the restore.
    Whatever you first tried to do is what has corrupted the baseband causing the -1 error (that's what this error =)

    You are running iTunes with everything else closed (no TU, no Redsn0w) ?

    Yes tried (almost) everything.

    Itunes open and redsnow open together.. and closed.
    Installed itunes on a fresh windows version
    Removed itunes and installed almost every version.
    Tryed every version of redsn0w

    Changend the HOSTS entries and almost every combination.

    Messing with Redsn0w is wasted time.
    The only fix is getting iTunes to see the phone in recovery mode and then restore to stock 6.1.2

    Oke, thnx i thought maybe redsn0w would overrule or could push the firmware. :D and did a beter job then itunes.

    Is there nog option that i first can kick it out of recovery mode? Or is the firmware just messed up and would not even start?

    It is stuck in recovery mode because whatever you tried to do caused this when it did not complete.
    As I said, your only chance is to reboot computer, open only iTunes and keep connecting phone to iTunes and reboot it and hope iTunes eventually sees the phone in recovery mode.

    I suspect you do not really take time to read responses based on subsequent replies.
    Good luck.

    You folks probably know a lot more about this than I do, but I'll offer my one experience: when I had the same problem as the OP, I connected the latest version of TinyUmbrella (tinyumbrella-6.10.03a) to my phone and then hit the Exit Recovery button in TinyUmbrella. Phone rebooted normally after I disconnected it.
