    My friend messed up her jailbroken phone, so now we're trying to get it on 5.1.1 to restore, since its stuck at the Apple logo and wont boot past it. It doesn't show up in iTunes or TinyUmbrella.

    She doesn't have internet since she used it to tether with her MacBook, but now that it wont start she doesn't have internet. We managed to get her somewhere with Wifi (she disabled) and got 5.1.1 (9B208) & Absinthe 2.0.4 downloaded, and we had gotten it into DFU but she had to go home.

    So today we tried it, and a few times she said iTunes kept saying "The iphone software update server could not be contacted," and the iPhone wouldn't go into DFU. She stated the Apple logo would appear, disappear, reappear, and then the USB-to-iTunes logo would show, but iTunes nor TinyUmbrella would recognize it.

    Is there anything wrong? If I could control her Mac remotely this would be easier but I couldn't find a seamless way of doing so.

    She needs to find a computer with iTunes and internet access.

    She has her Mac, just no internet, so I guess thats why we had gotten it to work yesterday, then? (since she was on wifi)
