    I have my iPhone 4 jailbroken and unlocked on 4.01 and something went wrong cause the phone shut off and wont turn on. It just goes to the apple screen then sits there for a few seconds and shuts off. I want to retore it but i cant cause itunes says the 4.01 custom firmware isnt compatable. How do i get around this? Or is there any other way to update it but keep it unlocked and jailbroken?

    Well that would help if tiny umbrella would recognize my phone. My phone wont do anything beside stay on the apple screen for a second. And only itunes will recognize it in recovery mode.

    I've heard that a program called Recboot can kick iPhones out of recovery mode.

    Well itunes isn't the only thing that will recognizes it, it might be the only thing you have download that will recognize it. For future reference thread title with "HELP ASAP" generally don't get met with a great response.

    Jailbreaking isn't fool proof and it requires a certain amount of knowledge. You can begin by educating yourself here. You need to provide a little more information like if you have your SHSH blobs saved.

    what i dont get is the phone was working fine for months and all of a sudden yesterday i was making a phone call and it shut off. The phone wont do anything until you plug it in to a power source then it goes to the apple screen stays there for a second then shuts of and keeps repeating the process.

    In my experience, when iDevices do break down, it tends to be sudden. It's not like a computer that chugs along choking on a faulty hard drive or failing system components. It tends to either work smoothly, or not at all.

    And that will be why you aren't able to restore to any OS other than 4.1. Not sure how you missed that if you've been jailbreaking for a while. I believe tinyumbrella should let you update while preserving your baseband.

    So your an experienced jailbreaker and didn't know to click the "make my life easier" button in cydia? You can restore to 4.1 and use TU to keep you BB.

    I can only get it to show up on itunes when i hold the slep and home for 10seconds then hold home for 5 seconds. It shows up in itunes as in recovery mode I cant get the phone to do anything unless its plugged in.

    If it's showing up in iTunes, I don't know why Tinyumbrella doesn't detect it.

    Are you in recovery or DFU? Is there a picture of the cable and itunes on the screen of the phone?

    I'm not even sure TU needs to be able to detect your device to prevent the BB update but you can go ahead and get your 4.1 blobs saved by using THIS and copy your ECID into TU.
