    Put the phone in DFU mode and restore.

    What version of iOS are you restoring? iOS5 or 4.x? I think Apple has stopped signing 4.3.5

    what does that mean that my "Apple has stopped signing 4.3.5"?? i am using an iphone 4 with 4.3.5 (8L1) and modem firmware 04.10.01. this is so frustrating.

    That means once Apples stops signing 4.3.5, you can restore to that particular firmware (unless you have SHSH blob). Therefore, you can only restore to OS5 at the moment.

    How about trying Ifaith? I heard alot about this but I never try, so I can't give you any instruction or personal experience on it.
