    Hi. I have an iPhone 3GS on 5.1.1 with blobs (even though when I query them, a blank tezt file shows up, I was able to stitch and make custom iPSW with it before, and even restore).

    I want to restore to 5.1.1 again, but after a bad jailbrea, and a few "just boot" tries, the phone doesn't respond anymore.


    When I "just boot", sometimes I see a white screen, and others just a blakc one entirely. Even with the black screen, I can get into DFU mode manually to apply the exploit in redsnow, but the screen never flashes or show anything, but it appears to have done it.


    When I try to restore with Redsnow, I always get error saying it can't get into recovery mode, and iTunes throws error with whatever custom and non custom IPSW 5.1.1 I try.


    What worries me the most is that after a few white/grey screen, I don't even see that anymore. Maybe that so called white screen of death?

    Get into DFU mode and restore.

    you need to manually turn off the phone first and then go in to DFU mode.
