    Hello. I am trying to jailbreak my brothers Verizon iPhone 4 that is running iOS 5.1. I have tried using redsn0w on Windows and OSX but the same problem occurs. I get all the way to the point where redsn0w says "Waiting on device to reboot" and it just sits there. The iPhone reboots but redsn0w never does anything. I have jailbroken my AT&T iPhone 4 numerous times and even have it jailbroken on 5.1 but I cannot figure out what is wrong with my brothers. Is there a different method to jailbreaking the Verizon iPhones?

    Yes, I am well aware.

    Has anyone seen this happen before? It looks like it successfully runs the limara1n exploit, but never installs cydia.

    Use redsn0w for 5.1 tethered jailbreak on iPhone 4.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Try it on another computer.
    Make sure you have the latest itunes and latest redsnow version.

    I think you should think twice before theter-jailbreaking something as important as a phone
