Hi. i jailbroke my iphone 4 verizon about 5 months ago with redsn0w. i used redsn0w 0.9.8b4 (im not sure im guessing) and downloaded the ipsw for my phone (ios 5.1 iphone 4 verizon cdma). i was fine, when my phone would turn off i would just hook it up and boot until the ipsw and redsn0w got deleted somehow (IDK How). i downloaded redsn0w 0.9.10b6 and the ipsw for my phone and tried to boot tethered. i did the whole process with the power button and homebutton thing and it started to work (it recognized my phone) but then after 2 seconds it said INTERNAL ERROR. i treid it several times and dont know what to do. please help!!!!!

Try booting to DFU and restoring.

i would rather not having to do that because i have quite a few jailbreak apps and would not like to have to go through downloading them again. is there another way?

----------

How come you didn't just download Rocky Racoon to untether?

Rocky Racoon only works on 5.1.1 not on 5.1



well…hardly, and besides that not very helpful.

@OP
Use redsn0w 9.10b8 from the dev-team blog itself, if Just Boot doesn't work you'll probably need to restore.

Don't need to download the current firmware to work with redsn0w, hit Just Boot.

I think you might have to do a restore.. Internal error does not point to a easy fix in fact it sounds almost like a hardware issue. if you have shsh blobs then you can try to restore 5.0.1 other wise you have to upgrade to 5.1

I tried resetting to factory settings but it was on the wheel for like 45 minutes and I don't know how to restore it and need to back up my contacts but don't know how since it's not connecting to a computer

I don't think your going to be able to backup. I backup at ;east every couple days for this very reason. I'm pretty sure DFU more is your only option at this point. http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1034
