    I have done a reinstall of 5.0.1 on my iPhone 4S recently but wanted to do the same thing on my wife's 4. I have her SHSH saved to Cydia but Redsn0w keeps failing on restoring 5.0.1. Anyone know if this works? The iClarified tutorial only mentions this working on A5+ devices.

    Yes, with the 5.x.x hashes it will work. Have done 5.1.1 restores to my iPhone 4 several times.

    Hmm...I keep getting exploit failed. Using latest redsn0w build B3 and when I go the tutorial on iclarified after specifying the 5.0.1 ipsw file it wants me to put phone into DFU mode (didn't have to do that on my 4s) then it does some "stuff" and reboots the phone and then rs reports exploit failed. Do I need to do anything with my hosts file as far as pointing gs.apple.com to cydia/localhost? My blobs are on the cydia server currently.

    EDIT: Nevermind, issue with my Windows 8 machine, working fine on a Win 7 box. Thanks for the help!
