    Hi everyone.

    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4S but I want to restore it from the start and completely erase everything. I have followed instructions from this site : http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1275 . Further more, I have already tried restoring under DFU mode. But this is always the result.


    Anyone who could help me out? Thanks a bunch!

    I assume you are trying to restore to something other than iOS6 (you are trying to keep 5.1.1 or something?). At this point, you can't. Apple stopped signing iOS 5.1.1 and lower, as they want to force you to upgrade to iO6. I was asking a similar question yesterday, as I have a 4S with 5.1.1 JB, and I wanted to wipe it and reload 5.1.1 JB brand new, but can't at this time. Redsnow is going to be releasing a new version very soon, which will allow a 5.1.1 restore. But the caveat is that you had to have saved off your SHSH blob in either Cydia or Tiny Umbrella before this point, otherwise, you might be out of luck.

    Hope this helps.

    It's the same question, it cannot be done without saved hash file.
