    I had originally saved my SHSH blobs to cydia using redsnow 0.9.9b1 and verified them then i formatted my laptop and installed Mac OSX lion before i upgraded my iOS to 5.0. I have not enjoyed so far so today i want to downgrade to iOS 4.3.3, i got redsnow 0.9.9b1 and i queried the blobs, it shows that they are all there. then i downloaded tinyumbrella and used it to change my host to cydia and then tried to restore. somewhere towards the end of the restore i get and an Error (1) and a failure to restore and my phone is stuck in recovery mode. i read that i am supposed to expect an error and I am to use Recovery fix. i tried recovery fix with redsnow but it seems stuck "fetching required files" as shown in the attached pic. i have also tried using tiny umbrella to fix the problem but to no avail. so what do i do?

    Had this happened to me before. What I did was I went ahead and jailbroke with redsn0w even with the phone in recovery loop, then use tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery mode after jailbreak.

    Hope that helps.

    If you have your saved blobs its quite simple with Ifaith
