There is something wrong with my iphone 4s running ios 5.0.1 (jailbroken).
Whenever I plug my iphone into any usb (tried different ports and cables) on my friends laptop/desktop (Mac desktop/ Windows laptop) nothing happens at all. But when I plug my phone into the wall-charger it charges with no problem on more then one cable (all apple cables). I know it cant be itunes (10.6.1), software, etc... because when I connect my friends iphone to the desktop/laptop right after my failed attempt, his works no problem.
Another thing I did was I downloaded music from my friends mac desktop, another itunes, (not the computer my phone is synced with) and I used this playlist/autofill method from youtube (it worked) to be able to transfer some songs from his computer to my phone. Maybe that's the culprit?
So I dont know what to do to fix this. Short of restoring, I've tried starting it in safe mode to see if it will then connect/sync but nothing happened, deleted Fusion, I don;t want to put it into DFU mode because i'm afraid I wont be able to get it out unless i restore.

If you want to restore, you can only restore to 5.1.

well I dont want to but i guess i will if that is my only option. But can't i restore using a previous firmware if i have/choose to.

No since Apple is no longer signing 5.0.1, you'd have to save your SHSH blobs and use them to make a signed firmware for 5.0.1I will no longer be very active here anymore due to a variety of reasons.

i think i did save them after i jailbroke using tiny umbrella. If i did I just hold a button when i hit restore in itunes right? but how can i restore if my computer will not see my phone?

Don't you remember posting this? It was only yesterday. And you clearly state you installed and I quote "fusion (cracked)" the thread was then closed by one of the mods as MMI does not condone piracy or help pirates
