    Same as last time, Error 29, I replaced the battery myself after the poor job the company did, and I triple checked the ribbons and battery was in correctly, which they were. But the company did forget to put one screw back in and that was the screw holding the camera in, but I thought that wouldn't do anything as the worst case would be I without a camera which I can live with. But the company did somehow get the phone working again for about an hour before it got stuck in recovery... how?

    Yep, it works for about 10 seconds then goes back to recovery... Does it matter what version my iPhone is to what version my Tinyumbrella is? I'm not sure what what iPhone version is ATM and my Tinyumbrella is 5.11.01

    5.11.01 is the very latest version, so you should be fine.

    Give Redsn0w a shot and see what happens. It's weird that it comes in and out like that...

    Redsn0w 0.9.14b2 is the latest version.

    Go to extras > Recovery fix and try it.
