i really can't think of anything i downloaded from cydia that might have caused this but it is worth mentioning that i recently purchased Tetherme and have been playing around with that as of late.
Once in a while i will reboot my phone through the power settings in sbsettings. Today, without thinking really, my iphone 5 was plugged into a wall charger and i hit reboot. When i came back to check it, i had the connect to itunes screen. I have tirelessly searched the web for ways to bypass this screen to no avail (maybe i'm not describing my problem well enough). My last backup was almost 3 weeks ago and i would really like it if i could somehow preserve my info, jailbreak, etc. Please help,
unlocked iphone 5 on t-mobile running ios 6.1.2

Clicked reboot? Not sure if we have enough info to try to help.
What is the phone doing/not doing.

Perhaps try using tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery mode.

Ok, i will try that right now. I will update you asap
Quick question, in tinyumbrella, do i want to Enter, exit, or fix recovery?

Try exit, if that doesn't work try fix.

This is the action tinyumbrella performs before failing each time and retuning me to the connect to itunes screen.

i also have the option to save SHSH, if that is any help

You can also try resn0w, in extras, recovery fix.

trying that now
no luck their either. Is there any other means where i can preserve my jailbreak or stay on my current firmware 6.1.2?
i am getting more and more tempted to hit restore in itunes =/ it seems like both tinyumbrella and redsn0w cant get it out of the connect to itunes screen.
i was able to get my device into dfu mode and select the 'fix recovery' option in tiny umbrella. I am now awaiting the results...

Did you try to restart the phone by holding the home button together with the power button for 15 seconds?
05-23-2013, 02:23 PM #13
I have already tried that. Unfortunately, i couldn't find any additional methods that might help so i just restored. I'm just going to have to appreciate my jailbroken ipad 2 that much more lol; and avoid coming to modmyi and seeing tempting tweaks for the iphone till the next untethered jailbreak comes out. haha
