I have a slight problem with my iPhone 4, It's jailbroken and doesn't boot anymore.
To make things worse the only sign of life it gives me is that it gets recognized by iTunes and tinyumbrella as in DFU mode.
Recovering gives me "an unkown error" with code "4005", Googled the absolute hell out of it but i can't find any problem solvers.
I think the latest version that was on the phone was iOS 6.2.1. Also i did not save blobs. (I know im a genius)
Things i've tried:
Recover with Itunes
Recover with tinyumbrella
All the home+sleep combinations
Try to load older ISPWs
Tried other cables/pc's
Nothing so far is working.
As i've said the only slight sign of life is that my Mac recognizes the phone when its in dfu mode, when i restore though it leaves dfu mode and then connection between the phone and the pc is clearly lost.
Hope you guys can help me out!

Since you didn't save any blobs, you may have to restore with the latest firmware. Hopefully the following steps will help:
1. Download and install the latest iTunes
2. Put iPhone in pwned DFU mode (not just DFU mode). You can download iREB from iH8Sn0w website (iH8sn0w.com) run it and follow instructions.
3. Exit iREB then run iTunes. It should recognize the iphone is in recovery mode. Follow iTunes' instructions to restore.

Hey there, i've tried that before but it didn't work. pwned dfu makes no difference for me.

Did you ever fix it? Many times it just takes patience. Does dumping your shsh blobs via ifaith still work? I haven't done it since the 5.x days but it worked back then with phones in dfu mode
