    Default NEED SERIOUS HELP!!! iPhone 4s 5.1.1 JB, stuck in boot loop and springboard loop!!!!
    Ok here is what happened and as much detail as i know:
    I have an iPhone 4S with 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak by absinthe
    Im using a Windows 7 computer 64 bit, and i have a windows 7 32bit desktop
    I DO NOT HAVE ANY SSH blobs

    Here is what happened
    This morning I was trying to install PDANet from Cydia, it was having issues installing because I had my Wifi on and for some reason my installs work much better when Im on 3G, well it got errors or whatever and didnt install right and it told me to restart the springboard. So i clicked to restart the springboard and while it had the little white loading circle in the middle, it seemed to have froze or be taking to long. So I decided to just do a hard reset on it. (Sleep/Wake button + Home button for 10 sec). After that when it booted up I got the usual Apple logo, but it seemed to stay on there for a while, then the little white loading circle that I usually only see when I restart the springboard appeared and then just like that it rebooted and went the same process. It has been doing the same thing all day. I cant get to my homescreen at all. I can put it in DFU mode and in Recovery mode
    Here is everything I have tried so far:
    Hard Reset (Sleep/Wake button + Home button for 10 sec) multiple times
    Booting it while holding the Volume Up button down
    I have tried restoring on two different computers using the 5.1.1 ISPW, I updated both computers, I updated both antivirus programs on computers, disabled antivirus, updated itunes, uninstalled itunes and mobile device support, reinstalled itunes and mobile device support.
    When I try restoring in DFU mode I get errors like iTunes error 16xx (usually 1600, 1601, 1602)
    I have tried multiple USB ports and know that my USB cable works perfect
    When I try to restore in recovery mode I always get error 21. And I believe I get error 21 because it is suppose to be in DFU mode when I restore, and the reason I keep getting error 16xx while in DFU mode is because it thinks I am trying to install a custom ISPW.
    I have tried to put it in pwned DFU mode but I do not believe it is support. I have tried accessing the file system and am unable

    Here are all the programs I have tried and failed with:
    Redsnow (multiple versions including the very latest)
    Tiny Umbrella
    Disk Aid
    iExplorer
    iREB

    Nothing I have found is able to access the file system while it is in boot loop, DFU mode, or Recovery mode, and nothing I have found supports the iPhone 4S on 5.1.1
    Please, anybody, help me???

    why are you trying to restore to a custom firmware?

    Baseband preservation is not yet supported for 4s devices yet.

    make sure to check your HOSTS file and ensure that the host entry "gs.apple.com" is either commented out with a # in front or deleted. Then save it!

    Then restore to a STOCK ISPW

    no problem,

    I am glad someone was articulate in describing their issues. A lot of people vaguely describes their issues and what they have tried, and it is difficult for us to help them as we dont know what they did.

    Any time you need assistance again, describe the issues as detailed as you did here, and we will most likely help you resolve the issue faster

    Have fun!

    download the 5.1.1 firmware from iclarified

    put the phone in DFU mode by holding the POWER BUTTON + HOME BUTTON for 8 seconds, let go of the POWER BUTTON but keep holding the HOME BUTTON for about 10 seconds

    open itunes and it should say your phone is in recovery mode, then hold the SHIFT key + click RESTORE and point it to the firmware you downloaded

    Hold power and home button down together and force a hard reboot.

    Just one of many reasons not to pirate apps.

    I have the same problem as this chap. I search my HOSTS file and gs.apple.com is no where to be found.
    First I got the error code 3194. So I used TinyUmbrella and now I get error code 11. Which told me to make sure and delete gs.apple.com, but I can't find that entry.
