Stitching IPSW and restoring is not working for me. iPhone 4 on 5.0.1
I used tinyumbrella to pull my SHSH 5.0.1 from Cydia. I used redsnow to create a custom IPSW and then stitch it. Put phone in DFU mode and tried to restore to that stitched IPSW.
I did everything right correct? If so why is this not working? I get a 1600 error in iTunes during the restore. I'm using a MacBook.

You should move up to 5.1.1
Custom firmware can't be restored on a device with DFU Mode. The software of the device isn't patched. Using a jailbreak tool, enter a pwned DFU Mode. During that process the software gets patched and the custom firmware should run without any problems.
APTicket problems if you try to restore to iOS 5.x in the DFU Mode.
If trully stuck (even with an regular iTunes Restore), edit the hosts file and comment out the "guzzoni.apple.com" line

ok so I need to download 5.1.1 and then stitch that and try to restore/upgrade to 5.1.1? Is 5.1.1 a untethered jailbreakable firmware? Sorry I'm not aware as I didn't stay in the loop after 5.0.1.

Yes redsn0w and it is untethered. Download the 5.1.1 .ipsw, open redsn0w, choose extras, then stitch your blobs. This thread should help on stitching. [How To] Stitch Your SHSH Blobs to a Firmware File

as Chad711, I used tinyumbrella to pull my SHSH 5.1.1 from Cydia. I used redsnow to create a custom IPSW and then stitch it. Put phone in DFU mode and tried to restore to that stitched IPSW.
I get a 1600 error in iTunes during the restore.
I'm using the Gevey Ultra, does this change the process?
Can I leave it in during the process of restore, or not?
