10-31-2012, 03:32 PM #1Problem with re-restoring 4S to 5.1.1 with redsn0w
Having an issue with trying to re-restore my iPhone 4S.
1) I have all my shsh files locally and on cydia (5,501,511)
2) I am using the correct ipsw files (same ones used when I restored normally on itunes - 5,501,511)
3) I followed all instructions on iClarified (iClarified - iPhone - How to Re-Restore Your iPhone From iOS 5.x to iOS 5.x (Windows))
The whole process on redsn0w follows through without a problem (for the most part) until the very end and then it shows an error message stating that re-restore failed. it either stays on the itunes recovery screen on my iphone or it goes into an endless loop where the phone shows the loading bar for restoring, then goes into the spinning circle.
Can anyone help?
I tried a re-restore again, and now my iPhone 4S is stuck in DFU mode.. it won't leave DFU mode and show the apple logo no matter how long I hold the buttons (have held it for 5 minutes straight). Swapped battery out of iPhone and used with a different 4S and it definitely isn't a battery issue.

That problem is due to some redsnow problems, i solved it by creating a CFW using snowbreeze, then doing the restore process in redsnow's Restore option

yah I had the same problem last week when I was trying to restore. btw, the new redsnow just came out and it fixes that issue. A bit late unfortunately for you...

it has worked smoothly with 0.9.15b1 but i wanted to reset my iPhone 4s (5.1.1) because apps crashed after jailbreak, i installed the b3 and I followed all the steps (under windows) as i did the first time with the b1 but it stucked at "updating baseband" and in that moment my rooter lost the internet connection (i don't know if it's related but i guess yes) and then i got the error 2601 i guess (i don't remember very well).
Now i'm sticking at reboot loop with the "progress bar" under the apple logo...

EDIT : Resolved ! I did put manually the iPhone in Recovery Mode, and give it a go (just ignor the popup that "device should be connected in normal mode")

The error states
"Re-restore Failed. You might have guessed the current FW incorrectly, and it may not really be iPhone4,1_5.1.1_9b206"
I know for sure I have the correct blob, because I used tinyumbrella to back them up(2683014341453-iphone4,1-5.1.1.shsh), and I downloaded the iPhone4,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw.

Not sure if this helps or if u guys already know, for those of u who do know just ignore me but "re-restore" on iPhone 4S only works if u did full restore to update to iOS 5.1.1 or when u were on iOS 5.1.1.
If u got to iOS 5.1.1 with OTA update, regardless if u have shsh blobs it won't work for u.
