01-29-2013, 10:45 PM #1Jailbroken CDMA iPhone 4S 5.1.1 restore.
Hey guys, I did a quick search and found a few things that helped me but...
I am trying to restore my 4S running on 5.1.1 and the gevey unlock.
I am using windows, what program do I need to use to "sign" the 5.1.1 iOS so that iTunes will install it?
I modified a file and put in the new ip I found to remove/delete and I got another error after that.
Can someone help me out what steps I need to take to restore? I can't just erase all content and settings because I forgot the password to do so. And on top of that I need a complete restore because the phone is acting very glitchy.
I am going to tackle this again this weekend, once I get a chance. I spent a few hours the other day just to get no where
Thanks in advance for the help guys!

When you say "sign" you mean stitch the shsh blobs to the 5.1.1 ISPW?
Then use redsn0w

+1. In Redsn0w>Extras>SHSH blobs>Stitch
That process is assuming you've already fetched your SHSHs. Stitch will pull up window for you to select an ipsw to stitch the SHSHs to. Use a stock ipsw. If the restore is unsuccessful with a stitched stock ipsw, you can also you a custom ipsw as an alternative. Custom ipsw can be made by pwnagetool or sn0wbreeze.

Thanks guys, trying this right now...
I keep getting "Sorry, that isn't supported on the iPhone 4S yet" with ANYTHING I try to do while using redsn0w 0.9.15b3 :/

So...why can't you simply update to 6.1 and jailbreak? You've got a Gevey sim, right?Quaerite et invenietis.

The gevey wont work with 6.1/6.0
I have been smashing my head googling errors and getting new ones and nothing works. I'm gonna try another PC. This is very annoying, and such a pain in the *** for the last few weeks...

You cannot stitch shsh for a 4S. If you are currently on 5.1.1 you can re-restore to 5.1.1 using redsnow's restore feature under extras/even more/restore. Redsnow will actually do the whole restore for you, no iTunes needed. The one stipulation for this is that you have your 5.1.1 shsh saved.
