    Default Need help restoring iPhone 4 to iOS 5.0.1
    Hello all,
    normally I could handle this but for some reason I just been out of the game although I have an iPhone 5.

    So here it is.... I have an iPhone 4 in which I want to restore back to version 5.0.1. This is the GSM version. I got my shsh from Cydia and iShshit. Now using tiny umbrella , I hit tss service and try to restore it from itunes using iOS 5.0.1 which I downloaded but get error message 1600 via recovery and DFU mode. Can someone please point to the right direction. Or is perhaps there is none... Thanks all.

    You can use redsnows restore feature under extras/even more. Or you can use ifaith to make a custom stitched firmware with your shsh built into it. Tiny umbrella TSS server method doesn't work on 5.X and up firmware.

    I get this error on itunes when using redsnow "this device is not eligible for the request build "

    I see that iFaith was not made for mac. Only windows at least I see.

    EDIT;
    **** Got the correct version on redsnow, but when using it to restore, I get an error stating it could not read the ipsw file... Any idea ???

    If you are having trouble with redsnow restore feature go to shsh instead and make a stitched 5.0.1 firmware. Then use redsnow to enter pwned dfu and option restore to that stitched 5.0.1 firmware in iTunes.

    Seems like the stitched 5.01 feature on redsnow is failing as well. Can I stitch it up any where else ??? Could it be my shsh ??? I got my shsh from Cydia.

    Thanks for your help and patients.

    I also might suspect its my iOS 5.0.1 ispw that might now be good also. Does anyone have stored a legit 5.0.1 iOS version. ???

    I got the iOS software from here and somewhere else. Both produce the same results.

    Are you entering pwned dfu with red snow first before trying to restore to stitched firmware in iTunes?

    Run iFaith as administrator and create a custom IPSW with blobs, then pwn DFU mode and restore with iTunes.
