White iPhone 4 won't JB!
I currently am running my white iphone 4 on 5.0.1(9A405) and have downloaded Redsn0w 0.9.10b1. Every time I try to JB it, I do the whole power button then home and power and finally just the home like usual. Then redsn0w identifies my device uploads the first packet and the second packet then it says waiting for reboot. But my device just reboots like normal. I have also tried to boot it from DFU and nothing happens when I do that either my device just boots up like normal. And redsn0w doesnt identify that it ever went into DFU mode. Also I have tried downloading and doing everything that I just said with Redsn0w 0.9.10b3. if anyone could help me I would appreciate it!

Hold the home button the whole time until waiting for reboot. Try that and post back.

If I do that then the connect USB icon comes up to connect it to iTunes. I tried it 4 different times and got the same result. Any other suggestions? Thanks btw.

Did you install a fresh iOS 5.0.1 before attempting to JB? Also if you were previously on a tethered 5/5.0.1 JB you need to restore before jail breaking again. Let me know, I'll help you trouble shoot what's going on.

I have the same problem. This is a new phone I just got last week. Even tried restoring the phone and still didn't work. Had no problem with my other 2 phones that I first upgraded from the original 4.2.6 firmware. Tried dozens of times with the new one it just boots normal.

Mine was on 4.2.6 until about 3 weeks ago when pod2g said it was ok to update. So it was 3 weeks old if that matters. My last jailbreak was untethered. It was either green poison or jailbreak me. At least I'm not alone. Seems like there are a handful of people with this sawe problem. Thanks again.

I updated about three or so weeks ago when I was told it was safe to sooo idk??? Maybe a whole wipe might do the trick and do a back up then JB? You think that would work?
And this was my first JB on my iPhone 4

Had the same problem
Here was my solution :
Make sure you downloaded the correct IPSW for your phone.
When you open up redsnow go into "extras" first then to "select IPSW" select the IPSW you downloaded and go back to redsnow main screen and proceed to jailbreak.

Some of the people haven't been using the IPSW.. The DFU could be the problem but I know I was doing it correctly, just the IPSW was not selected. So I urge people to select the correct IPSW before jailbreaking.
