    if cydia shows you have 5.0.1 shsh blobs then you can downgrade back to 5.0.1.

    Create a custom firmware using sn0wbreeze or redsn0w and run tinyumbrella, put phone in DFU and restore in iTunes pointing to the custom firmware

    i downgraded to 5.0.1 from 5.1 on an iph4, but can't seem to get a jailbreak to work. i have tried redsnow and snowbreeze, but to no avail. i am able to get phone into DFU mode and when i try and install the JB from itunes it hangs on "Preparing iPhone for restore..." and then i get an error 1601 or 1602 from itunes. i have tried many many times, but just can't seem to get past this point. any suggestions would be great. i have been searching everywhere to find a solution.


    Edit: after changing computers, all went well!

    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!
