My iPhone 4 GSM, on baseband 4.11.08 (unlocked via SAM and activated ticket saved via redsn0w) and firmware 5.0.1 was being prepared for updating to 5.1 (build 9B176). I prepared a custom No-BB, Cydia-sourced shsh blob stiched IPSW for restoring via iTunes. iTunes accepted the file, and proceeded to restore.
The progress bar seemed to go well, when, at the last message, I was told that the iPhone had been restored to factory settings. It wasn't an error message.
I used the redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and IPSW 5.1 9B176 for this procedure.
What did I do wrong?

Fixed. Was able to repeat the process, but this time used redsn0w's Restore feature as opposed to iTunes'.

Im glad u fixed your problem. I guess so many people still uses iTunes to restore there devices. Some always run into problems spending many hours and days at time to find a work around the iTunes errors.
Using redsn0w restore is the most easiest method of restoring you will probably ever fine. I always recommend this method especially if your device has been jailbroken before.

I used iTunes because in redsn0w, it says something along the lines of "Now your device is ready to be restored in iTunes" after setting it in Pwned DFU mode.

Regardless of the re-restore option for A5 devices. Restoring with redsn0w on ANY idevice will eliminate any errors you normally get from iTunes.

I'm just basing this on my experience with iTunes & redsn0w. I personally will not use iTunes anymore to restore or upgrade as long as redsn0w available.
But everyone has their own opinion on different jailbreak tools.
