    Hello,
    I have a iph4 Verizon.
    I was jailbroken on 4.2.8 via Jailbreakme.
    At some point I installed something (never found out what) and my device was stuck in a safe mode loop.
    Meaning I could not get out of safe mode.

    Anyway I tried to restore (shift restore) and I cant get out of restore mode (the cable to arrow iTunes)

    I have tried using iREB-r4, TinyUnbrella (latest version), fixrecovery but no mater what I do I cant get out of the recovery screen.
    I even tried to update to 4.2.10 in a desperate attempt to end this 4 hour ordeal.

    I have the stock 4.2.8 on my PC, but I keep on getting error messages (1601, or 3014) after I attempt to do any restore.

    I am at a loss.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, at this point I don't care if I get stuck with 4.2.10 and have to wait for a jailbreak option.
    Not my first choice but its better then were I am at now.

    Thanks

    I tried that and its not getting me out of recovery mode.
    Thanks for your reply. I am SHOCKED that no one else has in over 48 hours.
    This used to be the place to go / be when super support was needed.

    Guess all things must change.
    This time in a negative way.

    Not sure what to do next I have a device that has been in recover mode (iPhone cable, into iTunes disc) for 2 days now.

    Thanks again

    Don't use tiny umbrella if you want to restore to the latest. You need 4.2.8 blob if you want to restore to 4.2.8 .

    Yes I have the 4.2.8 BUT my devise is stuck in Recovery Mode.

    Didn't I correctly open this thread with that as my main problem?
    No disrespect but I have tried iREB-r4, TinyUnbrella (latest version), fixrecovery, and I m stuck in Recovery Mode it wont reset.

    Hold power + home button 6-8 seconds to force power-off your phone and try restoring to the latest again.

    If you still have problems, force power-off the phone again, run the latest redsn0w to enter 'pwnd-DFU' mode and try again.
    iREB pwnd-DFU and redsn0w pwnd-DFU use different procedures. Redsn0w is the more reliable user-friendly method.

    It's OK if the phone powers on after the power+home power-cycle.

    Is redsn0w tethered or untethered?
    I never used this method.

    Do I need to run redsn0w every time I re-spring?

    I installed a app called gestures that was released today, and well it never came back on after I re-sprang as the app required.

    Restore and jailbreak again I go

    Thanks

    It depends upon the iOS. 4.3.3 and below are untethered. 4.3.4 and above are currently tethered except for the special old-bootrom 3GS

    Tethered means redsn0w just boot tethered is required every boot.

    Edit. And for CDMA: 4.2.8 is untethered. Anything above that is tethered.

    I dont know why this is so hard.
    I am stuck at the cable iTunes disc AGAIN!

    Using redsn0w I can get it into DFU, I then try shift restore within iTunes but it fails and fails and fails.

    I find myself back in the state its been in for a while now, USB cable and iTunes music not in a disc.

    Ive tried iREB v4, tinyumbrella 5.00.10 nothing is working for me.

    Advise?

    If your iOS version is higher than 4.2.8, it needs a 'tethered boot'.

    If not, a custom firmware (cfw) restore sometimes works better than anything else.

    Verify you have 4.2.8 SHSH blobs with Tiny Umbrella
    Use pwnagetool (Mac) or sn0wbreeze (PC) ... build a cfw in simple mode.
    Continue with pwnage or sn0wbreeze .... and enter pwnd-DFU.
    Start TU, then start TSS server. Verify TSS server is running.
    Shift (PC) or option (Mac) / select cfw and restore w/iTunes
    No errors are expected.
    Done with restore and jailbreak.
