I got brave and now my phone is stuck in recovery mode
Hi I have never posted on any forum but It this seems to be where all the knowlegde is . I Jailbroke my phone using redsnow and I accepted the baseband 6.1 big mistake it seems. I was haveing alot of trouble with it so I decided to just go back and restore it using iturnes. Now I know your not supose to do that so my phone is stuck in recovery mode giving the 1015 error I tried many things even reistalling redsnow and it seems like it is working but it goes right back to recovery . Is there away to fix my phone at all jail broken or back to factory defult I dont care . I wish i had left it alone . Thank you

If you have the iPad baseband on your phone the ONLY way you can ever upgrade or restore your phone is by using a custom ipsw made with Pwnage Tool(Mac) or Sn0wbreeze(Windows). An ipsw is the iPhone firmware and you create a custom one with the tools I mentioned. Go to iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials and go to Tutorial, iPhone and Jailbreak and read one of the Pwnage Tool methods. It doesn't matter which one it is the same process since the beginning. If you can't get Sn0wbreeze I can make you an ipsw email me. Do a search on here for my username I've given out links and this information too many times. Peligro911 is exactly right.
now my phone is suck with the snowflake help
SO i got the custom ipsw and ran restore throught Itunes .I did not put it in dfu mode and now its stuck in snowflake wont turn off or anything if you can tell me how to get out of this i understand the process now.
Thanks so much you all are very helpfull

I actually find Lockinfo to be one of the better apps in regard to battery--I think due to the skills of the dev. I've had other apps that are just tiny tweaks yet still drain battery faster.
If you're interested in giving Lockinfo another go, one thing I would suggest is not loading up a ton of RSS feeds, not having your weather update every five minutes, and so on--in other words, limit the how often it connects to the outside world instead of just your phone's info, and double check the settings (Lockinfo has a LOT of settings options!) to make sure you've got your Dim Delay, etc set up how you'd like.
(Can you tell I like Lockinfo?)

Jailbreak Apps that sap your battery
Lockscreen themes which connect to the web for time, weather, etc. unless they have a setting to adjust polling interval
Bytafont - you can get around it by intalling it, downloading and setting your font then uninstalling bytafont. However if you like to change up your fonts then you may have an issue
OpenSSH - If you have it make sure you get SBSettings and turn it off everytime you're finished
Themes - Using too many themes to change too many things is taxing for the system because the theme is over riding the stock icons, sounds, etc. So I usually try to incorporate my theme elements into one or two themes.
I never regulate the official Appstore apps but I always regulate the JB apps only because for me they are apps I only use once a day so they don't need to reside in the app switcher. So once I'm done using it ie. iFile I will go in and kill the app. I also do the complete Cydia updates and then reboot and reboot once all my JB apps and tweaks are installed.

Thank for all the battery info , would you be able to tell me why my phone keeps getting frozen and I have to do a hard restet to get it back . When ever i use it no matter what it is making taking a call checking email it will freeze on that . Dose anyone know if apple could reset a phone that was on Base band 6 or is it truly unable to ever go back .

I also notice you're on a 3G on 4.2.1, according to your profile. If that's the case I really can't suggest strongly enough that an upgrade--even to a 3GS, which are very affordable on contract--would make a great difference in your performance.
