    Default Iphone 4 Boots to itunes screen after jailbreak

    Hey all,

    I've tried researching this through the forums, I've found a lot of people with the same issue as me but there are no solutions posted. My apologies If this has been covered under another topic, I did try to search for it.

    My issue is that when I use Greenpois0n, or redsn0w to jailbreak my verizon iPhone, it says it is successful but it boots to the itunes screen. I have a macbook, Verizon iphone 4, with 3.2.1 installed on it. The newest version of itunes. I tried using Greenpoison RC5 and RC6, attempted to use redsnow 0.9.8rc8. everything says its successful but no luck on the boot. I Have attempted and restored the iphone 4 times already, and each time I try greenpoison I make sure to delete the old files located in contents/macos.

    My Greenpoison Terminal log is as follows...

    Try putting the iPhone in DFU mode, make sure your file hosts in your computer isn't edited by TinyUmbrella. If so, reinstall iTunes. Hope this helped.

    You need to boot tethered after successfull jailbreak... In redsn0w there should be a boot tethered option.
