Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 for OS 5
Well, I upgraded this morning to OS 5 as did everyone else. I successfully jailbroke with Redsn0w 0.9.9b3. Installed everything in cydia I had, synced all my music and apps back through itunes, and restored from a back up. After restoring, the phone rebooted of course as it always does, so I booted tethered using redsn0w. Once the phone came on, there was a screen that said restore from backup successful. I hit the continue button and it just resprings and goes back to the lock screen. when I slide to unlock i get the same message again and each time I hit continue it just resprings and does this over and over, any ideas?

It happened to me even on 4.3.3. MobileSubstrate just wasn't ready. It's all updated to support iOS 4.0 now.
But guess it's not ready for iOS 5.
Restoring from a backup doesn't change things. It's all the same, as long as you have MobSub spazzing out. Once you respring, there's a chance it will go into the infinite respring loop of death.
One way I worked around it back in 4.3.3 was respringing through SBSettings.

I'm working on the tethered Redsn0w jailbreak right now for ios5, but whenever I get to the rebooting section, nothing else happens. What could I be doing wrong? I've watched the video on how to use it but is there anywhere i can find a more basic walk through?
