Tethered reboot question
This morning my phone crashed and got stuck at the Apple logo. I ended up restoring and re-jb'ing but it got me wondering: how do I do a tethered boot in that situation? Because redsn0w makes a point of telling you to turn your phone off before entering DFU to boot tethered—but I couldn't turn it off. I couldn't do anything with it. Can I just enter DFU from that screen, or is there a way to power down that I'm overlooking?
Thanks for the help—I've only had untethered jbs before.

If u aren't able to turn it off, you won't be able to boot tethered. It's required. Since u can't boot tethered, I would recommend going back to stock.Alex Nguyen

i hold the power button and home button (so it restarts) while i have redsn0w open and then go through the steps it tells you to boot tethered.
it acts like it was powered off.
works every time for me.
