Jbroke 5.0.1 w/snowbreeze
i jailbroke my iphone 4 using snowbreeze lat night and all is working great. it also comes with a reboot utility called ibooty v2.3, and all of us know that after a jailbreak we need to reboot to get that good ol cydia to work for us. the problem here is i cant get my iphone into dfu to use ibooty. apparently it needs to be in dfu so the utility can see the device and do its thing. if anyone out there has jailbroken on 5.0.1 and has used this method. please fill me in on how to reboot with ibooty. Yes... i have googled how to boot into dfu. all i seen was how to get into recovery, which isnt what i need right now. Any help and suggestions are really appreciated. Thank you

Your holding the power + home button for ten seconds, then releasing the power button, but continuing to hold the home button for ten more seconds? Should see a black screen and hear that iTunes recognizes the device. (turn device off and have it connected to your computer before doing this)
I'm new to jailbreaking, but that seems standard to get into dfu unless I'm missing something?

Not sure if this is what you are looking for or not... if I recall, redsn0w has a DFU boot mode that simply walks you through a DFU boot process that is a quick fix anytime you need to reboot a tethered jailbreak. Haven't used it myself, just heard it referenced in several other threads.

I may be wrong but....
If you jailbreak with snowbreeze, you CAN NOT boot tethered with redsnow. They use different exploitation methods...
to get into DFU mode you plug your iDevice into your computer... Power down the device, then, IN THIS ORDER...
Hold down power and count three
WHILE STILL HOLDING POWER,
Hold down the home button and count to 12 Mississippis,
CONTINUE TO HOLD HOME, BUT RELEASE THE POWER BUTTON and keep holding the home
Button until you see that your ibooty has recognized your device.... For good measure keep holding it until you know it's exploiting properly...

Just grab snowbreeze. It will JB 5.0.1 now ibooty. That will install as part of the snowbreeze package. It'll self install after the break has been made. Semi-tether. I'm not sure it that works or not. Haven't checked it out nor do I know anything about it.
Just make sure you get snowbreeze to JB 5.0.1
