Unable to tether reboot after JB iP4 at 5.0.1 - help?
I followed these directions to the letter:
Jailbreak 5.0.1 iOS Semi Untethered iPhone, iPad, iPod touch With Redsn0w/SemiTether | Redmond Pie
Which were exactly the same as these directions:
Jailbreak 5.0.1 iOS Semi Untethered iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch 4G, 3G With Redsn0w 0.9.9b8
I'm using redsn0w 0.9.9b8
To be clear, I updated to 5.0.1 on my iPhone through iTunes. I setup the phone as new and have not done anything other than go through the preliminary Apple required iOS5 setup stages of the device. I then performed the JB using redsn0w while selecting the 5.0 (NOT 5.0.1) IPSW as per both directions.
After the JB, I shut off the device and attempted to perform the "Just Boot" direction in redsn0w (basically a DFU boot)... during the process it says "exploiting with limerain..." again and then trying to verify the build and I then get the message about "Unrecognized build". Cydia remains a white icon that will not launch. I've tried this three times with the same results. Screenshot attached from redsn0w.
I would VERY MUCH appreciate any feedback. Not reassuring to follow 2 identical sets of directions using the most uptodate version of redsn0w and get these results... but I'm hoping this is operator error as many others seem to be doing this just find.
Thanks very much for any assist!

I faced the same question as you.
And I finally got the answer. Now I can JB my iphone4.
The key point is that before you click "Just boot" to tethered your iphone., you need to click "Select IPSW" again and specify to ios 5.0 IPSW again. After that, you can success JB your iphone.

Down pretty far on this page is a list of links I'm not sure what your trying to jailbreak so this list has them all.

Yes if your 5.0.1 you will need to download 5.0.0 and use that in redsn0w in order to jailbreak and boot tethered.
Idownloadblog had a good video on how to jailbreak 5.0.1. It's worth looking into on their site for more information on jailbreaking to get familiar with it and everything that can/will go wrong.
