Problem jailbreaking tethered 5.1.1
I have the newest redsn0w 0.9.10b8 and ive jailbroken tethered many times, but for some reason my iphone 4 will not go into DFU mode. I go through the steps to enter DFU mode (which ive done a million times before) and redsn0w gets to "waiting to reboot" and the phone never goes into dfu mode, it just reboots.
I have completely restored the phone thru itunes before jailbreaking and checked ifunbox to make sure all the old jailbreak stuff is gone. is anyone else having this problem or knoows how to solve it??

One problem i came across on my computer, was cyberlink media espresso. Running win7 home pro 64 bit. shut off media espresso and bam it worked. On both devices i jb in my house i got to the spot of putting in dfu, started by holding home and power. once the jb started i let go of power and held home button til my speakers stopped making sounds. then i was home free

The op stated he is on 5.1.1 you need to download the iOS from the redsn0w website and keep it in the same location as redsn0w jailbreak tool. if you download the one for gsm and are trying to jb a cdma iphone you will run into issues.
