    Default Recovery mode after accidental update

    Hello! I'm an ***** and after jail breaking my phone with redsnow I upgraded to the newest os. Well as a lot of you probably know that causes a recovery mode issue. I've been playing abound with Tiny Umbrella but to no avail. I've tried to re-jail break the phone but to no avail. Redsnow keeps telling me I need Iphone3 5.0.1 9a404. I'm about to shatter the phone into pieces as I've spent well over 8 hours trying to figure this damn thing out. I also tried to downgrade to 4.3 with itunes but that's no good either. I even tried to get absinthe to work but it won't even recognize my phone.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

    Ok so if I go into itunes and just let it download the 6.1 upgrade I can re jailbreak it and it should be fine? What happened was that I updated in my settings then went into recovery mode. It asked me to download the software to recover via itunes.

    The 4S model does not have a jailbreak available if you are on iOS 6+ as of right now but I'm hearing possibly we will soon.
