    Default Restore problem iPhone 4S from iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 5.1.1

    Hi everyone,
    I came across to this forum and need some help in restoring process.
    I get following error when try to restore my jailbroken iPhone 4S from iOS 5.1.1 to the same iOS 5.1.1:
    'Couldn't restore
    It seems the APTicket flashed on the device cannot be re-used for this hack.

    If the current firmware was installed via an OTA update or at the factory, its APTicket contains the wrong data for this to work.'

    I've saved SSHS blobs and believe that everything has been done correctly so don't know where the error comes from.
    I use the latest version of redsnow.
    My iPhone hasn't been updated with OTA method.
    Any suggestions highly appreciated.
    Thanks again for your help.

    same response as every thread like this...
    did you stitch the blobs together?
    did you use red snow to put your phone into pwned dfu state?
    did you try and restore through itunes? (using shift+restore)

    some people have luck using redsnow to do the "re-restore" some people have luck using itunes

    Well, when you updated to 5.1.1, did you do it OTA, or though iTunes OP? If the former you cannot re-restore, as the error message pointed out.
