Looking for help with IOS 5.0 tethered jailbreak restore
I am new to this forum, so I read the introductory posts, and also the FAQ on the problem I am having and have yet to come up with an answer.
I own 2 Iphone 4's, a while back I upgraded them to 5.0 (when it was new) and put on a tethered jailbreak. My wife and I have just been dealing with the tethered JB for a while. Most recently, I have upgraded our phones to Iphone 4s, only to sell the old ones for a little bit of money to add improvements to our house.
Now, the problem I am having.
From what I believe, because the JB I used was tethered, I am unable to restore the phone from it's settings because when it tries to restart itself, it can't be turned back on without a computer.
So what I've been attempting to do for the past couple weeks, was restore the phones to ios 5.1.1, so when I sell them hopefully attract a larger market for people who also want to JB them.
Tiny Umbrella says that I have the SHSH's saved from 5.1.1 (and many others). But also Tiny umbrella also has the option to set host to cydia on exit greyed out, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get that working.
Also, when I try to shift-restore the phone using Itunes, I get a slew of errors ranging from 21, 20, 1601 ect.
I've done many things to the host file (after backing it up of course), like adding the gs.apple.com links and such, to no avail.
So today I decided to bypass my headache and just upgrade the phones to ios 6.0.1, and hope the potential people interested in them were also not interested in jailbreaking them. But, when I tried to regular restore them from Itunes, I'm still getting the same errors, 1601 and such. Now, usually I don't post help threads on forums. I usually do google search after google search, having 100 web pages open at 1 time, refering from 1 to another in hopes that I might stumble upon the solution. But unfortunately I have come up short.
Also, being new to this, I don't quite know if there are some logs and such I need to post to better help people who are trying to help me.
