    I am trying to use redsn0w 0.9.9b6 with iOS 5 and a Verizon iPhone 4 of course. The baseband is 3.0.03 and whenever i try to jailbreak it on my macbook, it ALWAYS freezes on the "waiting for reboot" stage. I try to put it in DFU mode and the screen just goes to a backlit black... i have the latest version of iTunes and everything... what am I doing wrong??????

    You need to do a tethered boot.

    Plug it in, open redsn0w and click the Just Boot Tethered button

    When you ran it the first time did it complete to where it said "Prepairing Jailbreak data"? Are you doing it from work? I had a problem doing mine from work and I think that it was caused by the firewall. I did it at home and boom 2 minutes and it was done. If you're doing it from home then maybe you downloaded a crap copy go to iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials go to Tutorials, iPhone, Jailbreak and download the version there. Then try again

    What are you trying to achieve? You said you have trouble booting the phone, yet you mention iTunes, which has nothing to do with your JB via redsn0w.

    Do you mean after your JB, it won't boot? What happens? Is it stuck forever on the boot logo?

    These are the steps to JB on iOS 5.0.

    Upgrade/restore to iOS 5.0.
    JB using latest redsn0w.
    After your phone reboots, do a tethered boot to fix the white Cydia icon.

    Should be done.

    Tell us where you are having problems, which step?

    What are you doing with the BB.ipsw? Are you trying to preserve your baseband for some reason? If you're on an official carrier you don't really need to do that--sounds like maybe you're making it more complicated than it needs to be.
