    This morning my phone crashed and got stuck at the Apple logo. I ended up restoring and re-jb'ing but it got me wondering: how do I do a tethered boot in that situation? Because redsn0w makes a point of telling you to turn your phone off before entering DFU to boot tetheredbut I couldn't turn it off. I couldn't do anything with it. Can I just enter DFU from that screen, or is there a way to power down that I'm overlooking?

    Thanks for the helpI've only had untethered jbs before.

    If u aren't able to turn it off, you won't be able to boot tethered. It's required. Since u can't boot tethered, I would recommend going back to stock.

    i hold the power button and home button (so it restarts) while i have redsn0w open and then go through the steps it tells you to boot tethered.
    it acts like it was powered off.
    works every time for me.

    Thanks guys, that's actually what I did earlier--even though it worked, I decided to restore anyway. Good to know that I can just do that though in case it happens again, I wasn't sure.
