    I just received a replacement iPhone 4 from Verizon and i'm trying to jailbreak it. I'm running redsn0w 0.9.12b1. After going into DFU mode and starting the jailbreak, I get stuck at "waiting for reboot." The phone reboots but iTunes closes. What gives???

    No luck guys. Should I try restoring it factory and THEN try to run absinthe/redsn0w?

    Absinthe says "sending initial jailbreak data. This may take a while....."

    How long is a while?!?!?!?!?

    Shouldn't take too long. Did you do a backup then remove all settings and content?

    This is a new phone... Maybe he's trying to restore from a backup...
    Maybe the backup is 5.0 or something... I think op should restore
    Phone as new, then run whichever jb he wants...
    I've personally used both now, absinthe seemed quicker, until I realized redsnow pretty much jailbreaks the same way now, so I recommend redsnow
