Hello Jaxov, I have a jailbroken iPhone 4 running on a custom iOS 5 beta 1 which was created using Sn0wbreeze 2.8b2. But I decided to downgrade after getting some app crashes, and have noticed that the beta is quite laggy. So I tried to downgrade back to iOS 4.3.3 using already saved SHSH Blobs but ended in recovery loop. TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) isn’t working on iOS 5. I’m on Windows 7 32 bit and using iTunes 10.5. Please help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Recboot has a very easy to use interface, to kick your iOS device out of recovery mode loop all you need to do is connect your iOS device into your Mac via USB and just simply click on “Exit Recovery” button to kick it your of recovery mode loop (or click on “Enter Recovery” button to put your iPhone into recovery mode). You can also utilize Recboot to bypass iTunes 1015 restore error. You can download RecBoot 2.2 for Mac OS X using this download link.
On the other hand, kicking your iPhone from recovery mode loop using iRecovery is quite complicated in comparison to RecBoot. To fix recovery mode loop, just download and install iRecovery and libusb on your Mac. Power OFF your iPhone and connect it into your Mac via USB cable and put it into DFU mode.
Just simply hold down home and power button for 10 seconds then release the power button but keep pressing the home button until your PC produces a beep sound and iTunes will prompt you that it has detected your iPhone form recovery mode. Now, restore and manually load firmware 4.3.3 (by pressing Alt + Restore and select the firmware that you want to downgrade to). During the end of recovery, the procedure will stop and return the iTunes error 1015. Just neglect it. Now click OK on the pop-up, and then close iTunes and open terminal and type the following command at the terminal:
cd Desktop (or folder where you copied iRecovery)
setenv auto-boot true
Once encoded, wait for few seconds and disconnect your device and restart it by pressing the Power and Home until the Apple logo appears. Once turned on, connect to your computer, activate it and use it normally.
