Fix Endless Recovery Mode Loop After Downgrading & Jailbreaking iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3

Hi, I used TinyUmbrella to downgrade my iPhone 4 back to iOS 4.3.3 and then re-jailbreak it using JailbreakMe 3.0. However, my iPhone crashed after restoring my app backup via iTunes. And when I re-connect my iPhone to iTunes a message popped up saying that “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes". So I repeated the entire process but I still get the same error after syncing my device. Is there any way available to fix this? Is there something wrong with JailbreakMe 3.0 or iOS 4.3.3? I am confident that you guys can help me. Thanks.

Hello Richard, well, JailbreakMe 3.0 is working fine on all iOS devices (i.e. iPhone 4 [GSM and CDMA], iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, iPod Touch 3G, iPad 1, and iPad 2) that runs on iOS 4.3.3 firmware. You are currently experience endless recovery mode loop. To fix it, you can use iREB (for Windows only) by iH8Sn0w (the main man behind Sn0wbreeze jailbreak tool for Windows) to kick your jailbroken iPhone 4 from endless recovery mode loop. You can refer on this step by step guide on how to use iREB tool to fix recovery mode loop. And in case iREB doesn’t work, then you can use the standalone TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery), which is available for both Mac OS X and Windows users. The instructions on how to use TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) can be found on this link.

In addition, just for security purposes since your iPhone 4 was jailbroken with JailbreakMe 3.0, you can download and install PDF Patcher 2 to patch the security hole used by Comex to jailbreak iOS 4.3.3 so that it can not be used by other for malicious purposes.
