iPhone 4 Stuck in Recovery Mode Loop After iOS 5 GM Jailbreak with Redsn0w

Guys, please help. I have managed to jailbreak my iPhone 4 using Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 on iOS 5 GM. After jailbreaking, I decided to boot my iPhone into tethered jailbroken state. For some reason, I found out the performance of my iPhone bit laggy, so I decided to reset it. After resetting, my phone is now stuck in recovery mode. I tried fixing it using Redsn0w’s Recovery fix but no avail. Can anyone please help me? Thanks.

Hello Melvin, you’ve probably downloaded a corrupted Redsn0w. Try to download Redsn0w 0.9.9b3 from here again if you are on Mac or uing this link if you are on Windows. Then just simply connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC and launch the downloaded application. Followed by clicking on the Extras and then select the Recovery fix option to kick your iPhone out of recovery mode loop. Then all you have to do is to wait for the process to complete and you will be able to use your iOS device after a minute or two.

If the recovery fix of the Redsn0w doesn’t work, then the standalone TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) will definitely do the trick for you. You can refer on the tutorial posted below to fix your iPhone using TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery):

Step 1: Get the latest version TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) for Windows (Direct Link) or Mac OS X (Direct Link).  Also, download Zlib1.dll using this link. After downloading, move the Zlib1.dll in the same location where fixrecovery43.exe is saved.

Step 2: Connect our iOS device into your Mac or PC via USB cable and power OFF your device.

Step 4: Now, launch both iTunes and TinyUmbrella (Fix Recovery) and then put your iPhone into DFU mode.

  • Just simply hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds.
  • Then release Power button after 10 seconds but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds.

Step 5: That’s it! Just wait and you are good to go.
