If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

When I am trying to jailbreak my iPhone 4 tethered on IOS 5.1.1 it will stop and wait for reboot and not do anything for hours. I have tried using the 5.1 IPSW, but it will never go through with the Jailbreak. What should I do?
