Use add comment to answer us, don't edit the question. Plug it into iTunes on your computer that its sync'd with. This should clear that message.

There is no public bootrom/iboot exploit for A5 devices which means:

  • There is no way to access your APticket as they are independent of the rootfs on NAND, your only bet is to see if Cydia has the blobs (which is exchanged between AAPL's server and your phone) cached already.
  • There is no way to o past password locks since there is no injection vector to access rootfs in DFU mode.

Password locks on A4 and pre-A4 devices can be broken by uploading a custom ramdisk via limera1n, in other words they are not safe and anyone with physical access to the device can pull any data from it.

I wouldn't go as far as say "anyone" could have access to it, it certainly requires specific knowledge and resources to do it. Also if you've changed your root and mobile passwords it is even that much more difficult as well as having a six digit or non numerical password. So while the iPhone 4 is not an impenetrable bank vault, it's a very secure piggy bank.

The iOS 5.1.1 signing window has closed, so for A5 devices, you can no longer grab the SHSH blobs from Apple or from the device. Your only chance is if Cydia cached them.

As far as the passcode lock is concerned, you cannot jailbreak an iPhone 4S, or use TinyUmbrella at all without first disabling the passcode.

Do you know this is their phone and its not a lost or stolen phone? How did you restore the other backup since iTunes won't connect to it without entering the passcode?
