1 Load redsn0w

Windows users - Make sure you right click and run as administrator every time you load it.

2 Navigate to " Extras > SHSH blobs > Query "

If your device is connected the ECID should automatically be there. Or use * to query all.

This will show you what SHSH files you got for the device and what it can be restored to..

3 Download the stock IPSW File that you have SHSH Files for.

4 Navigate to " Extras > Even more > Restore "

5 Hit the IPSW Button and load your stock IPSW you downloaded and follow the steps to enter DFU.

If your SHSH are saved on cydia's server ( listed in query ) hit the " Remote Button "

If you have the SHSH files backed up on your computer you can load by hitting " Local "

Say yes to preserve baseband if you need a software unlock ( ultrasn0w )

Then just sit back and let redsn0w restore the device..
