Trying to update iPhone 4 firmware from 4.0.1 to 6.1 while preserving the baseband (01.59), but still no luck, both in OS X and Win redsn0w keeps telling me "Could not find recovery mode device" (or smth like that) on the "Uploading iBSS" stage. I have all blobs remote (from 4 to 6.1.2), i'm selecting the right firmware (iPhone3,1_6.1_….).

How can i get from this error?

UPD: iTunes also can't put the device into recovery mode (sticking at the "Preapring iPhone for recovery…" stage). WHats the reason for this strange behavior?

plug your device in normal mode then turn it off then unplug your device then hold your home button (while holding home button) turn on your device and quickly plug it again and keep holding home button this should lead you to recovery mode then just use recovery fix from redsn0w and it should work
