why ask the same question everyone else is asking right now?

  • Question number one: do you have SHSH for 6.1.2?
  • Question number two: what iOS is on your phone just now?

We'll go from there

If you have blobs for 6.1.2, you can very well use the ifaith mode of sn0wbreeze to cook custom firmware and putting your phone in Pwned DFU you can shift+restore in iTunes. But please note that the jailbreak for 6.1.2 is tethered and you have to use redsn0w - just boot everytime you reboot. And one more clarification, you don't have to have 6.1.2 on your phone to have blobs for 6.1.2 to be saved on cydia server. If you are on jailbreak and ever opened cydia when apple was signing 6.1.2, blobs get automatically saved, without we doing anything. Cydia does that honorary service for us :)

Can you tell me that step by step, and about the jailbreak why is tethered? won't it work if i download evais0n package from cydia? i have complted upgrade to 5.1.1 from redsn0w but i tried to upgrade to 6.1.2 but it doesn't work. and i try from itunes shift-restore but it doesn't work too i get error 3094 the first time and then 21 the secound time.

At this moment the best untether jailbreak option for A4 and below devices is only on 5.x if you are in stock 4.x or 5.x, (tethered JB by redsn0w and untether by rocky raccoon from cydia)! And for users(factory unlock) who restored to stock 6.1.2 before apple stopped signing (when blobs were not required) are still/ can still enjoy convenient jailbreak by evasi0n. Now it is not advisable to restore to 6.x as the jailbreak is tethered (because of the current problems with cydia blobs) Those who have SHSH blobs fetched by tinyumbrella/ifaith from apple server (and not directly from Cydia) should not be having a problem restoring to iOS 6.x. -jailbreaking by evasi0n/sn0wbreeze/redsn0w+evasi0n untether from cydia!!

Error 3194 is generally because the blobs were not stitched so iTunes is trying to contact apple server and is not getting approval to install the ipsw 6.1.2(because apple is not signing that).The local stitched blobs trick the iTunes to believe that there is ok from apple server.

i do a restore with a signed ipsw 6.1.2 but then itunes finish and say the iphone should restart the iphone still black and itunes say it found a device with recorvery mode and then i connect to redsn0w it says Iphone 4 (soft Dfu mode) What should i do now?

(24 Mar '13, 08:19) mobiler mobiler's gravatar image

Run redsn0w, click 'select', choose 6.0( if you don't have on your computer, please download), then go to 'just boot' and click that and you should have the home screen!

(24 Mar '13, 08:23) sandkuma002 sandkuma002's gravatar image

then i click just boot i have to enter dfu mode not soft dfu mode how could i do that? when i try hold first the power it says there soft dfu mode.

Do you see in cydia evasi0n untether? If yes, please install that and then reboot and check what happens and share!

I have and iPhone 4 8Gb locked to tmn portugal. It's firmware is 5.1.1 (9B206) and the baseband is 04.12.01. What should be the best way to JB and Unlock this iphone? I have no SHSH, no blobs, nothing.

Thank you very much.

SHSH and blobs are not really relevant here, if you ask about unlocking.

There is no software unlock for iPhone 4 unless you have an 01.59.00 baseband. So just use some factory unlocking service (which doesn't need any jailbreak) if you know which network is your phone locked to.
