I was upgrading to 6.1.2, saved my blobs using iFaith, built the signed IPSW with iFaith, used the DFU-pwner in iFaith and restored the phone using iTunes. Everything seemed to work fine, the iFaith logo and a progress bar showed. But after finishing I am still in DFU mode. redsn0w recognizes it as in "Soft DFU".
I cannot seem to get out of this mode. Here is what i tried: - holding any combination of Power/Home brings no effect - rerunning the DFU-pwner only detects an "unrecognized device" - updating the firmware again with iTunes results in an 1600-error - tinyumbrella's fix-recovery does not have any effect
What are my options to get out of this state? Downgrade to 4.x/5.x? Upgrade to 6.1.3 :(?
Okay. Only way to see any kind of response. Get redsn0w, download the 6.0 IPSW from any site. JUST 6.0. Open redsn0w, click select IPSW, open the 6.0 IPSW. Next click Just Boot, after going back. It should say connected in soft DFU. Now hold the power and home button together till the next button activates on redsn0w. Click Next without releasing any button. (DONT FOLLOW THOSE INSTRUCTIONS)
Keep holding both buttons for 4 seconds and then release the power button but keep holding the Home button. Now redsn0w will turn your device on. But you have to do a tethered boot everytime so just downgrade to any 5.X.X iOS. That's what I'll be doing too....Tell me how it goes. Needless to say you can only downgrade with your Blobs and a PWND DFU state which you can enter using the instructions I mentioned while booting. No other set of instructions seem to work with my iPod.
Good Luck. Keep Posting
