How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have the iPhone 6. Updated iTunes, airplane mode on, passcode and find your iPhone off. Ipsw in the right place... I've tried rebooting my laptop (Asus running windows 8.1) I opened the pengu program as the administrator... I'm out of ideas. My laptop knows my phone is plugged in (beeps and I can find it on windows explorer)

Does iTunes detect your device? If it doesn't, reinstall iTunes.

Yes that worked! iTunes driver hadn't installed successfully my phone wasn't being recognized in iTunes either so fixing that issue fixed the jailbreak one!
