How to fix some mysterious problems.

I am using sn0wbreeze to restore my iPhone with verizon. It is a 4s 16GB. I downloaded the file from sn0wbreeze and went into DFU pwner and everything. When I do open the file from iTunes it is saying it does not recognize the format or file. I might be trying to use the wrong file as well? If someone could help me I would certainly appreciate it!@

What you can't do that 4s only restores to latest version which is 9.0.2.

To what iOS version are you trying to restore to ? Why on earth use snow breeze ?

Dont believe everything you read on the internet. If you are trying to restore, just plug it into itunes and click restore

What iOS are you on, and what iOS are you trying to restore to?

-1 is usually a blown baseband, especially on the 4s. You probably have yourself a shiny paperweight.
