iPhone 4 4.3.3 stock
I want to FIX recovery using redsn0w... but just that! I want to jailbreak using jailbreakme.
I DONT want to hacktivate and it is not OK for redsn0w doing so and having me to undo it and so. No hacktivation for me. Nor installing Cydia or doing anything this time. Just fixing recovery. Not that big deal I think? This time, all I want to use redsn0w for is fixing recovery loop, NOTHING else is allowed.
Is this the proper way to do so?
Just fixing recovery, NOTHING ELSE!
(I like redsn0w but this time I only want to fix recovery and theres no such simple tool that only does that)
update: Doing this in DFU mode... my iPhone seems to freeze with this nerdy command-line mode... lines are not moving nor is recovery fixed...
What to do? I want to jailbreak using jailbreakme!!
I dont want to have my filesystem "stashed" or even touched by this means, I want to purely use jailbreakme!! Why isn't there a simple tool that doesn't do anything else than fixing recovery!!
UPDATE I tried fixrecovery43 -- unfortunately it didnt work. Its known that its usually not working
It just occured to me that you havn't mentioned simply plugging it into Tiny Umbrella http://cache.firmwareumbrella.com/downloads/tinyumbrella-5.00.10.exe and using it's "exit recovery" and then "fix recovery" option. That is usually the most cooperative for me.
OR, you could try reinstalling your firmware and preventing the recovery loop from occurring in the first place but following this method:
Use iFaith to create a completely individualised firmwarepackage using your 4.3.3 shsh blobs and a stock download of 4.3.3 firmware: http://www.limera1n.cc/2011/05/ios-433-firmware-ipsw-download-iphone.html. At this point open up Tiny Umbrella, start the TSS server and leave it running in the background.
Then the tricky part starts, follow the steps in Redsnow 0.9.6rc16 https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc16.zip?attredirects=0&d=1 - to put your phone into PWND DFU using the STOCK firmware you initially downloaded, AND THEN shift+restore in iTunes selecting that CUSTOM firmware package you made with iFaith. So long as your host file wasn't as messed as the last girl I saw, u shouldn't get any errors here... :)
When iTunes finishes You may need to reboot, but afterwards you'll be able to run your freshly installed firmware through jailbreakme.com and have it install your cydia as desired.
This may be more than what you want, but it's an option.
Not sure if iReb would work at 4.3.3, you can also try FixRecovery43 from here for windows http://cache.firmwareumbrella.com/downloads/fixrecovery-win.zip or here for Mac http://cache.firmwareumbrella.com/downloads/fixrecovery-osx.zip

did you try the downgrade again using the update baseband feature checked? and sometimes you have to use fixrecovery43 a couple times before it works with the 1015 error
