Help! I was trying to upgrade to the 5.0.1 firmware. I was currently on 4.3 and it was jailbroken. I wanted to upgrade to 5.0.1. SO i did a restore. so itunes said restore and upgrade and when i started that process the phone went int dfu loop and i keep getting the error 28. I downloaded ireb and did the pwnage thing so i guess its in pwnage dfu? What do i do now? Do i download custom firmware? Im very confused now please any help would be great!
