iTouch 4G jailbroken stuck in recovery after erase all contents and settings
I have jailbroken my iTouch 4g ios4.2.1 with green poison and accidentally pressed the erase all contents, then it stuck there in reboot.
I tried restore using iTunes (it upgrades me to 4.3.5 automatically and I'm using tinyumbrella and ireb to bypass error 3194 and 1600), everything seemed ok and it gave me a message saying"reset to factory setting" something like that, then my iTouch screen went black and iTunes said my device is still in recovery mode and needed to restore. After the whole loop again I still got the same thing. I tried fixrecovery to kick my device out of recovery mode after the firmware was updated. But after showing all sorts of codes on the screen it went black again, still didn't work.
What am I supposed to do now? Really frustrated, need your help desperately...
You need an SHSH to restore to 4.x at this point, as Apple is only signing iOS 5. Do you have an SHSH on file for 4.2.1? You will not be able to restore to 4.x without one. iReb will not suffice as the OS will not properly restore at all without the SHSH or a personalized IPSW.
As a general reminder, jailbreak users should almost *never* Erase all Content and Settings -- it forces a restore before the device is usable again, and if the user doesn't have an SHSH, they can only restore to the most recent iOS revision that Apple is signing (which at this point is 5.0)
If you have no SHSH on file for your iPod Touch, you will be forced to restore to iOS 5 to get the phone working again. Use TinyUmbrella to see if Cydia has saved your SHSH if you didn't do it manually, that's probably your only chance at this point.
