    Default Need help with Redsn0w

    Here's my situation - I'm attempting to jailbreak my iphone so I can unlock it and use it on TMobile, however I'm having quite a bit of trouble jail breaking it. First I tried on my PC with redsn0w and it would constantly get frozen in the "Uploading ramdisk" portion. After 3-4 times of failing on my PC, I went to my laptop which has windows 7. Finally, I could get past the point where it says "Uploading ramdisk" and redsn0w would say it was complete and it worked. However, my iPhone would not restart automatically and instead, it would be stuck in this mode where the screen is on, but it's displaying a really dark blue almost blackish light. I had to restart the phone just so I could boot it up, andd low and behold cydia wasn't installed and it wasn't jailbroken. I tried this a good 2-3 times but each time the phone wouldn't restart after redsn0w said done. I've watched videos and it appears that the phone is supposed to restart and some lines of code or something will flash on the screen for a few seconds, then it will boot - my phone doesn't do this.

    I'm running 4.2.1 and baseband 5.15.04. Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you tried this solution?

    Otherwise, it's either outdated iTunes version (needs to be iTunes 10.1 or higher) or a USB problem (could be either with the phone or with your cable/computer)
