If Someone could please help, I would really appreciate it very much. I Have a Iphone 4 S and i did a jailbreak with Snowbreeze. What Happens is that my iphone with 5.0,1 ipsw is not detected in recovery mode by itunes, or my computer it says that their is a error with the USB driver. i have put it in recovery mode several times switched USB PORTS, And still it is not detected. it boots then freezes. and after a few minutes restarts on the start screen. I gave this phone to my wife. but forgot about the jailbreak. she let it die, and by then i did a complete reformat. i have tryed deleting itunes. and installing itunes 7.5 and still not detected. but when i connect a different iphone it gets detected. i hate to give up on something i been working for so long.

i have also tryed different computers.and still nothing . i think the jailbreak ruined it . no matter what i do the phone is not detected. if someone someone HELPS i will thank them very much. last time i ever jailbreak.

snowbreeze i heard was for the older iphones, you should have jailbroken it with absinthe .4

Try a factory reset and then google absinthe jailbreak and download the latest version, which is .4. mine detects perfectly on itunes, wifi and plugged in. i have the 4s as well.

That is quite an assumption. Not all people reading this thread are experienced at jailbreaking, some are new to it and may not know the risks involved. The thread is not just read by the experienced it is might also be read by slickdeal members who might be curious what it's all about.
