Hi guys, after a little help.
Followed this guide and all went well, at the end of the initial jailbreak it ended up hanging on the black screen with apple logo.
Insstructions said dont worry just reboot as per step 8 which i did and all seemed to run well ending up with a small pwnapple logo for a few seconds but then went back to black screen with apple logo. From here i'm stuck.
I have tried everything i can find but only difference i can make is i can get it into recovery mode where itunes wants to restore. but even this fails. Any help greatly appreciated.
i'm running a ip4 and upped from jb 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 this morn. pc is on win xp. TIA.
What version of redsn0w do you have? It's been recently updated to work with iOS 5.0.1 (in that you don't have to point it at iOS 5.0 prior to doing the "Just Reboot" step).
So, please check to make sure you have redsn0w version 0.9.9b9d (get it from the Dev-Team Blog link f4780y posted in the first post to this thread). Hopefully, that's your solution, because I've no other reason why it doesn't work for you.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.
Unfortunately i am on the current version of redsn0w and still having no luck.
What i didn't mention in my first post is that i am getting error 21 with itunes when i get it into recovery mode and try to restore. Don't know if that may give any clues.
Thanks Marilyn for the help. Merry Xmas.
Update for anyone else in this situation.
Changed my host file back to apple and got rid of the error 21 and was able to restore back to stock 5.0.1. Still not sure why the JB failed?
I have updated (and simplified) the tutorial to reflect that IOS 5.0.1 is now untethered for A4 devices.

The tutorial should be updated to say you need to click on "extras" first and point to the 5.0 ipsw first.
