Attempting a jailbreak with redsn0w 0.9.8b7 on iOS 4.2.10 CDMA.
Re-booted the phone tethered fine the first time and installed some apps through Cydia. Since the apps required a reboot, I manually powered off the phone so that I could re-boot through redsn0w. The problem is every time I go to re-boot through redsn0w I never get the phone to turn back on. It just sits on the pineapple logo forever and does nothing. After about 5-10 minutes it will switch over the Apple logo and just sit there again.
Not sure if this is it but can the phone trying to boot back up on it's own (WITHOUT redsn0w) be causing it to screw itself up and lock me out?
Here's what i'm doing:
unplugged my phone after opening cydia (not sure if I should have)
I installed apps on cydia, then manually shut the phone off instead of selecting "Reboot device" in Cydia
plugged my phone BACK into the USB and it tried to force itself back on w/ apple logo (Is this where i'm messing up?)
quickly put phone into DFU mode, selected "just boot tethered right now" and im stuck
