    Hi All,

    I tried the 'Restore' option on redsn0w and it failed.
    Now that I managed to restore back my old iOS version 5.0.1, upon boot up.
    It says that my iPhone need to be activated with some russian email appleId:
    t*****@mail.ru

    Can anyone please help?
    I don't know what to do now :(. I have never seen the russian appleid before.

    It would help to provide which device and what was the condition/what was done to it prior to the issue in a more extensive description.

    Thanks willerz2,

    After reading thru the redsn0w's Restore feature, i thought of giving it a try.
    I tried it on my iPhone 4 (5.0.1),
    I followed the instruction and select the 5.0.1 IPSW, but somehow it failed, and my phone stuck in Recovery Mode.
    I managed to restore back to my old 5.0.1, but now my phone is stuck at 'Activating iPhone' with some Russian appleid that I never see before. it starts with:
    t*****@mail.ru.

    I tried jailbreaking it, but it became hacktivation, which means I can't use my phone now :(.

    Please help..

    Thank you in advance.

    Thanks willerz2,

    Can you please advise on what is the Restore that you are mentioning?
    like should I flash in my ios 5.0.1 again?

    Is it possible that due to iTunes problem?
    While trying out the 'Restore' function, i actually downloaded the older iTunes from some site that host the old iTunes app.
