If you are getting a 60000ms error on your iphone after a jailbreak with
redsnow, your only option is to snow breeze on a windows os. After you
download the 5.1.1 iswp file and have the current version of itunes. Use
snowbreeze to create a custom ispw. After that is finished use ireb in
snowbreeze to enter pwned dfu mode. Then restore from your custom ispw file
that you made from snow breeze and set up as a new phone.
NOTE If you get a 3014 error from itunes make sure you have enough room on your hardrive (AKA not red) you have a good internet connection, and briefly turn off your firewall till you jailbreak your iPhone. If you still get the 3014 error go here( http://www.iphonehail.com/fix-itunes-error-3014-3004-3002-1053.html ) and follow the steps to fix your host file. If you still get the 3014 error use a different computer to restore to the custom firmware you made, and then use iBooty to boot your idevise tethered.
Before you start all the steps i said, ensure that your phone actually boots up,
do not try when you have no screen or the apple booting screen, or the
greenpoison screen or a white screen.
Here are the download links. Enjoy!
Official steps from the dev team blog:
Use the “Extras->Select IPSW” button in redsn0w to tell it which firmware version you have installed (new-bootrom 3GS users can usually skip this step but it doesn’t hurt for them to do it too).
- Do a controlled shutdown of your iPhone (“slide to power off”). This step is very important to avoid mount problems when the ramdisk is running!
- Go back to the first screen and click “Jailbreak”. Enable the “Downgrade from iPad baseband” checkbox, disable Cydia if you already have it installed, and click Next proceed through the normal DFU ramdisk steps.
You can find your serial number in Settings > General > About > Serial Number

How to check if you have the old or new bootroom
Not only will this fix the GPS but it will make your device look like it was never jailbroken or unofficially unlocked. It will also make your iPhone warranty valid and not void, or at least not so bleeding obvious you jailbreak'ed it by installing an iPad baseband.
This will also enable you to get your phone officially unlocked through your carrier, possibly for free, which will mean you will not need to install Ultrasn0w.
You can Upgrade or Downgrade to Any Version
Any 3G / 3GS (old [note you can use fuzzyband for old bootroom] and new bootroms) above 05.13.04 can be temporarily and safely updated to 06.15 BB for the purpose of downgrading to the official 05.13.04.
Step 2: Download your correct IPSW for your device and version (latest: 5.1.1)
Step 3: Ensure you have the latest version of iTunes for your system, if not:

Step 6: Plug your iPhone into your computer via USB
Step 7: Open iTunes
