    THIS FIX IS REPORTED BY A USER OF OUR FORUM KIMS:

    1) replace your iTunes to earlier V, preferably (V9)
    2) having saved the 4.1 file, you downgrade your iso back to 4.1. Note your baseband will remain 06.15 as it can not be reversed. (that is ok)
    3) use Redsn0w 096b5 (new one) only to install Cydia, this is because you retained the baseband 06.15.
    4) execute Cydia and JB your fone, followed by Ultrasn0w download and execute.
    5) reboot your phone and it should work like a charm.

    Good Luck and don't stress out as it is reversible

    It mean's the itunes files cannot be read untill you update your itunes again.

    So once you finish jailbreaking/unlocking.....Just update yor itunes again and it should see the file's again. And music should be restored.

    dawbrain THERE IS AN INFO (NEWS SECTION) about the 'SAM' subscriber artificial module, SAM provides activation via iTunes on a unsupported carrier, what is interesting to you is the fact that if u do as SAM-s recomends u get some benefits like:
    1. valid certificates
    2. push notifications works without additional installing
    3. BETTER BATERY LIFE( users reported up to 60% better)

    so read the news section!
