    Your jailbreak should be untethered jailbreak with Absinthe 2.0.4 at 5.1.1, you don't have todo a tethered boot. Have you done a restore and rejailbreak again.

    Hey iyeow is right its untethered but I know how you booted tethered and that was a good try but I think if your trying to keep your baseband unlockable why not use snowbreeze if using pc or pwnage tool on Mac to create a custom firm that will not update your baseband setting and will already be jail broken absinthe is still a newer jailbreak with still some issues so try the custom firmware and I doubt you'll have that same problem or use the most reliable jailbreak which is redsnow

    Also I'm not sure why you would want to go past 5.0 on a 3GS anyways cause really the 3GS runs the best on 3.1.3 but I know you want the multitasking that 4.0 came out with and iMessaging that the 5.0 came out with but past that I would stick to 5.0 I mean 2 of the updates past 5.0 was just to patch the jailbreaks so no added benefit but there may be a reason it's just a thought I hope it works for ya

    5.1.1 runs fine on a 3GS. It's not the smoothest, but it works. 4.2.1 runs the best on the 3GS though, and it will always be that way.

    Apple is gonna give the 3GS iOS 6, so that certainly says something...

    +1. 4.2.1 or 4.1 actually is a good fw version for the 3GS to be on rather than 3.1.3. But I do agree, Absinthe seems to be more problematic than Redsn0w (in my own personal encounters). I would do as iYeow suggest and restore and reJB. Perhaps try the jailbreak this time around with Redsn0w 0.9.14b2.
