    This is what I do on my 3GS... I think this works for a 4..

    I'm assuming you do not unlock. You will lose your unlock if you do this exact method.

    1. Download stock iOS 5.1.1 IPSW.
    2. Download redsn0w 0.9.14b2
    3. Run redsn0w as administrator in windows.
    4. Click Extras button.
    5. Click SHSH blobs button.
    6. Click Query button to see what blobs Cydia has for device.
    7. If Cydia has required blobs, Click Stitch button.
    8. Click IPSW button-browse for downloaded 5.1.1 IPSW file.
    9. Click Blobs-Cydia button to stitch remote Cydia stored blobs to IPSW.(or could do local if you have
    them local).
    10. Let Process and finish. It will take a few minutes.
    11. Click Back button-Click Pwned DFU to put in pwned DFU mode-follow onscreen instructions.
    12. Once in pwned DFU mode, close redsn0w, launch iTunes.
    13. iTunes will see device in "recovery" mode. Click Check button.
    14. Hold down Shift key, click Restore button. Browse to that stitched IPSW file
    you created.Select it.
    15.Wait for restore to finish as normal. JB as normal(or not)...Enjoy!

    Use Redsn0w 0.9.15b1, use restore button and remote or local for blobs to restore to 5.1.1 ipsw. No need to stitch, redsn0w will do it for you automatically.

    Did you use local blob on your pc or remote blob ?

    If using Vista or windows 7, have you set redsn0w in Xp sp2 compat mode.

    Hmmm, not sure why all these errors. If you don't have ipad bb installed and don't need software unlock, restore to the latest IOS 6.0 using itunes to see if your iphone is working or computer is letting you restore. You can always downgrade back to 5.1.1 if you have the actual blob.

    I am afraid to lose my baseband if I restored from itunes, thats why I did not try it. but I did try restoring to ios6 with redsnow 15b1 i also get the same error just at the end. By the way, the phone is stuck in recovery mode and cant fix it back to its original firmware 3.1.3.

    Do you know what is your baseband, it could be ipad bb and could be the reason for this error. Use redsnow to downgrade bb first ( 05.13.xx), then restore to 5.1.1 using redsn0w and choose preserve bb.
