    Restore to the latest via iTunes to 6.0.1.
    Run redsn0w 0.9.15b3 to update to iPad bb.
    Run redsn0w again to downgrade iPad bb .
    Jailbreak with redsn0w to get untethered jailbreak.
    Add this repo to Cydia . Repo.iparelhos.con
    Install ultrasnow and ultrasnow fixer to unlock your 05.13.xx bb
    When running redsn0w ,use IOS 6.0 .

    Redsn0w from here http://blog.iphone-dev.org/
    If you want 5.1.1, with your blob stored in Cydia server. Use the restore feature of redsn0w to restore your iPhone. Remote fetching of blob when stitching to verify your restore.

    Once restore do ur upgrade to iPad bb n choose old bootrom if message pops up. Then downgrade bb again to be unlocked by Ultrasn0w

    My link is only dev team for you to download redsn0w and is working ..lol
    Once you have red snow n is self explanatory , use it to restore your iPhone. Don't use TU when restoring IOS 5.xx and above. It only takes less than 20 minutes to restore if you have already downloaded the firmware .
