I actually do not have a 4.x, only a 5.1.1, and a 5.1.1b

Damn, ok, we still may be able to get this to work. Try making a custom stitched 5.1.1 firmware with redsnow. Then enter pwned DFU with redsnow. Then restore to that 5.1.1 stitched firmware in itunes.

Sorry, but may I ask you to elaborate on creating a custom stitched firmware,
I'm at SHSH blobs > Stitch
It's asking for an Ipsw file, do I look for my old 5.1.1 ipsw, or do I download a new stock firmware?

Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!

Alright I created a stitch a stock 5.1.1 to a remote shsh blob that I had retrieved through tiny umbrella yesterday.
To recap: my phone is still in (soft dfu) mode, no back light. It's off and won't respond to the 'kick out of DFU, power + home pressing method'
I will attempt to throw in pwned DFU mode, but it says "Prepare to enter pwned dfu mode" with the instructions, no way for me to click next since it is greyed out.

Took me a couple of tries to get into pwned DFU correctly, but I got in.
Tried restoring to 5.1.1 custom
Oop. Error 3194 iphone could not be restored.
Shall I try a recovery fix?

I was afraid of that. That's what I was getting earlier. Only way I found around it was to go to 4.X firmware first then restore to 5.1.1 using redsnows restore option.
You always have the option of going to 6.1.3 until ih8snow figures out the ifaith issue. At least you will have a working phone then.
I do have one more idea to get to 5.1.1 but not sure if it will work. It involves going into pwned dfu again. This time use snow breeze expert mode to make a custom 5.1.1. Use ireb at end to enter pwned dfu. Now here is the curve ball. Run tiny umbrella and run the TSS server. Then restore to the custom snow breeze 5.1.1 firmware in iTunes. This should work and leave you in a similar dfu mode after the restore. But this time you will be on 5.1.1 in this dfu mode. Close tiny umbrella at this point. Then fire up redsnow. Go to extras, even more and click restore option. Choose regular 5.1.1 firmware with redsnow and choose not to update baseband. Then enter pwned dfu again same way I told you before to get redsnow to jump to next window.
Let me know how that goes if you try it.
I really wish I had a iPhone 4 I could try all this on. I would be able to help you a lot easier if I did instead of trying to explain all these things without being able to try myself. Oh well

Unfortunately, I will have to take my chances and try to take 6.1.3. and just run away with it while I wait for a future jailbreak. What is the method to go to 6.1.3. Will I have to thrust my phone into pwned DFU or regular DFU, then restore via itunes?
It's alrightt, the world of jailbreaking is an unknown realm of dangers.

Alright, I'm finally seeing some light coming from my phone. I don't want to speak too soon though.
[EDIT] I have survived the craziest 24 phone-less hours. Satisfied with a phone, albeit not that thrilled about losing jailbreak capabilities. However, I am satisfied.
Thanks a lot for savin my *** from them Apple technicians.

thanks for your reply! i already tried, but it didnt work. so maybe i got something wrong. so here is your post again with a few questions i have to be sure to make it right:
Ok, here's what you can do to get back to 5.1.1 and jailbroken:
Open tiny umbrella and save all those shsh locally if you haven't yet. ----- OK
Run the TSS server --------OK
Open itunes and shift restore to 4.2.8 or 4.2.10, doesn't matter which. ----- SHOULD I TAKE THE STICHED IPWS OR THE ORIGINAL? I AM GETTING ERROR 27 HERE...
You will get error 1 or 1015 near end of restore, this is normal. --- GOT 27 INSTEAD....
Use redsnow and choose fix recovery
Once it boots up use redsnow again, this time go to extras>even more>restore. Choose the 5.1.1 firmware for your device. Choose not to update the baseband when given the choice.
Redsnow should put you back to 5.1.1. From there you can activate and use either redsnow or absinthe to jailbreak again.
the rest is still unknown sinche it didnt work in the firstplace..
