    You have a 3GS, so you can restore to 4.1 at any time since Apple still signs 4.1 for 3GS. Just put the phone in normal DFU and shift restore to a regular 4.1 firmware. You dont have to use tiny umbrella for this.

    No prob. And no donation needed, it's what we do here

    Not looking good right now from the recent chatter on twitter. I don't know exactly what is going on but it sounds like blobs saved just from cydia are not going to cut it for going to 6.X for iPhone 4 or new boot 3GS. It sounds like you will have needed to be on 6.X firmware and have extracted the SHSH directly from the device itself using iFaith or redsnow to be able to be "good" SHSH in order to get to 6.X firmware.

    appears to be like it..

    however, the devs of redsn0w will likely fix this issue in regards to restoring back to iOS 6.x with saved SHSH blobs, so I wouldn't be too pessimistic about it

    Just to understand, are the shsh blobs from cydia WRONG or just unusable by ih8snow?

    Don't do that. 6.1.3 will most likely never have a jailbreak. You can get "good" blobs using tiny umbrella. You just have to make sure you request them from apple and not Cydia.

    They are missing some vital stuff. Blobs obtained with ifaith itself, redsnow, or tiny umbrella requesting from apple are good. Problem is you would have had to request them back when apple was still signing. So the only way it seems to get good blobs now for 6.0-6.1.2 is extracting them from device itself of you are on that firmware.

    You can't.

    Give it some time. The devs may find a way around these "bad" Cydia blobs. You may have to stay on 5.1.1 until iOS 7 comes out though, that will be next time a jailbreak is released.

    If you got them from apple then they should be good. From cydia then they are not.

    I have not had a chance to check tiny umbrella but I just check ishshit and via cydia is not checked by default so I should be good at least one way.
