SHSH blobs are unique in three ways:
1) They are unique for your particular device. I can't give you some from my phone and have them work for you.
2) They are unique for each version of iOS. You can't use iOS 6.1.3 blobs to install iOS 6.1.2, for example.
3) They are unique for each installation of iOS. You can't use iOS 6.1.3 blobs saved from the last time you restored to install it on your phone again--you have to get new ones from Apple.
Now sometimes these rules can be bent, broken, or worked around... now is not one of those times. You can either stay on iOS 6.0.1, or you can restore to iOS 6.1.3. Those are the only two choices right now. Sorry.

I'm really curious how the 3rd party websites manage to unlock Idevices with only having the IMEI number.
I would have figured either you need the phone to unlock with a software unlock or get apple or in this case at&t to actually unlock it from their end how do they actually manage to complete these unlocks anyone care to shed some light on this for me?

Out of interest, why can it not be unlocked if purchased after Jan 26? What's the big deal?

Ok I managed to change the hosts file like it says on the net but I am now getting error 11...
Is there a way to remove the evasi0n jailbreak or someway to bypass this error so I can reinstall my current OS again? or even a way to update to 6.1.2 if I have to don't want to go 6.1.3

Okay, so you actually don't need to restore to get your unlock.
Use redsn0w's "Deactivate" feature (Extras -> Even More -> Deactivate), and then open iTunes. If your phone has been unlocked successfully on AT&T's end, then iTunes will pop up with a message about "Congratulations, your iPhone has been successfully unlocked!" and you'll be dandy.
