Hi, I've got a jailbroken iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3 which I want to upgrade to 6.1.2. I've checked cydia and the only SHSH blobs I have are 4.3.3 and 5.1.1 so can I do this without going to 6.1.3 or should I go to 6.1.3 and downgrade (if thats even possible without the blobs)?

Ya need the blobs to go to them firmwares no shsh blobs can't upgrade or downgrade then

It's not possible to downgrade from 6.1.3 but I'm pretty sure you can use the 5.1.1 blobs to go upiPhone 4 - iOS 7.0.4 Jailbroken

Do you actually have the blobs saved somewhere or is it just cydia that says you have them? Cuz if its just cydia it won't work. You would have had to back them up while apple was still signing that iOS version.

Then I'm not sure to be honest. It should work with redsn0w.iPhone 4 - iOS 7.0.4 Jailbroken

4. iPad2 owners (all three models) with saved 4.x blobs can use those instead, even from 6.x
if you have both 4.x and 5.x iPad2 blobs, you can always get to 5.x via the 4.x blobs, even if you’re currently on 6.x
you cannot get to 5.x from 6.x without the 4.x blobs (but you may still qualify for the iOS5-to-iOS5 restore described above)
if somehow you have 4.x blobs but no 5.x blobs, you can still go down to 4.x from 6.x
this only applies to iPad2 owners (they’re the only A5+ devices that ever had a public 4.x FW)
redsn0w still supports (but doesn’t require) jailbreaking A5+ devices at 5.0.1 and 5.1.1. Just head back to the first page after re-restoring to 5.x. It’s always much faster to jailbreak those FW versions with a freshly-restored device, before letting iTunes restore from a saved userland backup.
