I have an iphone 4 I want to fresh install and jailbreak before selling. It has not taken an iOS update (no shsh blobs on file either) since 5.1.1. Is that my only option for a jailbreak now? I assume it is, just wanted to make sure there are no backdoors I could use to still get 6.1.2 on there or something.
I assume that since I never bumped it up, or even loaded TinyUmbrella or Cydia while it was signing newer firmwares, I'm stuck with 5.1.1 or 6.1.3.

However, if you got to iOS 5.1.1 via a restore (as opposed to an upgrade), you can use redsn0w or iFaith to fetch the blobs off your device and upload those to Cydia, so you'll always have the ability to restore to and jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 (which is better than nothing, IMO).
