What error you gritting. If ya don't have the shsh blobs for it you won't be able to do it

thanks for the reply... no i didnt stitch the shsh blobs to the custom ipsw, should i use shsh blobs when upgrading from ios 5 to ios 6? i thought shsh was for downgrading and yea i saved my shsh blobs with tiny umbrella. what should i do?

If you have a 3Gs with an OLD bootrom, you can just create a custom firmware from sn0wbreeze without stitching the blobs, and you can restore to any ioS 6.
If you have a new bootrom, then its more complicated because even if you have shsh blobs saved, you must have saved them "locally" to your hard drive either from redsn0w or ifaith when Apple was still signing them.
If you saved your shsh blobs from tinyumbrella, then they are worthless and cannot be used to restore back to any iOS 6.
To check whether you have old or new bootrom, follow the instructions from this site:
How to Check iPhone 3GS New Bootrom / Old Bootrom (iBoot) Version | Redmond Pie
Then download ifaith program and verify the blobs to see if they are "valid".
Then answer 2 questions and we can further assist you:
1. Is it the OLD bootrom or new?
2. Are the blobs valid?

i checked the blobs and only 6.1.2 and 6.1.3 of all my ios 6 blobs are valid, and yes i have an old bootrom 3gs.

can that be done without stitching the 6.1.2 blobs? if not how can i add the blobs to the custom ipsw in snowbreeze?

since its an old bootrom 3gs, that means i can put it in pwnd dfu mode and downgrade to any os when im ready right?
