    Default Upgrade jailbroken iPhone 4s from 5.1.1 to iOS 6
    I am in Australia which requires GSM, I purchase my 4s online and was locked to VERIZON. The person I purchased from was unable to contact VERIZON so my only option was to jailbreak then use an R-sim ultra s gevey to unlock phone. It has worked perfectly for 12 months now. I am now wanting to upgrade it from 5.1.1 to 6,and have a new gevey card that will unlock Verizon IOS 6 ready to install after upgrade.
    Is it possible to do this upgrade? If so I would appreciate step by step instructions as I'm a dummy when it comes to these things unless it's clear.
    Thanks

    You can only upgrade to the latest 6.1.3, but careful, if you do it, there is no way back. And 6.1.3 can not be jailbroaken.

    Oh really, my son was confident to go ahead without this help but seems we learning things we didn't know! So are u saying that an iPhone 4s can only be upgraded to the highest 6 and none below? If yes why cannot it be upgraded to a 6.01? Or any under 6.1.3? Is it just that i need to wait for a jailbreak to be available for this?

    iOS 7 will be the next jailbreak out there they not gonna make one for 6.1.3 which is the firmware you would have to go that one. iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 had a different chip which makes them different like the iPhone 4

    I didn't know I could do an IMEI unlock, every place I tried to take it to here when I 1st bought it told me they can do that with any provider except for Verizonthats the reason I got gevey card.
    Of you can help me do unlock without gevey that would be fantastic
