question, does it have to be exactly 6.0 or can it be 6.x.x? i ask because i already have 6.1.2 but its no biggy if it has to be 6.0, as i can get that too.

Yeah , I live in Kitsilano neighbourhood .
The important thing is you are able to restore to 6.1.2, after that you can use evader to jailbreak.

If iFaith and redsn0w both say your APTicket is invalid, your SHSH blobs are unusable and there's no way to get to iOS 6.1.2 and get your untethered jailbreak.
If the last valid SHSH blobs from the query are 5.1.1, then that's the latest firmware you can go to (aside from 7.0.3). Be careful with the 5.1.1 blobs, as there were two builds of 5.1.1 for the GSM iPhone 4, make sure that you match blobs to the build (9B206 vs. 9B208, the two builds are nearly identical).

thanks for the input! luckily i came back here before proceeding lol. how do i know which build the blobs i have are for?

When you stitch a blob, make sure you are stitching to a firmware that has no baseband update or so called custom firmware ( do not stitch blob to stock firmware ) You are not going to be able to update your baseband anyway except the latest signing firmware.
Since you have 6.1.2 blob locally. Use Latest snowbreeze to build a signed Ipsw of 6.1.2 , put iPhone into pwned dfu mode and do your restore.

ok... sorry, but i am really confused right now.
just a recap:
1) in tinyumbrella, with "request shsh from cydia" option checked, i got:
iPhone4 5.0.1 (9A405)
iPhone4 5.1 (9B176)
iPhone4 5.1.1 (9B206)
iPhone4 5.1.1b (9B208)
iPhone4 6.0.1 (10A523)
iPhone4 6.1.2 (10B146)
iPhone4 7.0.2 (11A501)
without the option, i only got 7.0.2 to show up. i saved all those shsh onto my hd.
2) using redsnow, i did a fetch, and i only got:
iPhone3,1 403156571637 remote blobs:
5.1.1, 5.1, 5.0.1
3) i tried submitting the 6.1.2 blob i got from tinyumbrella back onto cydia with redsnow and it got rejected.
4) with redsnow, i used xxxxxxxxxxxx-iphone3,1-6.1.2.shsh to stitch onto iPhone3,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore and it was successful.
i tried using ifaith for the same stitching and it gave me the error: "the provided apticket does not look valid! ifaith will refuse to build an ipsw with this apticket as it may put your device in an unusable state"
yeow says i can, and orby says i cant.
i know that i can only upgrade to whatever blobs i have. the blobs from MY phone is only up to 5.1.1 but i was able to obtain 6.1.2 through cydia. so are the 6.1.2 blob from cydia not valid even though redsnow stitched it fine? sorry for all these questions. i just want to make sure before i give myself even more trouble and headaches :P
ps. did i use the right firmware for the stitch?

I understand why it's totally confusing.
Let's get a bit of background here on why all those 6.x blobs won't work, even though Cydia saved them, from Saurik, the author of Cydia. The quick takeaway: "Specifically, I am writing this to tell everyone that the TSS data Cydia saved for iOS 6.0-6.1.2 is unusable."
Even though redsn0w will allow you to stitch your local 6.1.2 blobs to a 6.1.2 firmware, these blobs are likely invalid and are unusable, just like iFaith and redsn0w's "Submit" are trying to warn you. I'm sorry, but this means that iOS 6.1.2 cannot be installed and jailbroken on your iPhone. Try the stitching and restore process with iOS 5.1.1 (9B208) instead. If the 208 build doesn't work, try again with the 206.

Not to confuse you any further, just follow Orby's Instructions.
