10-12-2013, 07:29 PM #1J/B iphone 4 on 5.1.1; Do I upgrade or stay where I am? (have 6.1.2 SHSH)
Been on 5.1.1 for awhile now because I prefer to be jailbroken. Saw a thread a couple days ago about upgrading to iOS 6.1.2 and doing the ev4sion J/B for that, but as I got into reading more, it seems that you can't do it because Apple stopped signing that? I'm looking to stay untethered.
So should I upgrade to 6.1.2, 7.0.2, or keep the jailbreak on 5.1.1? Opinions would be great! Thanks!

Awesome, thank you! That's a long read but looks well explained. I will def read that.
If I don't have the blobs, would it benefit me to do a DFU restore to my current version (5.1.1)? My phone has gotten slower and slooower over the years. I've never done a DFU restore, just a regular restore.

Ok I just read saurik's article. Am I correct in understanding that with an older iPhone 4 I may be able to run 6.1.2, provided that either the latest version of redsnow (what version is the latest?) or iFaith can capture the needed TSS data to be used for a restore to 6.1.2? Or am I not quite getting it?
So from a practical standpoint, I need to download the latest version of redsnow or iFaith and it will walk me thru how to get that info?
Also, if none of that works and I want to re-restore on 5.1.1, I should uninstall iTunes 11.1 and install 10.5.xx?

Ok, I downloaded TU and saved my SHSH's twice (once with "Request from Cydia" checked and once unchecked).
These are the SHSH's I have in TU:
Does this mean I can follow this ([How-To] Using tiny umbrella to update/downgrade/restore) to restore to 6.1.2, then use evasion to JB? If so, one other question is, how do I go about doing a DFU restore to 6.1.2 then? Or download redsn0w and do it thru there?

Using redsn0w v.0.9.9b9d, Extra-> SHSH blobs -> Fetch, I get an Unrecognized build, Error with SHSH blobs! It says to check to make sure I'm using the latest version of redsn0w and whether my iOS version is supported yet. Not sure if I have the latest version of redsn0w because there's no "Even more" option under "Extras."

Did a Fetch SHSH and it said I have nothing to do; Cydia already has a FULL set of blobs for this configuration. Build: iPhone3, 1_5.1.1_9B206.
I'm not 100% sure what a FULL set of blobs means. I went ahead and stitched the iPhone3, 1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore build with the 6.1.2 blob I had to create a DFU IPSW. Then did Extras -> Even More -> Restore and used that custom IPSW. Everything worked up until the point where I needed to be in DFU mode. I put it in Pwned DFU mode like it says, and redsn0w tells me that it's not in the right mode; that I misunderstood the instructions. Lol. Did I do something wrong? Or is this route just not working?

You entered DFU mode (with the screen totally off) not Recovery mode (the iPhone has a "Connect to iTunes" logo on screen), right? To be honest, I've never seen anyone have an issue with redsn0w not recognizing a truly DFU mode device correctly... if it continues, try entering DFU mode before opening redsn0w, since redsn0w will skip the instruction sequence if it detects a device already attached in DFU mode. Make sure you connect your iPhone to your computer while it's turned on, then hold down the power button and "Slide to Power Off" before starting the DFU access sequence.

When I put it in DFU mode before opening redsn0w, then did Extras -> Even More -> Restore I got the error message "Found none of the expected files to stitch in IPSW" then the location of the IPSW I *thought* I stitched.
Extras -> SHSH Blobs -> Query -> returned only the 5.1.1 remote blob. Is that an issue (if I'm trying to get to 6.1.2)?
Do my 6.1.2 blobs need to be in a certain folder in order for the restore to find them?

Redsn0w will only pull blobs from the remote server when doing a restore... and if redsn0w is only seeing the 5.1.1 blobs on the server, your 6.x blobs are likely corrupt and thus unusable. You can try submitting your local SHSH blobs (Extras -> SHSH Blobs -> Submit) from TinyUmbrella (they're in ~/.shsh on OS X, I'll have to look it up on Windows), but they're probably not valid if TinyUmbrella saved them, so submitting them may be of limited use to you.

sorry for the bump, i am on the same boat, only i am on 5.0.1. any updates to this?
i tried using ifaith to build signed ipsw with blobs but it gives me an error. it says "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"
i got the blobs from tinyumbrella with the request shsh from cydia option checked.
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)
i saved it all onto my harddrive.

What firmware are you trying to go to?
10-23-2013, 04:49 AM #16
when i did the redsnow shsh blob fetch, it did say exploit failed and theres error with shsh blobs
when i query, this came up
iPhone3,1 403156571637 remote blobs:
5.1.1, 5.1, 5.0.1
i was able to stitch iPhone3,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore.ipsw firmware with xxxxxxxxxxxx-iphone3,1-6.1.2.shsh to create a new custom firmware (i just replaced that number string with a whole bunch of x's for me being a bit paranoid) :P . i just want to make sure everything is fine before i go ahead to try and do a restore (if thats even still possible).
i also tried submitting the blob i retrieved through tinyumbrella through cydia back into cydia via redsnow, it got rejected.

You pointing it to 6.0 ipsw? Ya need to point it to 6.0 ipsw or it won't work
10-23-2013, 05:31 AM #18
I'm not sure what you mean pointing at 6.0 ipsw. Which step of the process or steps I did are you referring to? I dont think anything I did required me to point to an ipsw other than stitching. Stitching went fine.
I'm just not sure if I can upgrade to ios6 given the problems I had
