Unfortunately, I believe your options for a 4S right now are either to restore to 5.1.1 or go all the way forward to 7.0.3. Sorry about that.

uhmm so you saying I can not use any of 6.x.x version at all even I have an SHSH saved?. I really don't wantta loose jaillbreak . iPhone w/o jailbreak, I'd rather use the Android device. Sorry for all iFan but iPhone really suck and boring if no jailbreak.

Unfortunately, the use of random number "nonces" in the iOS 6 signing process means that any cached SHSH blobs will not match* the new random number freshly generated for this particular restore, so another exploit is needed to reuse these cached, "stale" blobs.
*Theoretically, the odds that a particular nonce is picked are one in 2^160, or one in approximately one and a half quindecillion (1.4615x10^48), so for purposes of expediency, I assume that an identical nonce will not be generated again by the same device.

Ahhhh, Makes sense, it had been a long time since i've dealt with this kind of thing. Updates are always nice! "Hit the thanks button if i helped in anyway
