    Hello all,

    My iPhone 4S current firmware now is 5.1.1 jailbreak . There are some apps I need to install to the phone but it required the iOS 6.xx. Question is can I upgrade to 6.x.x and jailbreak again? if yest what should I do? What do I need to prepare for the restore and jailbreak?
    My current saved SHSH:

    iPhone4S 6.0 (10A403)
    iPhone4S 6.0.1 (10A523)

    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.

    Correct me if im wrong, but he should be able to download the iOS 6.X.X firmware and then redirect to the Cydia signing server to upgrade to iOS 6....

    Go into the Hosts file on your computer, found here ;
    CWindows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X)
    And add this to the bottom of it (Cydia's signing server) ;
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    Hit the thanks button if i helped in anyway

    That'd work for an A4 device (assuming the Cydia SHSH blobs saved were valid--many for iOS 6 aren't); the 4S is an A5 device.

    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.
