Worked fine for me, iPhone 4S 5.1.1
However I had to search google to find out how to get OUT of DFU mode~ this should be listed as the last step in this tutorial

it SEEMS that it worked on my 4s and it only took 1 try and about a minute. If it didn't really work then I don't really care since I wouldn't update to 6 unless if that were jailbroken or if 6 is so much better than 5.1.1 that I don't care about the jailbreak at which point why do I care about the stitching and jailbroken 5.1.1.
btw to get out of dfu mode simply hold home and power buttons together for a few seconds and it will restart normally.

I have a iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1.1 and this didn't work for me. Anybody have any ideas because I really like the the logic behind doing this

Thanks for this timely article! I knew I'd need to do this before iOS6 dropped, but I hadn't taken the time to learn how since APtickets came into being.

I use an iPhone 4 with iOS 5.0.1 (also a 3GS with the same).
I used iFaith to create a custom IPSW but restoring on the 3GS didn't work. Haven't tried on the iPhone 4.
Anyway, my question is, will this process create a restorable IPSW for my iPhone 4 and/or 3GS on iOS 5.0.1, or do I NEED iOS 5.1.1?

I hate asking these questions, but will it work on the iPad 3?

I follow the guide but I can't get this working on my Iphone 4S with 5.1.1 . But I can't get this working because I think it's impossible to with Iphone 4S since this device doesn't support Pwned DFU yet.
If someone, who has a solution, can help me I would really appreciate it

Tried that the restore goes all the way till the end of restore where confirming with apple then the error pops but I got a fix and it worked.
After the error I put the phone into DFU mode and then jailbroke with redsnow and the phone started up.
Hope this helps others.

This would be great IF IT WORKED.
I did this to all my iDevices. iPhone 4, iPad1 and iPad3.
The other day I upgraded my iPhone 4 to IOS6. Didn't like it so I restored back to 5.1.1.
I had to use the original 5.1.1 as this patched version kept failing when I tried.
Today I upgraded my iPad 3. I found out it cant be jailbroken so I tried to downgrade to 5.1.1.
FAIL. Again this patched file DOESN'T WORK.
So, yea, you can add SHSH to the files but it WONT WORK.
Even when the iPhone 4 was doengraded to 5.1.1 I tried the patched file again and it still errors and fails.
TOTALLY USELESS and DOESN'T WORK.
