Did you ever save them with ifaith or tiny umbrella. Cause the thing is cydia had issues with 6.0 firmwares and all blobs were corrupted. Soft dfu mode happens when updating to 6.0 with corrupted shsh blobs. And can be a pain.

Well turns out I have blobs for 5.1.1,6.01,6.1 & 6.12 I think I can use Redsnow to open the IPSW and the blob to upgrade..I can't find any tutorial just ones on downgrading, but just read in the tutorials here that the blobs are no use so now confused if I can't I don't want to attempt it and bugger the iPad..
So does any one know how I can use the blobs to upgrade to 6.12?

Here are the requirements for you to upgrade/downgrade firmware on iPad 2. You must have the following SHSHs:
1. Saved SHSH blob on iOS 4.x.x
2. Saved SHSH blob on iOS 5.x.x
3. Saved SHSH blob on iOS 6.x.x (Saved by iFaith or TinyUmbrella; note that iOS 6.x.x auto-save by Cydia are invalid).
Based on your post, you don't have the iOS 4.x.x blob, so there is no way for you to upgrade/downgrade to any firmware except for the one currently signs by Apple (6.1.3).
