01-15-2013, 07:39 AM #1iphone 4 upgrade to 5.1.1 and JB?
Here is my predicament
I currently have an iphone 4 running ios 4.3.3 BaseBand 04.10.01. I also have a chinese Gevey Unlock SIM which only costs me 2 or 3 dollars but it does work and allows me to use a UK Vodafone Sim in the phone which is locked to UK T-Mobile. the phone is also Jailbroken.
I want to upgrade to IOS 5.1.1 (due to a lot of apps now requires IOS v5+)
I have tried going through the process of upgrading to v5.1.1 while preserving baseband using redsn0w and i got nearly all the way through but i got the iTunes error 3194.
My question is, is there anyway to install IOS 5.1.1 on the iphone now?
The only reason for preserving baseband is so I can use my Gevey Unlock SIM which requires 04.10.01 or under.
I , however, did read that ultrasnow fixer is a software unlocker for IOS 5.1.1 but Im not sure if it would work on my baseband 04.10.01
I cant get the phone unlocked as it was bought from a random on ebay. Some shops will unlock it for 100 GBP but I dont want to pay all that as it costs more than the phone is probably worth.
I dont want to upgrade to IOS 6 either as my Gevey doesnt work on IOS 6.
Is there anything I can do install IOS 5.1.1 and then jailbreak it?

If ya don't have the shsh blobs for that firmware you can't update to that one.

ah, ok , so i guess its the same for ios 5.01 and 5.1?
if so my only hope is to wait for a Gevey for iphone 4 on IOS 6!
thanks for the info

Yes it's true. Unless ya can git ya phone unlocked with ya IMEI number. And don't have to worry about baseband again.
