    Default iphone 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?

    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.
