    hey, first of all is your OS 32bit or 64bit because there are problems with 64bit.
    what i would suggest is a fresh (DFU mode) restore to 4.1 which will update the baseband to 05.14 i believe but if you don't need an unlock thats fine.
    you can make a backup, but restoring data from a previous JB can cause problems. but make one incase you want to go back to 3.1.3 (if you have your SHSH files stored that is)
    once all prepared, put your device into DFU mode (google if you don't know how) and select to restore and it will tell you there is an update, choose to restore and update.
    after itunes has done its thing, set up as a new iphone (restore from backup if you want but it can cause problems) and once you have synced you data on (you can continue without syncing data first) your choice.
    i suggest using greenpois0n from greenpois0n - Mmmm...pois0n it is the same as limera1n, but with fewer issues in my experience.
    when your device is plugged in, turn off completely and open greenpois0n/limera1n.exe and follow the onscreen instructions to get your device into DFU mode, then greenpois0n will let you press the jailbreak button, limera1n does it automatically.
    with greenpois0n you will see verbose boot and limera1n you will see the droplet onscreen.
    once rebooted press on the loader (greenpois0n) or limera1n (obvs limera1n) and install cydia.
    then after that you should be all done enjoy
    and sorry for the long guide lol
