    You cannot upgrade to 5.1.1 since it is no longer signed. If you upgrade you will have to go 6.0.1 which does not have a JailBreak as of yet.

    @ThaKrazyOne: What if I upgrade to 6.0.1 by connecting to itunes which will eventually delete my current jailbreak and again downgrade to 5.1.1 and jailbreak again? Will it work?

    When you open Cydia what blobs does it say that you have? It'll be across the top in light blue print.

    SHUT UP!!!!

    you are definitely wrong about no jailbreak for 6.0.1 and probably wrong about not being able to go to 5.1.1 because he is already jailbroken.
    so you basically just lied to this kid, what if he took your word as absolute truth and just left and stopped investigating his question?

You must also have a local copy of the right 5.1.1 ipsw on your machine and let redsn0w know where it is when prompted. Run it. And be happy.

    They're only mine today, maybe that's why. I'll stop being off topic now.

    @3cit: What I have understood after reading many articles on the web is, I've to upgrade to 6.0.1 by connecting to itunes which will eventually delete my current jailbreak and again downgrade to 5.1.1 and jailbreak again. Is there any other easier method than that? Currently I'm using ios 4.3.2.

    I'm sure 3cit can correct me if I'm wrong lol but I think you can make a custom ipsw of 5.1.1 and stitch in the blobs with red snow assuming u have them in Cydia currently then do a shift restore in iTunes and select your custom ipsw

    Since it apparently got missed, here is how to go directly from 4.x.x to 5.1.1 assuming you have the correct SHSH on Cydia.

    You need to preserve your baseband when you update. More importantly, do you have shsh saved for 5.1.1?
