    i have an iphone 4s (UK, locked to three network) with ios 5.1
    itunes 10.6 running on windows 7 x32.

    i'm planning to update to 5.1.1 so that i can jailbreak.
    however when i try to update using the downloaded iphone 4,1 5.1.1 restore.ipsw file using itunes, the process fails and advices me to update to ios6. i also tried using redsn0w, sn0wbreeze and tiny umbrella or even the editing hosts file. but all were of no use.

    i have downloaded both files for restoring using above methods.
    iPhone3,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw and
    iPhone4,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw

    I don`t want to update to ios 6 as of now.

    can anyone guide me how i can update my ios5.1 to 5.1.1

    5.1.1 is not signed any more.

    Apple will always push new update.

    If you keep version 5.1.1, and ever need to call AppleCare Technical Support for any "issue/s" troubleshooting, you "will" be required to upgrade to iOS 6. If you refuse to upgrade, you then are refusing for Technical Support assistance.



    If you wish to use iTunes/iCloud for your back ups you will need to upgrade to iOS 6 to prevent any "possible" errors.



    Looking further, this should help a bit.

    One last thought. The latest iTunes version which you should download is 10.7 which will support ALL IOS versions including IOS6.

    You can't upgrade to 5.1.1 because apple is no longer signing that firmware .ipsw. Your only option is iOS 6.

    If you infact have the SHSH blob for 5.1.1 you can restore to 5.1.1 regardless if Apple doesn't want you to by using TinyUmbrella. You should be able to restore via iTunes using TinyUmbrella to redirect the server check to sauriks server and after that jailbreak using Absinthe.

    If iTunes says that you need to update to 6.0 then you haven activated TinyUmbrella to take over the server check. Have you saved the SHSH blob in TinyUmbrella and then started the TSS server? Remember that you need to have iTunes closed until you activate the TSS server in TinyUmbrella.

    not trying to be a **** but all of the jailbreak sites warned people about this exact situation around the release of 5.1.1

    You can't use an ipsw file for an iPhone 4 on an iPhone 4S. That's another issue. But as everyone has already stated, you're stuck.
