    You can upgrade upto 4.3.3. Restore with a custom firmware (one that keeps your current baseband) with hackivate enable. After, install Ultrasnow through Cydia to unlock.

    Create a custom firmware yourself using Pwnagetool(Mac) or Snowbreeze (windows). Or, you can google and download one from a trusted site.

    Once you have the custom file, use Pwnagetool(Mac) or Rednsow (windows) to put the phone into a special DFU mode, and then, restore with the custom firmware file through iTunes.

    First, do you have 3G or 3GS? What firmware version are you trying to restore with? Did you create your own or download one from somewhere? Did you ever edit your host manually to Cydia or use Tinyumbrella?

    5.12 is the baseband. What iOS firmware are you trying to update to? 4.3.3? Check you host file and make sure it's pointing to Apple instead of Cydia.

    Are you stuck at emergency screen? If yes, did you have hackivate enable when creating the custom firmware file? If pass the emergency screen, you need to install Ultrasnow to unlock the phone and allow you to use different carrier sim cards.

    Then, you didn't enable the hackivate = activate phone option.

    Create a custom 4.3.3 firmware (with options to keep the current baseband and activate if you don't have the official carrier sim) yourself using Pwnagetool(Mac) or Snowbreeze (windows). Or, you can google and download one from a trusted site.

    Once you have the custom file, use Pwnagetool(Mac) or Rednsow (windows) to put the phone into a special DFU mode, and then, restore with the custom firmware file through iTunes. Afterward, on the phone, install Ultrasnow if you need the phone unlock to use on non official carrier.

    I didn't see you mention it but what phone do you have? if you have a 3G then 4.3.3 is out for you. The highest I think you can go to is 4.2.1, personally I wouldn't go past 3.1.3 on a 3G but some people like it. In order to use it unlocked you need to use Pwnage Tool(Mac) or Sn0wbreeze(Windows) those are the only two ways you can upgrade. I wont go through the porcess because it has already been laid out for you. So if you use Windows then search on here for Sn0wbreeze and look for my name I've given out the link too many times to count. If you use a Mac then head to iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials and look in Tutorials, iPhone first go to Jailbreak and look for the Pwnage Tool for the version of firmware you want to do. Once you're done and the phone is Jailbroken go back and this time instead of Jailbreak choose Unlock and follow the steps in the tutorial.
