    I have a 4s with iOS 5.1.1 and jailbroken. I have my blobs saved. If I get it unlocked by AT&T can I restore it to 5.1.1?

    Are you sure that this is correct? I was under the assumption that if you were on 5.1.1 AND had blobs, you could restore to 5.1.1. However, if you are on 6, there is no way to go back.

    I believe you can. Having the blobs makes it possible.

    I'm under the impression that the downgrade is made possible by the limerain exploit, which the 4s is not vulnerable to...

    The OP wasn't asking about a downgrade.

    When he clicks that restore button in iTunes he's going to ios6

    this guy, 3cit, sometimes he wrong... go figure....

    "iPad3, i4S (and iPad2 owners who don’t satisfy #2) will always be able to RE-restore the current 5.x OS that’s already on their device. So if you’re at 5.1.1 when the window closes (and you’ve saved your blobs), you’ll always be able to RE-restore to 5.1.1 again. This makes the 5.1.1 jailbreak a lot less fragile — you don’t have to worry about messing up your install with funky extensions or getting into a boot loop, because you can always RE-restore from 5.1.1 to 5.1.1 again (or from 5.0.1 to 5.0.1 again, etc). But once you fall off the 5.x train by restoring to 6.x, you’ll be stuck there until the next jailbreak."

    info i got from the interwebs

    Correct, allowing you have to select the 5.1.1 custom ispw blob stitched firmware you you want. That you made with redsn0w. You can only restore. Not downgrade.

    It's my understanding you can "re-Restore" but there are very specific requirements for A5 devices. You should have a look here.

    yeah so apparently you can, so do all the stuff, save your blobs, download a fresh 5.1.1 so you can use redsnow to stitch blobs in and create a custom firmware, then do the shift restore and enjoy your unlock...

    sorry for my misinfo before!

    Yeah but doing that with an A5 device will only come back with an error, I have tried numerous times and have not been able to get my 4s to downgrade back to 5.1.1

    That's a no-no. You can't use someone else's blobs.

    I would delete your email address from the post if I were you. You will be getting a lot of spam emails IMHO.

    Redsnow has a new official release today...
    It supports full "re-restoring" of all devices CURRENTLY RUNNING IOS5 so long as your shsh blobs are saved....
    Also it installs a TETHERED JAILBREAK and an official Cydia for ios6 on all A4 devices.

    So that's good news if you happen to really mess up your newer device and need to restore it.
    Or if you want an unlock

    Not to take the thread too off topic, but are you aware of a tool that can fetch the 5.1.1 blobs from a jailbroken device ( in a similar way as iFaith did for 5.0/5.0.1)?

    I could be wrong but does tiny umbrella do this ?

    It fetches the blobs either from Cydia or Apple servers. iFaith, on the other hand, extracted the blobs from the device itself so you could get them even if they are no longer signed.

    i was under the impression that ifaith still worked... i have a a4 device though...
    i dont know of any other way except cydia or tiny umbrella or ifaith
    also why do people not have their blobs saved immediately, am i just lucky with cydia?
    i have blobs for firmware i was never even on!

    iFaith works up to iOS 5.0.1 (or at least that's what it says on the site). It would be awesome if it worked on later firmwares... I might give it a shot in a few days, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I'd say there's some luck involved here. I've had my new iPad for a month now and Cydia still shows that my device "is in the pending TSS queue"

    i wonder if its becuase of the amounts of hits cydia gets from my phone, i check at least daily and sometimes more! i actually firced myself one time to go a whole week without looking at cydia, i made if 45 minutes....
    no i made it 6.5 days but it was HARD and since then ive been there once a day at least!
