Can I update to iOS 5.1.1 even though iOS 6 is out?

Can I update to iOS 5.1.1 even though iOS 6 is out?

Posted November 2, 2012 at 6:33pm by mohdsamim · 5357 views
I have an iPhone 4 (GSM) running on iOS 4.2.1 and its locked, It was still wrapped up in its box and I started using it. I jailbroke it on 4.2.1 using redsn0w. Basically what I want to do is update to iOS 5.1.1 (and also preserve baseband) even though iOS 6 is out (I'd prefer an untethered jailbreak rather than tethered on iOS 6), And yes, I do have my SHSH blobs saved for iOS 4.2.1, 5.1.1, 6.0 and 6.0.1. So, Any idea's or guides please? Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I´ll have an ip 4 (GSM) running on iOS 4.3.3 (04.10.01) and it´s locked, but Im using a geveysim. My device is NOT jailbroken.

Like you, I want to update to 5.1.1.
The reason why is that the geveysim dosen´t support iOS 6.
The last update the gevey support is 5.1.1.

I know I´ll have to preserve my baseband, and I´ll will do this with snowbreeze.

My big question is:

How did you saved your SHSH-blobs for 4.2.1, 5.1.1, 6.0 and 6.0.1.when you´re running on iOS 4.2.1?

Did you update your iOS 4.2.1, 5.1.1, 6.0 and 6.0.1, saved your blobs and then rolled back to 4.2.1?

OR is there an other way to solve my problem? :)

I need blobs for 5.1.1 but this seems to be impossible because Im on iOS 4.3.3 and it seems that apple dosent "signing" older iOS versions then iOS 6 :(
When I try to update in Itunes I´ll get the 3194 error, and I have tried with everything that you can google about this error.

Is there any way for me to upgrade my phone?

But of course you can. E.g. use TinyUmbrella's server for validating your update to iTunes.
Good luck.
