Possible to jailbreak 5.1.1 without shsh blobs?
This is just a quick question I have: If I buy a new iPod Touch 4th generation from the Apple store (hopefully with ios 5.1.1 preinstalled) can I jailbreak it using redsn0w eventhough Apple is not signing/issuing shsh blobs for the 5.1.1 ios firmware anymore?
I realise that I can't get the shsh blobs, but will I be able to jailbreak it using redsn0w?

I then realised that I upgraded my wifes phone to IOS 5.1.1 a few months ago. She has no need for homebrew so I didn't bother jailbreaking it at the time. I have now just jailbroken her device successfully using redsn0w. Eveything went fine
Now I know this is possible (jailbreaking an older iOS for which Apple is no longer issing shsh blobs for), I'm going to get a new iPod today to take advantage of the Black Friday specials. The only requirement is that the iPod 4th 16gb MUST be on 5.1.1 so I am going to ask the Apple staff before buying it to make sure. I hope they aren't preloading them with 6.0.1...
Ideally, I would have liked to get the 5.1.1 shsh blobs in the event one of my clients accidentally upgrades iOS to 6 while it's in their hands but I guess that's a risk I have to take. I wonder why it's not possible to take an image of an iDevice and restore it in the future? Somone should port Clonezilla to iOS

i've just confirmed with an apple rep over the phone that the 4th iPod touch should come with ios5 on it. he wasn't sure of the revision however...
But he did say that if it hasn't got 5.1.1 on it I could return it within 30 days
thumbs up to apple for having great consumer return procedures while other stores are going backwards with theirs (i'm looking at you Myer)...
