If you downloaded your shsh from cydia than they are broke,they don't have tss server data, that's why you get soft dfu, cause you have I tethered downgrade which means everytime you reboot, you will have to "boot tethered" with redsn0w. You can check your shsh files with ifaith if they are good.

Yes, and ifaith downloaded them from cydia servers. Try to make an ipsw with ifaith and when you select the shsh file, if they are broke, it should shoe a message like " the appticket expired" " or "... is not available" , something like that.

The blobs must be valid. Assuming they were valid, you need to put the device into pwned dfu mode before you can shift + click restore a custom firmware

You have to use the latest version of ifaith to verify it. Redsn0w hasn't been updated to properly check if the SHSH is complete or not

Cydia --> TSS center is the other alternative to check if the SHSH is complete or not (you must already be jailbroken to use this method)

Thanks for your response.

I have checked in cydia, I can see blobs for 5.1, 5.1.1 and after that only for 6.1.3

from 6.0 to 6.1.2 blobs are not there in cydia.

is there any way I can get it, if so then how?

There isn't any way to get blobs that isn't being signed. The exception is for A4 devices (3GS/4) but you need to be on that current firmware

Looks like your options are either untethered jailbreak on 5.1.1 or tethered jailbreak on 6.1.3

Edit: really unsure whether this method works or not but you can give it a try if you would like: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1568340

but I am facing an issue in this also, when I connect to my mobile internet my phone gets reboot by itself.

Do you have any idea about it.
