    Hi guys! I hope you can help me out.

    I have an IP4s (32GB) running iOS5.1.1. I haven't jailbroke it since I got it last April 2012. I finding it dull now and decided to jailbreak it after this.

    Currently my iDevice has 16GB of used data and 12GB free. I have read around the web that that the more data you have on your iDevice the longer JB process would take. I was planning to do a back up via iTunes first. Erase all content via my Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content and Settings thru my iPhone. Jailbreak via Absinthe. Then once Jailbroken restore via my iTunes Back up. My problem is that from where I am right now I don't have a stable and it's a very slow internet connection and I don't want iTunes to connect to its server to verify since I'm still on iOS5.1.1 and I don't want to update to iOS6. So can I do a restore from a local back up with out internet connection? Is this possible?

    Hope you can help me out... I'm completely naive about jailbreaking. Thanks! KCCO!

    I'm sorry but I don't think it's possible because Apple needs to verify the software.
