    Create a custom 5.1.1 no_BB ipsw with redsnow and restore to that.

    I dont get what you're saying.
    Activate automatic updates for what? Itunes or iphone firmware?
    In order to update to custom ipsw you hold either the shift or option button and click restore in itues.
    You dont restore to the stock firmware with itunes.
    You gotta a lot more learning and research to do before you attempt anything though.
    Good luck.

    Don't use wifi, connect phone to USB, itunes should recognise it and say it found a iohone in recovery mode, than use ALT-restore (mac) or SHIFT-restore(win) to restore your NO_BB ipsw to your iphone in DFU-mode

    If its not finding your iphone use another computer or reinstall/update your itunes. And you can turn on automatic update for itunes if you want.
    That only updates your computer to the latest itunes version when its out.
