    You can't.Only if you have SHSH file for 5.1.1 can update and jailbreak.

    yes it should work, but just to be sure, you have your blobs/SHSH/hashes saved for 5.1.1 and 4.3.3.

    SHSH is not the same as the IPSW firmware file

    I'm sorry I'm just a casual user I don't really understand what blobs are, all I have is red snow and the two IPSW files for 4.3.3 and 5.1.1. Will I be able to do it if I follow the link?

    Download TinyUmbrella, hook up your phone, go to AdvancedTab, check get SHSH from Cydia, back to front page click save.

    Hopefully you have some hashes saved.
