    Is there such a thing? I am trying to preserve original BB but want to upgrade to 5.1.1 before Apple quits signing the upgrade, likely to happen very soon :)

    If you have the original baseband(1.59.00), then you can likely get it unlocked from AT&T at no cost, then update to 5.1.1 through iTunes and jailbreak using RedSn0w.

    Thread starter has 4S, so the phone never had 1.59.xx baseband

    A 4S cannot accept a custom/No_BB IPSW since it is not succeptable to Limera1n exploit.

    Is it because of an unlock? There are plenty of companies unlocking GSM iPhones (sim unlocking) for as little as about $15.

    I had mine done here and it cost me $25 just a couple of weeks ago (for an AT&T 4S). Just a week ago I saw it was at $15.

    Well I just logged in and it's down to $10.50 (for slow service, it took about 22 hours for mine to process).

    The site is a little weird, you have to register, then go to place order and pick from the drop down list. I selected the AT&T iPhone 3Gs/4/4s Slow Service.

    Wow that site is SUPER SKETCHY! You gave them money?!? How did you pay? I am not sure I would ever feel good about giving them a credit card number. PayPal might be a good choice if they accept it.

    yeah the site looks like something to be wary of, I used paypal (mainly because they are good at protecting the buyer). No issues whatsoever and like I said, less than 24 hours on my 4S.

    It was $25 when I did it about 3 weeks ago.

    So I did it, and they did it FAST. They had an "AT&T" special for $10. However, since you have to load at least $15 into your account, it actually cost me $15. May do it again sometime I don't know.

    Don't know how they do it but they did. My Rogers SIM works fine. I can even switch it without reboot and it works. Amazing.... Guess there really is no need for Ultrasn0w anymore.

    With VALID blobs a re-restore to 5.1.1 is possible.

    A restore to 6.1.3 is not possible anymore as Apple no longer signs the 6.1.3 IPSW and SHSH's cannot be used on 6.x IPSW's to restore.

    So either re-restore to 5.1.1 or restore to iOS7

    Verify your blobs with iFaith and use this tutorial to re-restore to 5.1.1:

    The re-restore to 5.1.1 only works if your 4S is currently on iOS 5.1.1

    Edit: I just reread your post. You can't dump SHSH blobs on a 4S. Is it a 4 or 4S?

    You said it was unlocked, put in a SIM connect to itunes and go through the setup on the phone.

    Your 5.1.1 SHSH may not be suitable for a re-restore if your phone was issued with 5.1.1 firmware (factory fresh 5.1.1) or you upgraded to 5.1.1 using OTA instead of an iTunes update/restore.

    If you were able to successfully restore (looks like you were), then just follow TriJet's activation advice.

    Silver Apple and progress bar indicates restore won't complete.
    If the restore won't work, it sounds like your saved SHSH are not valid ...
    see my post above.

    There is absolutely no way to downgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 5 on a 4s regardless of blobs. There is just no way to downgrade. Sorry.

    If you're on 6.1.3 there is no jailbreak either. There might be one in the future but sounds like not until after a jailbreak for iOS 7 comes out first. Could be wrong bit that's what it sounds like from what I'm reading.

    Try hard kicking it out of recovery with TinyUmbrella


    If it said it restored it might be stuck because of the BB mismatch.
    Did the restore complete?

    This is correct ^^

    Somehow I missed the fact you went to iOS6

    You can never come back to iOS5

    It might have not gone to 6.1.3 as the OP posted he got error's upgrading to 6.1.3

    If it did go to 6.1.3 indeed it can't go back and the only option would be iOS 7
