    I have an iPhone 4 on iOS 4.1 I never upgraded cause i wanted to get it unlocked and was told by someone it be better not to upgrade. Anyway now a few apps require me to have 4.3 or higher. I want to upgrade to 5.1.1 I know apple has stopped signing it but I saw in other threads that there are ways to downgrade back blobs/shsh/tinyumbrella/redsnow.

    Is it possible to Upgrade to 5.1.1 or you can only get 5.1.1 if you have had it before?

    you can only get it if you have your blobs saved either manually or by cydia.

    if you are jailbroken check top of main page in cydia it should give the SHSH's available for your phone

    if is isn't jailbroken and you did not save the blobs manually there is no way to upgrade to 5.1.1

    you can however upgrade to 6.01 and still preserve your baseband to have it unlocked by ultrasn0w when jailbroken.

    you can also get an IMEI (factory) unlock by buying one online for a few $ depending on the original carrier. In that case you can upgrade to 6.01 without ever having to worry about unlocking.

    You need to have the SHSH saved for 5.1.1 to upgrade.

    Nope. Only option you have is stay where you are or upgrade to 6.0.1
    No shsh blobs, no restore to firmware not signed by Apple any longer.

    You can upgrade to 6.0.1 but it'll be tethered. You can always purchase an imei unlock.
