    I'm currently running on ios 5.1.1 (jailbroken) and I want to update to 6.1.2. I've heard Cydia saves your SHSH blobs when you jailbreak, even for versions you don't have.

    At the top of Cydia on my iPod it says 'SHSH: 4.3.3, 4.3.5, 5.1.1, 6.1, 6.1.2.'

    I'm wondering if it's possible to update to 6.1.2 through using blobs from here?

    What device do you have? If you have an iPod touch 5th gen, iPhone 4S or 5, you cannot update to 6.1.2

    Blobs do really do anything for a5+ devices right now.

    You should be able to update to iOS 6.1.2. I'm not too familiar with the whole updating to an unsigned firmware for A4 devices. You could try some googling for the steps

    Get tiny umbrella and save the blobs and start a server in the program.

    But it is possible to use blobs from Cydia, even if I've never actually had that firmware (6.1.2) ?

    Wait! Before you update to 6.1.2:

    Download the latest version of iFaith (v1.5.6) and run it. Plug in your iPhone 4 and click "show available shsh caches on server". After it finds it, save them.

    See if it marks them as valid or not. If its not valid, don't upgrade using the shsh blobs or else it'll put your device into a DFU loop (or so I heard)
