    Hi,

    my iPhone4 is currently jailbroken on ios5. Is it possible to upgrade it to ios6 and then jailbreak it? How would one go about this?

    Many thanks!

    Did you save any iOS6 SHSH ?

    Apple no longer signs any iOS6 firmware for iPhone 4 so saved, complete SHSH are required.

    You can't. Seems like theres no way to do what you're looking out to do.

    You can save blobs for versions you're not on, but only when Apple is signing them. At the moment, iOS 6 isn't being signed and most likely won't ever be again. iOS 7.0.4 is being signed

    Check using cydia or iFaith to see if cydia has any complete blobs for you

    Just by saying that you obviously don't understand how shsh blobs work and how are saved.

    Blobs are saved for the version Apple are signing, not for the version you are on.

    I checked with both Cydia and iFaith and the only available blobs for me are those below ios6.0. There's a "Where's my ios 6.0" link in Cydia TSS center that leads to a lenghty writeup by Saurik on why the ios6 blobs were not saved but I'd be lying if I said I wanted to read through all of that to understand why. :)

    So I guess I will just stay jailbroken on ios5, no big deal.

    This is precisely the reason you got left behind by technology. :rolleyes:

    Would it tell me how to retrieve my ios6 blobs? I don't think it would, so no point for me to dig into this.

    But if you promise reading this article will bring me up to speed with "technology" then I may reserve one long winter evening to reading it, alright. :p

    It might prevent you of making a similar mistake such as not upgrading to 7.04 or at least saving 7.04 blobs so at least you have a choice next time....

    Not sure what you're implying but I'd never want to have ios7 on my device.
