    i have JB iphone 4 iOS 5.0.1 bb 1.59.00 unlocked via ultrasn0w

    today i got ma phone bricked while installing Siri Original from russian repo, now m going to restore it with custom ipsw c'z if i didn't stitch my blob file , i will .definitely loose my baseband 1.59.00 and so my unlock (unltrasn0w)

    i want to install iOS 5.1.1, but as i try to stitch my blob file with original 5.1.1 firmware, it says " the blob doesn't appear to match with this IPSW build "

    is there a way to install 5.1.1 on my phone ?

    I believe he/she is saying:

    I need Help, I currently own a Jailbroken iPhone 4 running 5.0.1 with a baseband of 1.59.00, it is currently unlocked using Ultrasn0w.

    Today I got my phone bricked attempting to install "Siri Original" from a Russian Repo, now I'm going to have to restore it using a custom IPSW because if I don't stitch my blob file I will lose my baseband 1.59.00, which in turns means I won't have a unlocked phone.

    I want to install iOS 5.1.1 but as I try to stitch my blob file with original 5.1.1 firmware I get alerted with an error which says, "The blob doesn't appear to match this this IPSW build".

    Is there any way to install iOS 5.1.1 on my iPhone or will I have to install custom 5.0.1 again?

    You don't need to stitch SHSHs to preserve the baseband, just follow these instructions:

    (The instructions are for 5.1, but it is exactly the same for 5.1.1)

    EDIT: JUst to clarify: You do not NEED your SHSH blobs for this, so the version does not matter. The SHSH blobs are only needed to restore to an OLD version of iOS.

    Blobs are used to restore to a firmware that is no longer signed by Apple. Since 5.1.1 is the latest and current firmware, no blobs are needed.

    Pretty sure I linked him to the exact same thing in his thread yesterday.

    OP - did that not work, or is this thread just now making its way to this section?
