    You can only downgrade to those versions you see listed on the top of Cydias page.
    You cannot downgrade to any firmware version that you have no shsh blobs.

    But ... why are you associating the Battery issues with the firmware version?!?

    I would say that, if you have a 3GS, probably you have a battery with 1 or 2 years, minimum.

    And according to your description, it seems to me that the problem is totally related with the battery and NOT the firmware version...

    Men, no stress! ;)

    It's just the battery for sure!!! It's VERY EASY to swap to another one!


    Cheers,

    No nothing.
    It cannot be done at all with no shsh blobs for 5.1.1 period.

    Yup, that's right...

    If you have SHSH blobs for 5.1.1. It is ok.

    If you have NOT SHSH blobs for 5.1.1, it is NOT ok.

    Man I was too facing this problem when my iPhone 3Gs came on ios 5.1.1. Its the firmware problem not the mobile's... When i downgraded it to 4.1 the problem did not occur again... I suggest you to first save and verify and sumbit your all shsh blobs via tinyumbrella & redsnow then downgrade it to 4.3.5 if u have the shsh or the firmwares above 4.3... Bcuz majority apps demand 4.3 or above to download and install...
    Later if 6.1 releses then you can upgrade to 6.1.
    But take care of your shsh... Cuz i had the 5.1.1 shsh but i did not save or verify or sumbit it to cydia and now it lost :(

    It's not iOS problem, you should replace your iPhone battery.

    U should try a downgrading to 4.3 or above but first save and verify all your shsh... Then if the problem occur again then there would probably be a fault in your battery.

    Must say today i only lost 2 percentage on 4 hours because the edge was of , you know data or what its are calling . Yes ios 6 is verry nice and fast but the many people's are saying that the battery life is not so good with ios 6.

    You should definitely check the battery. When my phone had battery life issues, it took me two weeks to finally disassemble the unit and the battery ballooned up to twice its size. Pretty scary stuff. A good indicator was when the plastic case I had on the phone suddenly didn't fit anymore.
