    I'm trying to sell my 4S (5.1.1), but I'd like to wipe it clean of all personal information that can be used against me... WITHOUT upgrading to iOS6. I understand I can't go back to factory 5.1.1 because the new redsn0w is not out.

    Are there any outstanding files I should delete? I have purcahsed maybe 2 things on Cydia.

    Should I just wait for redsnow before I sell?

    Uninstalling the cydia apps you purchased won't be the problem, just delete all txt's, email , icloud, itunes or other accounts or any other app that has personal info.

    Waiting for the new redsn0w will get you a clean phone, but you can sell now as well.

    Ok but just to clarify, even if I saved my blobs (before ios 6 was released), there's no way as of today of going back to fresh 5.1.1?

    Why not list it and see what the buyer wants many don't want there device JB I always offer mine for sale jb and not. if the buyer wants to go to 6.0 you are wasting your time.

    Wrong and been discussed many times.

    WITHOUT blobs no restore, with blobs and the new redsn0w you can restore.

    http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/31869383801/blob-o-riffic

    "A few months back we released a redsn0w feature that lets you downgrade A5+ devices from 5.1.1 to anything lower (if you had saved blobs). *Unfortunately once the 5.1.1 window closes, redsn0w’s 5.x downgrade feature will no longer work."

    "So if you’re at 5.1.1 when the window closes (and you’ve saved your blobs), you’ll always be able to RE-restore to 5.1.1 again."

    "All of these features will be released shortly in a new version of redsn0w. *In the meantime please be sure you have your 5.1.1 blobs and stay at 5.1.1. *Happy iOS6 day!"

    Thanks, I thought the old redsn0w supported that feature. I guess there won't be any shsh extraction.
