    Hey guys, I know iOS 7 jailbreak is out and all but I don't like iOS 7 so I don't want to run it. I am currently running jailbroken 5.1.1 on my iPhone 4 and I hate it. It has by far the worst jailbreak and it is constantly crashing, slow boot time, etc.

    Told this is all expected because of how the 5.1.1 jailbreak works but if I knew that, I would have stayed on 5.0.1....Anyway, now I want to update to iOS 6.x, so is there anyway to do it? Maybe even go to iOS 7 then downgrade? If I try to auto update on my iPhone or within iTunes, it wants to go to 7 directly...

    Can I use any iOS 6.x standalone ISPW file?

    If you've never installed iOS 6.x.x on your phone, you don't have SHSH blobs, which would be required since Apple isn't signing anything besides iOS 7.0.4 right now.

    Yes I forgot...Because of that Cydia issue with 6.x blobs/SHSH, I don't have any...

    They aren't even signing 6.1.5?

    They haven't been signing 6.1.5 in a long while.

    You are screwed, unfortunately.

    Welcome to the world of milky white garbage.

    Ha Ha. Well said. iOS 7 all white is indeed garbage color scheme. I too came from iOS 5.1.1 but for me jailbreak on that was very good.

    Check using iFaith. Cydia might have saved 6.1.3 blobs for you (if you opened cydia in the time frame they were caching them)
