Help please
i have an iphone 4s (UK, locked to three network) with ios 5.1
itunes 10.6 running on windows 7 x32.

i'm planning to update to 5.1.1 (or if possible downgrade to 5.0.1) so that i can jailbreak.
however when i try to update using the downloaded iphone 4,1 5.1.1 restore.ipsw file using itunes, the process fails and advices me to update to ios6. i also tried using redsn0w, sn0wbreeze and tiny umbrella or even the editing hosts file. but all were of no use.

i have downloaded both files and tried updating using above methods
iPhone3,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw and
iPhone4,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw

I don`t want to update to ios 6 as of now.

do some reading on the forum on similar postings, you can only update to iOS 6 with your 4S and no blobs
