    I have a jailbroken iphone 4 that i want to update from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1. I have never updated past the 5.0.1 that i have now so i don't understand how to get the shsh so that i don't update to the newest version of ios. I understand the process (as i did look around before asking!) but i don't see any comments on my particular issue. I get the back up itunes and backup cydia, but how to find the shsh and the actual 5.1.1 file are where i'm stuck.

    Thank you for your help!

    if cydia doesn't already have your 5.1.1 shsh blobs, you're stuck and can't update to that version

    before you do anything else, i would recommend using ifaith to dump your 5.0.1 blobs so you can always restore back to 5.0.1 should anything go wrong

    open cydia and press TSS center, what iOS SHSH blobs does it say at the top?

    That's the strange thing. When I open Cydia, There is no shsh notification at the top and there is no TSS center.

    Thanks for your help on this.

    TSS Center isn't at the top of cydia. Are you sure you don't see it?

    Are you on main Cydia page ?
    Hint = touch "Cydia tab" (leftmost tab of the 5 at the bottom of the Cydia app)

    Looks like 5.0.1 is your only option. :(

    Why wouldn't it be working right?

    one way to use an external tool such as iFaith or tinyumbrella to see if cydia has any 5.1.1 blobs for your device

    if you really don't know, you can PM me your ECID and i'll help you check
