I'm trying to get to 5.1 with a BB of 4.10 or otherwise compatible with gevey sim.

If I restore to 4.3.3 (no BB) I get error 1013 and permanently in recovery mode.

If I restore to 5.1 Stiched (no BB) it will boot but can't get past activation. With a valid ATT SIM it just says Searching and iTunes can't read the SIM.

I bet I could update to 5.1.1 and fix the baseband but I would loose the ability of using Gevey Sim.

Any other options?

Unless you have blobs for 5.1 you won't be able to up/down grade. And like Shimmer said snow breeze is the way to go.. All the way to 5.1.1 with the help of Absinthe 2!!

I have all my SHSH blobs stored ffrom 4.1 to 5.1.1. I was able to stitch them into a 5.1 custom IPSW, but it's as if my BB is not working. The ATT sim is not recognized in Itunes and I can't get past the activation setup in 5.1 stitched.

I'm trying 5.1.1 right now

I tried using Snowbreeze with 5.1.1 and I was able to get to the spingboard. Settings says I don't have a BB. The version is empty.

Is it bricked?
