How to fix some mysterious problems.

I jailbroke my phone(iphone4) through last summer and haven't upgraded since, but it seems like it's time for me to upgrade because I can't download some apps due to my old iOS..

but I heard that iOS6 has a lot of problems especially with the iphone4, so I just want to upgrade to iOS5 and have been searching on how to but didn't find any luck with it :(

as far as I know, I feel like I need to upgrade and jailbreak it again, and I want to do it through cause that's how I've done it last year but I'm just afraid that it won't jailbreak the newer iOS :/

it says iOS 4.2.10,4.2.9,5.0.1,5.1.1,6.0.1 - would i able to upgrade to iOS5 instead of 6?

My search is coming to conclusion that I may have to use redsn0w instead of for this and i'm just little afraid i'd do something wrong cause redsn0w isn't the one i used to jailbreak before..
