You can update it, but its a tethered jailbreak on 6.0.1. First thing you do is use redsn0w to downgrade the baseband. Then after its on 5.13 baseband, plug it in, open redsn0w>extras>even more>restore and point it to the 6.0.1 ipsw. It will ask if you want to preserve the baseband, say YES. Pop in an att sim to activate, then use redsn0w to jailbreak it.

Again, 6.0.1 is tethered

Oh cool you have old bootroom. I suggest getting 6.0.1 as this is untethered for you. You could get 5.1.1 or whatever but best to get 6.0.1.

(05 Dec '12, 15:56) khan_sameer khan_sameer's gravatar image

You will need both. 6.0.1 to update but 6.0 to jailbreak.
