Get redsn0w, connect phone to USB, run redsn0w, click Extras> SHSH blobs> Query. Your ECID should be filled in, click OK. The listed blobs are the versions you can restore to. See this faq.

If it was never jailbroken before, then there wouldn't be any.

Yep, sorry. You can jailbreak tethered if you want, but you're stuck with 6.0.1.

semi unteathered? and is tethered any harm to the phone?

(05 Jan '13, 00:01) Marten Marten's gravatar image

Yeah it's semi-tethered. There's no harm to the phone, it's just inconvenient having to boot tethered, but if you don't kill the battery or install anything requiring a reboot while away from a computer you should be fine.
