How to fix some mysterious problems.

I've been messing with this iPhone for mons and months now. I have stayed on iOS 5.0.1 because ere was no untethered jailbreak for 5.1 when I had the time and effort to do so. So I waited this long and I ended up getting over involved in iFile and tried fixing my carrier settings but ended up completely removing the carrier bundles option in var/library/mobile.... So after doing this I decided I should start from scratch and restore my phone completely in hopes of the carrier settings etc. going back to their default. I have a data plan on this iPhone, yes it is a prepaid go phone type GSM, but I only had options for VPN... And not APN... And no matter what I did I could not get the damn Internet to work... So anyway... I was wondering if I could just restore my phone, then download the iOS 5.1 IPSW as an upgrade, and then jailbreak it as though my phone was never tweaked or changed at all.... I pretty much want to start anew on ios 5.1 and am stuck/confused about SHSH blobs and if it's too late for me to do this at all :(

Info: About: Network AT&T Version 5.0.1 (9a406) Carrier not available Model mc923ll Modem firmware 1.0.14 <---that worrys me btw...

Any help would be much obliged. Please help me :(

Check whether the folder is in the iFIle trash first - go to /var/mobile/Library/iFile/Trash/var/mobile/Library and if you see Carrier Bundles there, cut and paste it back to /var/mobile/Library. (Use the clipboard button in the bottom right after tapping "Edit" and selecting the folder)

If it isn't there, check at the top of the home page in Cydia; if it says you have 5.0, 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 SHSHes (5.1 is not jailbreakable), you can try these directions to restore to one of those firmwares.

Nope it's not there... I feel like i changed something somewhere and now I cant find what i changed or what i changed it to. :( i also feel like there's a lot of shit missing or out of place when i glance through certain plists and such... Which sketches me out too :( I meant ios 5.1.1 the extra .1 just never seems to come off my fingers when im typing lol, i have 5.0.1 up to 6.0.2 shsh blob things at the top of my cydia... The gui de has been helpful yes & ithink I know what to do butlet me run it by you really quick...

Install redsn0w... Version 0.9.15b1 ? Navigate to extras--ipsw--select firmware... The firmware i select, should it be the firmware im wanting? Or the firmware originally on my iphone? After i install i connect my phone, and select SHSH blobs... Put phone into recovery mode & then restore through itunes??

After all that will everything be like a brand new jailbreak ? Unmodified & waiting to get sourced & tweaked etc?

Im just more or less afraid of messing up my phone any more. I Think i saw in ifile a bunch of different files with cdma in the titles... And i have at&t gsm... Ahhhhh!!!
