I already have latest redsn0w 0.9.15b3.....i don't want to take any risk of an unsuccessful jailbreak and forced to update to iOS 6, so want to make i need to select ipsw 5.1.1 manually or just click on jailbreak. One thing is bothering me, at bottom of redsn0w window it says iPad 5.1.1(not iPad3 5.1.1) why its not recognized? I also downloaded Latest Absinthe 2.0.4 but it doesn't open at all, i am using macbook pro OS X 10.8.2.

@vid4click you do not need to select an ipsw. Just click jailbreak in redsn0w. Absinthe is not working because you have to run it from terminal on Mountain Lion. Just use redsn0w and click jailbreak, it won't force you to iOS 6.
