I want an iPhone 4S running iOS 5.1.1 and be able to reinstall it in the future to iOS 5.1.1 (using for example sn0wbreeze).

I want to buy a new iphone 4S that is running iOS 5.1.1 and jailbreak it and be able to reinstall it to 5.1.1 in the future using for example sn0wbreeze.

Can I save SSHS Blobs if it's in the factory orignal state running iOS 5.1.1 ? And always be able to reinstall and jailbreak 5.1.1 ?

No and no to your last questions. There is no bootrom exploit on the 4S so you wont always be able to reinstall 5.1.1. Most times yes (not with sn0wbreeze tho), but sometimes no.

When you say "Most times yes (not with sn0wbreeze tho), but sometimes no." what are the factors. I haven't bought the phone yet, and I want to get one that this will work on.

<having upgraded from my 3gs to a 5, hated it, swapped it for a 4s running 6.01 , then finding out I can't downgrade it to 5.1.1)

You need 5.1.1 shsh blobs to rerestore to 5.1.1 in redsn0w 9.15b3/extras/even more/restore. No you cannot save 5.1.1 shsh ow unless you opened cydia or saved using tinyumbrella when 5.1.1 was still being signed by apple. You can check if you have 5.1.1 shsh saved in cydia home page top part in green. You can also use redsn0w 9.15b3/extras/Shsh blobs/query.

ok, so even if the phone is on 5.1.1 now you cannot get the shsh blobs out of the phone in January 2013? Is there anyway to reinstall an iPhone 4S on 5.1.1 to 5.1.1 ?

Only if the phone's previous owner had saved the SHSH blobs and given them to you, or if they had jailbroken it and Cydia had saved the blobs.

Would this be 100% doable if I got an iPhone 4 instead of a 4S ?

And this would of have to of been done September 2012 or prior?

i.e. you can't jailbreak the phone now and get SHSH blobs of it in January2013
