I'm stuck at the same point, from this question:

"How to upgrde iPhone 4S from 5.1 t 5.1.1" from @aurawater

I buy an iDevice iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1(9B179) and Baseband 2.0.10, after Apple release the iOS 6.0.1. it's there a chance to upgrade? (not to the up to date firmware)

PD. Does any one else got an opinion of stay in 5.1 of upgrade to 6.0.1?

If you have 5.1.1 SHSH's, you may be able to. If not, you can't. Please check via tinyumbrella.

it doesnt matter if Apple stop sign the iOS 5.1.1?

right, as long as you're still on iOS 5.

DO NOT go to iOS 6, no matter what. That will ruin any chances of downgrading/restoring 5.x in the future

by the way, tried the tinyumbrella, and got nothing... :(

are the SHSH unique, can MOD any other from a similar device?

(08 Jan '13, 19:01) RetlawEHC RetlawEHC's gravatar image

No. 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 only. SHSH are more unique than DNA (twins share DNA, but no 2 devices have the same SHSH).

ok, soo I'm stuck theres nothing to do... just wait for a Tethered o Untethered on iOS 6?

(08 Jan '13, 19:07) RetlawEHC RetlawEHC's gravatar image

Right. It won't be tethered though, not on an A5 device, you can't have a tethered jailbreak without a bootrom exploit.
