Hello Jailbreakqa to put it simply I want to restore my jailbroken iPhone 4, which is running 5.1.1 on an AT&T network, to an original 5.1.1 so I can redo the jailbreaking process. I want to know if this is possible and what I must do in order to do it. Thanks in advance to everyone, great community!

You need 5.1.1 ipsw file, iTunes. Plug in your device when iTunes detect you device hold down shift and click restore. You have to wait until iTunes finished the rest stage. To jailbroken you device on 5.1.1 untethered you need absinthe 2.0 or Redsnow. For redsnow you no need to go into DFU Mode

That alone will not work. First, they need the 5.1.1 shsh blob and second, You need to use a custom firmware when restoring.

how can i confirm whether or not i have the 5.1.1 shsh blob and is there a link where i can download custom firmware?

you use tiny umbrella or redsn0w to check for blobs. you use redsn0w, snowbreeze, or pwnage tools to make a custom firmware. if you have shsh you should follow @markhack's instructions
