How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an Iphone 4, at first it was running at 4.3.1 IOS and i jailbroke it using redsn0w 9.14b2. I then took it to a store to get in unlock because i do not know much about unlocking. When they unlocked the phone they also seemed to have upgraded it to IOS 6.0.1. This is currently an iphone 4(10A523), model(MC319LL) running on IOS 6.0.1. My questions is, is it possible to downgrade this being that theres a possibility that my SHSH BLOB was saved when i jailbroke on the 4.3.1 version, and also if i run Redsn0w 9.15b3 on it using 6.0 in "Select IPSW" will the jailbreak become successfull? Ultimately i just want my iphone to be unlocked and jailbroken, please help. Would be willing to rep, support, thumbs up or anything for help.

You can jailbreak, tethered, on iOS 6, or you can downgrade to 5.x using redsn0w, not iTunes for an untethered jailbreak. If your baseband is 1.59 (Settings/general/about/modem firmware), you can unlock with ultrasn0w. If your baseband is other than 1.59, there is no software unlock possible and you will need an IMEI unlock (or a Gevey if baseband is no later than 4.10).

EDIT: If your baseband is 1.59, make sure you preserve it if you restore. Do this by restoring ONLY with redsn0w (not iTunes) and selecting YES when redsn0w asks if you want to preserve the baseband. 1.59 is very rare.

Rep, support, thumbs up? Brah! We prefer doubloons as compensation around here.

Golden doubloons for you lol, None of this jailbreaking will interfere with the unlock correct?

It depends on the unlock. An IMEI or official (from the carrier) unlock is permanent, the others can be messed up by a baseband update. A jailbreak alone won't remove an unlock. Which type do you have?

Modem Firmware is 4.12.02 so it wouldnt work .. but,

I dont even care to downgrade it anymore since IOS 6.0.1 has such a better GUI than the 4.3.1 IMO. The only thing im concerned about is the jailbreak, and as long as i can install Redsn0w on this phone im more than happy and more than happy
