I have an iPhone 4 on ios 5.1.1. It is jailbroken. I have not saved any shh blobs as I was too late. I want to reset all the data on it and keep it jailbroken. Can I do this without losing my firmware? I don't care if I have to rejaibreak it or anything. I just want to have a fresh start without losing the 5.1.1. Thanks for any help

Am I able to do this though noting that I have no blobs or ssh data saved?

did you load redsn0w with the device connected and use " extras > shsh blobs > query " that will show you what shsh blobs cydia has for your device.

p.s.. (please use the "add new comment" button unless you are actually answering the original question)

Thanks, yeh I have tried to fetch any blobs but only 6.0 are there, maybe there is a way to un-jailbreak and then I can reset data, and the jailbreak again? Thanks again

If you're still on 5.1.1 use the Fetch feature. Redsn0w- Extras- SHSH Blobs- Fetch

Only a restore can remove a jailbreak. Without 5.1.1 shsh saved, you cannot restore to 5.1.1. Just restore to 6.1 and you can jailbreak once evasi0n JB is out.
