Is there any existing or future redsn0w or sn0wbreeze versions that can create custom ipsw for iOS 6.1? It would be pointless for me to upgrade to 6.1 without preserving my baseband since i rely on SAM and/or Gevey unlock. Thanks for any tips/comments.

You can use redns0w/extras/even more/restore to prevent baseband update on iP4 and 3Gs. None for other devices.

I tried to restore to 6.1 via redsn0w too. First there was something about missing plist..then i got stuck at fix recovery part and went back to 5.1.1

same thing here. guess we'll just have to wait for the next redsn0w or sn0wbreeze release.

i tried the latest redsn0w to preserve my baseband. it worked well, until the recovery fix part. you cant create a custom 6.1 no-bb ipsw either. went back to 5.11 :(

Use ifaith 1.5.1 from ( to create a stitched ipsw using 6.1 shsh blobs. Then restore using the file in itunes.

So instead of building the custom firmware with redsnow, use ifaith instead? Everything else remains the same...jailbreak, unlock with ultrasnow? What do you mean by "restore using the file in itunes"? thanks!

The latest version of snowbreeze 2.9.8 supports IOS 6.1. Use it to create a custom 6.1 firmware. Choose 'baseband preservation' option in snowbreeze. The custom firmware will be created on your desktop. Use itunes shift+restore and select this firmware to update to 6.1. Then jaibreak using evasion 1.1
