OK HERE GOES, MY IPHONE BROKE AND MY FREIND GAVE ME HIS OLD IPHONE. BOTH MODELS ARE 3GS. MINE WAS LOCKED TO ORANGE NETWORK AND HIS WAS LOCKED TO O2.

I MANAGED TO SAVE A COPY OF THE SMS DATABASE FROM MY IPHONE USING IPHONEBROWSER

I JAILBROKE THE 02 IPHONE USING REDSNOW 0.9.15B3 AND UPGRADED THE BASEBAND, THEN RE JAILBROKE AND DOWNGRADED BASEBAND, THEN JAILBROKE AGAIN BOOTING JUST TETHERED.. ONCE I WAS IN CYDIA I UNTETHERED USING EVASI0N AND INSTALLED ULTRASNOW.. SO NOW THE O2 IPHONE IS NOW UNLOCKED AND IM USING THE ORANGE SIM CARD IN IT WITH NO PROLEMS. EVERYTHING WORKING FINE..

HERES THE PROBLEM, USING IPHONEBROWSER TO COPY THE SAVED SMS DATABASE BACK OVER, IT CAME UP WITH AN ERROR IN THE FILES STATING UNRECOGNISED SQL DATABASE SO I CANT USE THE OLD DATABASE OF TEXTS..

SINCE IVE DONE WHAT IVE DONE CAN I NOW JUST DOWNGRADE TO 5.1.1 BECAUSE MY ORANGE IPHONE WAS ON 5.1.1 WHEN I SAVED THE DATABASE

No 5.1.1 shsh saved, no 5.1.1 restore unless it is old bootrom 3Gs. You could have saved yourself the trouble by doing iTunes backup/restore.
