How to fix some mysterious problems.

I just had my IPhone 4 6.0.1 jail broken but had to restore it to have the screen and speaker fixed by Sprint. I have been trying to use ifaith to see if I had the blobs but just 6.1.3, but then I used redsn0w and it said I had the 6.0.1 blobs on cydia. I have tried to use the same 6.0.1 firmware to restore it thru iTunes using the ctrl shift method and nothing works!! I was wondering if there is anyone that could help me out please

You'll need to use iFaith, redsn0w hasn't been updated in a long time.

You can use iFaith to save the 6.0.1 SHSH from Cydia, and then attempt to make a stitched ipsw. (I say attempt because there's a 50/50 chance your 6.0.1 shsh is useless)

This has also happened to me and I was told that most of the iOS SHSH blobs are worthless. You can attempt to use the build button in iFaith, if it gives you an error message then your blobs are worthless.

Sorry to correct @benwiggs1, not all shsh are worthless, only the ones for 6.x which cydia saved free for you are having problems, moreover 5.x, 4.x etc are perfectly healthy. The ones which you saved by tinyumbrella/ifaith on your computer while apple was still signing them are also good and even the ones which you dumped on cydia server using redsn0w/ifaith during the period apple was still signing are good. And if anyone has successful 6.x running on the iphone can still fetch the good blobs from the iphone and save them on cydia even now.
