How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have iPhone 4 (A1332 ECM 380B) with current iOS 5.0.1 installed. For carrier i must use ultrasnow because iPhone is not fabric unlocked. Can I use redsnow or any other JB tool to update to any iOS 6 version ? Cydia TSS Center show SHSH: 4.1 - 5.1.1r1 is this mean that I only can update to max. 5.1.1r1 ?

Thank you.

But just so you know you can use ifaith to dump your current iOS blobs so you can always restore back to that iOS version.

Yes if you don't have the proper shsh saved for your phone then you will only be able to upgrade/update to the latest iOS apple is signing. Sorry but that's brakes hope this helps.

If I can only update from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 then that is not worth of risk :(

I suppose but what risk do you speak long as you have shsh saved for 5.0.1 and build a signed Ipsw with ifaith then there really is no risk. A4 devices are always gonna be able to use limera1n exploit. Also now that 7x jailbreak is out wait a few days till things are all worked out like the top of this page says to do and update and jailbreak ios7. Does this help?

I understand you but iOS 5.1.1 is not much better than 5.0.1, iOS 7 sounds much better and I will wait few days to see what happened. Thank you on your answers.
