How to fix some mysterious problems.

I've searched and searched and haven't found a clear answer. I would need to create a custom IPSW to preserve my baseband, I assume. Would anyone be so kind as to outline any options I might have? Whatever blobs for future iOs releases I had were in Cydia's hands and likely lost. What can I do if I try to update and am told I have an invalid APTicket? Thanks in advance.

If you need to preserve your baseband, that tells me you must be unlocking with ultrasn0w. This also means you have baseband 1.59. Unfortunately, iOS 5.x is the end of the line for that baseband. It won't work on iOS 6 (or of course 7). See this thread for the gory details.

Also, unless you have blobs verified good with iFaith (no other software can verify them, and blobs saved by cydia are useless (see here for that story)), you can't update to 6.1.3 anyway and would be forced to iOS 7.

Thanks, that what I had gathered, but wanted to be certain. I was aware of the Cydia unusable blobs story, but wasn't aware that 5.x was end of the line for the 1.59 baseband.

My phone's perfectly fine as is, so there's no heartbreak here. Just wished to update a few pieces of software which now only run on 6.x and above. Thanks again.

As spockers has already noted, software unlocking will not work for iOS 6 nor 7 with the iPhone 4. You could also consider IMEI (factory unlocking) for your iPhone 4 unless from a carrier who is cost prohibitive to proceed via that method, eg SoftBank Japan. Do you know which carrier your iPhone was originally locked to and which carrier do you use it with now?
