    Since you're currently JB... check Cydia's homepage to see if "5.1.1" is listed @ the top. If it is... use TinyUmbrella to extract the SHSH's from Cydia's server.

    On my phone on cydia homepage it has a list across the top of the screen 4.3.5, 5.0.1, 5.1, 5.1.1, 5.1.1r1

    What does this mean then , i know its ios's but where do i download them from?

    I have no clue what to do as already jb on .jailbreak.me. My ipad is on jb on 5.1.1 so i know that i will have to use absinthe as i used that before but my main problem is i dont know how to go from my 4.3.3-5.1.1 on my phone as already , thanks, hopefully you guys will come up trumps and help me out here , thank you ;-)

    You'll only get iTunes errors using this method. Apple is no longer signing iOS 5.1.1... thus the need for your 5.1.1 SHSH's. Saved SHSH's are Apple's "Virtual Signature" for that particular iOS version.

    Download the 5.1.1 IPSW that I linked, to your desktop... then you'll need to use redsn0w or sn0wbreeze (in conjunction w/ your 5.1.1 SHSH's) to create a Custom IPSW using the 5.1.1 IPSW that you downloaded. When Apple is no longer signing a particular iOS version.. the only way to downgrade or upgrade to it is through a "Custom" IPSW.

    That I'm not 100% sure of. I always use redsn0w or sn0wbreeze... not certain if Absinthe has the capability of creating a Custom IPSW, like you need.

    Ok Thomas no worries ref the below that you said above

    Using redsn0w to restore through iTunes with a custom 5.1.1 firmware...
    This assumes you have saved SHSH blobs saved locally on PC or remotely in Cydia....and a stock 5.1.1 firmware downloaded to PC
    1- Open redsn0w
    2- click Extras
    3-click SHSH Blobs
    4-Click Stitch
    3-click IPSW ( select your stock 5.1.1 firmware..)
    4- click local(if you saved your SHSH blobs on PC) and Cydia(if blobs are saved in Cydia)
    Your stitched firmware on 5.1.1 will be created.. ready for a restore.


    Edit - changed post due to wrong information..
