Not without jailbreaking no. There are a few tweaks that allows you to block SMS/calls from numbers or to whitelist numbers. Blocking of numbers was not made default until iOS 7, so jailbreaking is necessary for that feature on iOS 6 and below

The firmware has nothing to do with the functionality. It's best to not directly change the firmware to suit your needs because it's unstable if it goes wrong, hence why there are tweaks developed to do so, that way you can troubleshoot it rather than hard coding it into the iOS. Is it possible to do by hard coding? Sure, but if something goes wrong, you'll be restoring every time rather than placing the device into No Substrate mode and resolving it that way.

A free alternative would be SMSNinja. I've used it for a few weeks before I bought an iBlacklist license, it did the job decently.
