    I was on 6.1.3, downgraded to 5.1.1 through redsn0w using SHSH Blobs. Is it possible to upgrade to 6.1.2?

    If you device is still jailbroken, I do believe you can.

    I'm afraid that blobs for 6.x are currently worthless. You're stuck where you are or upgrading to the current firmware being signed.

    Edit: Please ignore my post. I didn't notice the post was made in the 3GS section.

    If you have full 6.1.2 SHSH blobs for your 3GS, you can create a custom 6.1.2 firmware and stitch the blobs to it. Use iFaith to see if you have a full or a partial SHSH.

    The alternative is to use a semi-tethered 6.1.3 jailbreak.

    It just keeps getting harder to keep track of, doesn't it? :)

    I accidentally upgraded to 6.1.3. Did a tethered jailbreak through redsn0w. But it was useless, cydia wasn't working. Every time I opened it, got crashed!
    Then I switched back to 5.1.1 (thanks SHSH blobs) :)
    The reason for switching back again to
    5.1.1 is that it is consuming a lot of battery + the feel and look of iOS 6 was awesome!

    I don't have SHSH Blobs for 6.1.2.

    You can't restore to 6.1.2 then, unfortunately.

    You could try the semi-tether on 6.1.3 again. It might have just been a Cydia glitch last time.
