    Device is an iPhone4 GSM that was stuck in recovery mode on a tethered 4.3.5 Jailbreak.

    Eventually managed to update it to custom IPSW iOS5.1.1 preserving baseband at 4.10.01

    Was going to use Absinthe2.0.4 for untethered JB but won't let me as phone needs to be activated (which I can't)

    I know I can use sn0wbreeze2.9.6 to create custom IPSW activated but not sure if this would preserve the baseband at 4.10.01?

    So I'm wondering if there is a way to create a custom IPSW which preserves the baseband but also activates it for Absinthe2.0.4 to carry out untethered iOS5.1.1 jailbreak?

    Update: Sorry, I knew that would happen! I just posted this, then figured it out using redsn0w to JB tethered, activated & preserving baseband then installed Rocky Racoon from Cydia!

    Technically you don't tether jailbreak 5.1.1 because there's already an untethered jailbreak

    But at least you solved your issue on your own

    Can I ask, what tool can untether JB 5.1.1, other than absinthe that has the activation issue I mentioned?

    Do you know which version, as it was redsn0w I used and it tethered JB'd it?

    I'm confused of what you trying to do. I thought Evo already helped you?

    No worries - doesn't really matter now, figured it out myself

    Basically couldn't untether JB 5.1.1 with absinthe as I can't activate iPhone (no valid SIM)
    Didn't want to use sn0wbreeze to get around above as I needed to preserve baseband
    So used redsn0w 0.9.11b4 to JB 5.1.1 with custom IPSW while preserving baseband and activating - but was tethered JB?
    Installed rocky racoon from cydia to get untethered JB.

    Sorry for being confusing - I'm quite talented at that Thanks
