    Worked fine for me, iPhone 4S 5.1.1

    However I had to search google to find out how to get OUT of DFU mode~ this should be listed as the last step in this tutorial

    it SEEMS that it worked on my 4s and it only took 1 try and about a minute. If it didn't really work then I don't really care since I wouldn't update to 6 unless if that were jailbroken or if 6 is so much better than 5.1.1 that I don't care about the jailbreak at which point why do I care about the stitching and jailbroken 5.1.1.

    btw to get out of dfu mode simply hold home and power buttons together for a few seconds and it will restart normally.

    Thanks for this timely article! I knew I'd need to do this before iOS6 dropped, but I hadn't taken the time to learn how since APtickets came into being.

    I use an iPhone 4 with iOS 5.0.1 (also a 3GS with the same).
    I used iFaith to create a custom IPSW but restoring on the 3GS didn't work. Haven't tried on the iPhone 4.
    Anyway, my question is, will this process create a restorable IPSW for my iPhone 4 and/or 3GS on iOS 5.0.1, or do I NEED iOS 5.1.1?

    If you have you blobs saved, then yes.

    I follow the guide but I can't get this working on my Iphone 4S with 5.1.1 . But I can't get this working because I think it's impossible to with Iphone 4S since this device doesn't support Pwned DFU yet.
    If someone, who has a solution, can help me I would really appreciate it

    I'm with you on the restore problem with 4s. I was able to create the 5.1.1 firmware for my 4s with no issues but restoring it is a different issue all together. Pwned DFU doesn't work on 4s per redsn0w. I have tried regular dfu with no luck and I tried restore in itunes as well as redsn0w=nogo. Any help or solutions to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Tried that the restore goes all the way till the end of restore where confirming with apple then the error pops but I got a fix and it worked.

    After the error I put the phone into DFU mode and then jailbroke with redsnow and the phone started up.

    Hope this helps others.

    How did you manage to go to DFU mode? because im stuck in Recovery mode after the error -1. Ive tried using recboot and tinyumbrella to kick me out of recovery mode but it cant. Please help me.

    With the power cord plugged into the computer I Pressed and held the sleep wake button for five seconds then press the home button ( sleep and home buttons at same time) till I heard the computer make noise and then I let go of the sleep wake and held onto the home button for a long time till I heard the computer make a noise again and iTunes started up and I was in DFU mode I believe. Then ran redsnow.

    But that doesnt restore it with stitched shsh blobs firmware, right? or after you have put it to dfu, you did the method from here, and jailbroke?

    After stitching the firmware and restoring in iTunes I got the -1 error then I dfu'ed it and ran redsnow as Norman using the normal firmware not the stitched one.

    This would be great IF IT WORKED.
    I did this to all my iDevices. iPhone 4, iPad1 and iPad3.

    The other day I upgraded my iPhone 4 to IOS6. Didn't like it so I restored back to 5.1.1.
    I had to use the original 5.1.1 as this patched version kept failing when I tried.

    Today I upgraded my iPad 3. I found out it cant be jailbroken so I tried to downgrade to 5.1.1.
    FAIL. Again this patched file DOESN'T WORK.

    So, yea, you can add SHSH to the files but it WONT WORK.

    Even when the iPhone 4 was doengraded to 5.1.1 I tried the patched file again and it still errors and fails.

    TOTALLY USELESS and DOESN'T WORK.

    Stitching SHSH to firmware only works on A4 idevices.
