How To Downgrade From iOS 6.0.1 to iOS 5.1.1 On A4 Device For Untethered Jailbreak

Downgrade iOS 6.0.1 to iOS 5.1.1 Firmware: Previously we discuss about the possibilities of downgrading from iOS 6.0.1 to iOS 5.1.1 firmware and saving the SHSH blobs for future use.  In case you have by mistake or accidentally updated to iOS 6.0.1 firmware and stuck there waiting for Untethered Jailbreak  and now want to downgrade to lower iOS firmware, then now you can downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 firmware to get Untethered Jailbreak and unlock via ultrasn0w.

Downgrading from iOS 6.0.1 firmware to iOS 5.1.1 firmware is only possible if you have saved the SHSH Blobs and APTickets. Also this downgrade guide is only meant for A4 iDevices i.e.  iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4G only. Users who rely on Ultrasn0w unlock must use custom iOS firmware to avoid any baseband up-gradation which Ultrasn0w does not support at the time.
