    Using an iPod touch 4g, iOS 6... I was hoping that upgrading would speed up my slowing down device which was jailbroken, but with all this new lag and the barely working App Store I want to go back...

    Is it possible to go back to iOS 5.1.1?

    I actually cant find anything, but i guessing you might be able to, as long as Apple is still signing 5.1.1.

    You updated without backing up blobs? Then you're outta luck. You should never update without backing up blobs.

    Whoever said this update should be released to the public without fixing everything should get sent to prison for sucking at life

    Apple is no longer signing certificates for iOS 5.1.1. It is impossible to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 unless you have your blobs backed up.

    There is a possible light at the end of the tunnel.

    Cydia itself might have backed up your SHSH blobs for every firmware that you actually accessed Cydia from. If your device was jailbroken on 5.1.1 and you ever opened up Cydia, it probably backed up your SHSHs for you. To check, you can download TinyUmbrella, connect your iPod, select it, and go under the Advanced tab. Under that tab there should be a toggle for "Request SHSH from Cydia." Check that toggle and click Save SHSH in the top-right corner of the application. If Cydia did back-up your SHSH blobs, TinyUmbrella will download them from Cydia's servers and you'll be able to restore to the appropriate firmware as your device is to the limera1n exploit, as it has an A4 processor.
