For those of you who upgraded to iOS 6.1.6 but forgot to save the SHSH file for it, you’ll not be able to untethered jailbreak the device and unlock your iPhone. Therefore, you can only be running on 4.1 or 6.1.6 only. Currently, there is no tools to create an iOS 6.1.6 Custom Firmware. So if you want to update to 6.1.6 then just restore the original firmware using iTunes.
