Two Ways To Downgrade iOS 6.1.3 To iOS.6.1.2

After releasing of the new iOS 6.1.3 and new iPad from Apple everyone, who had updated its gadgets, needed to jailbreak iGadgets. Because by updating your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S to 6.1.3 you lost your jailbreak. So you can downgrade iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 6.1.2.

However if you are iPhone 4S owner then I don’t advice you to downgrade iOS 6.1.3 because it doesn’t work.

This is what was written on The iPhone Dev team blog:
If you have an iPhone 4S, the basic rule above is really the only rule:  you cannot restore back to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed, no matter what (even if you saved your SHSH blobs). 
If you have an iPad2 with saved 4.x hashes, you can in fact downgrade to that 4.x but you won’t be able to get to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed (even if you saved your 5.0.1 SHSH blobs).
So if you’ve upgraded to iOS 5.1 on A4 device mistakenly and want to downgrade to a lower iOS to get back the untethered jailbreak, we’ll show you how to do so. You’ll need SHSH blobs for the required iOS to be downgraded to to be saved on your computer or on Cydia.

iFaith can downgrade iOS 6.1.3 To iOS 6.1.2

NOTE: This method works for A4 devices only: iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod touch 4G, 3G.

STEP 1: Download iFaith and iTunes 11.0.3.

STEP 2: Run iFaith, and choose “Build *signed* IPSW w/Blobs” > “Build IPSW”.

STEP 3: Now browse for the SHSH blobs saved on your computer to downgrade back to iOS 6.1.2 or iOS 5. iFaith will ask you to select the IPSW firmware for the iOS you’re on it, select iOS 6. Finally iFaith will create a new custom firmware file for you on the desktop with SHSH blobs for the firmware you are downgrading to.

STEP 4: Head to iTunes, put your device in DFU mode and select the custom firmware created by iFaith on iTunes to restore.

Downgrade iOS 6.1.3 To 6.1.2 Or Below

NOTE: This method works for all devices except the iPhone 4S but including iPad 2.

STEP 1: Download iTunes 11.0.3 and you’ll downgrade iOS to iOS 6.1.2 or below.

STEP 2: Connect your device into your computer then use the latest redsn0w jailbreak tool to put your device in “Pwned DFU” mode under Extras.

STEP 3: Now you’ll need to edit the hosts file to trick Apple’s servers. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc on Windows. On Mac, navigate directly to etc.

STEP 4: Now backup your hosts file anywhere on your computer then open it and this line at the end of the file.

STEP 5: After saving the hosts file, open iTunes and select your iOS device from the sidebar. While holding the Shift on Windows or Alt on OS X key, select Restore and choose the firmware file which you wish to downgrade to.

In some cases, iTunes will throw error 1013, just ignore it as it’s normal to happen while downgrading. At this point, your device will be in Recovery Mode with your desired version of iOS fully installed.

Step 5: Your should  be now in Recovery Mode, you can get out of this mode by downloading TinyUmbrella for Windows or for Mac OS X and selecting “Kick Out Of Recovery Mode”.

And now you your work is done. You’ve just downgraded iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 6.1.2 and earlier Apple OS on your gadget, so now you can easily to jailbreak it.
