    Default How to Upgrade iPhone 4 to ios 6.1.2 instead of 6.1.3?

    How to Upgrade iPhone 4 to ios 6.1.2 instead of 6.1.3?
    1. How do I upgrade my iPhone 4 (ios 4.1, not jailbroken) to ios 6.1.2 instead of 6.1.3? Some say that it needs to download 6.1.2 firmware first and use iTunes and press shift+update and choose the downloaded firmware. Will this work? Do I need to put the device into DFU mode?
    2. I have another iPhone 4 which its ios is 6.1.3 now and I don't save any ssh using tinyumbrella or other tools for degrading purposes. I have neither do a backup before using iTunes. Can I restore the device back to its factory firmware (ios 4) using iTunes and jailbreak it/ update to ios 6.1.2 and jailbreak it?

    I was able to do this on my older iP4 (upgrade to 6.1.2) but you need to use greenp0ison to create a pre-jailbroken IPSW of 6.1.2 if I recall. You will not be able to just upgrade to 6.1.2 using iTunes alone. If you google around there are some instructions on this. It's fairly simple to do. Just download the 6.1.2 IPSW and greenp0ison and follow the prompts when you run the program.

    Regarding your phone on 6.1.3 I believe you are out of luck for going back to iOS 4 but I would do some googling to be sure.
