    Hey. This my first iForum post, although I've been on crackberry for a while. So, i recently got an iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.5. I really want to update to iOS 6, but not 6.1.3, cos I'll really like to jailbreak. I'll prefer 6.1.2. So is there anyway to do this? I tried changing the hosts file as Jay Saurik's blog suggested, but no luck. I already have the 6.1.2 firmware from iClarified. Oh, and it's a GSM model, if theat matters.
    Please, I rREAAALLYY need this!

    The problem you are facing is the fact that Apple is no longer "signing" (authorizing) that version of iOS. Typically, when they release a new version, they stop signing the older versions - which makes using those versions non-functional. You dont ever have to upgrade the iOS version on your iDevices, but if you do, you have to go to the latest version.

    The only way around this is when you have previously used that version on your device and have saved the SHSH "blobs", or signature file. Without those blobs, which are unique to each device, you must go to the latest version of iOS if you upgrade.

    Translated: No, you can't do that. Hope you didn't REALLY "need" it.

    I know all these. I was kinda hoping there was another way around it, maybe ifaithsn0w or DFU or something. Thanks, anyway

    For the record, you can always save the available shsh for any firmware being signed, regardless of what firmware you're currently on.
