Help restore iP5 6.1 w Evasion

So i jailbroke my phone with Evasion with 6.1 but how can i restore to factory? I tried once but got a 'device not eligible for the requested build'. Should i get 6.1.2? I don't care about unlocking or jb' ing in the future.

You can only restore to firmware currently signed by Apple - currently 6.1.2

Only way for clean restore is going to 6.1.2 unless you saved your BLOBs for 6.1.0

Poster has an iPhone 5
Saved SHSH will not allow any non-signed firmware.

Yes you can always restore a jailbroken device to a stock firmware. Just make sure you're restoring to a firmware which Apple is currently signing.
