    I had earlier made a backup when I was on iOS 7.0.4
    Now I've upgraded to 7.1 and I want to downgrade my phone because there's no jailbreak for 7.1
    Can I downgrade through the earlier back up which I had done when I was on iOS 7.0.4?

    I'm using iPhone 5 Global.

    Not possible. You cannot downgrade an iPhone 5.

    Isn't it possible to downgrade via a 7.0.4 ipsw file?

    Nope, Apple is no longer signing any version of iOS lower than 7.1.

    The answer isn't changing. It's currently impossible.

    You have no other option but to wait until they release a Jailbreak for iOS 7.1.

    Also, next time, DO NOT Upgrade until there's a Jailbreak for that particular version. I've learned my lesson.

    Good Luck.
