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.

Oh no!
Isn't it possible to downgrade via a 7.0.4 ipsw file?
The restore method...

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.
