    Hi. Is it possible to unjailbreak my iPhone 5 and keep it running 6.1.2? If so, how?

    No, there isn't a way to unjailbreak and keep it running on the same firmware

    What ilexrat does is delete everything and return it to "stock"

    But doesn't that keep it jailbroken? I want to sell my iPhone on eBay unjailbroken but give the option for a potential buyer to jailbreak it by leaving it at firmware 6.1.2.

    Unfortuantely, I don't think it can be done :(

    Apple isn't signing 6.1.2 anymore, unless 6.1.2 is the last version your device supports. I think, in order to unjailbreak, you'll have to upgrade to iOS 7.

    I think the devteam are working on an iOS 7 jailbreak though.

    Yes.
    Leaves it jb still but completely wiped.
    If someone wants it jb then it's perfect. If not all the new buyer has to do is plug it to iTunes and restore it to the latest iOS 7.

    I found where I can download Firmware Version 6.1.2. In theory, I can just download this and restore that way, or no?

    That will not work because Apple is no longer signing iOS6 firmware for the iPhone 4 and above.

    No because apple has to approve it through iTunes when you restore it.
