    You can ONLY restore to 6.1.3, nothing else. Currently no exceptions or workaround to this for the newer devices such as the iPad 4

    So I guess I'll download the 6.1.3 and restore to that?

    Yes, or just click restore in iTunes. NOTE: iOS 6.1.3 can NOT be jailbroken on the iPad 4!

    can you be more specific on what error you are receiving?

    edit: do you have the wifi version? at&t version? or verizon version?
    you might be downloading the wrong firmware package. just open itunes and click restore, it'll download the proper ipsw for your device and proceed with the restore process

    That's very strange. Is your hosts file pointed at cydia's server? If it is, change it. Otherwise, try the restore after putting your device into DFU mode
