    There are millions of threads of downgrading or restoring.

    Please do a simple search next time when you have questions.

    You can't downgrade without SHSH. You can only update to firmware there is currently signed by Apple (for now it's 6.1.3).

    you can only restore to the version that you have shsh blobs for. if you don't have any valid (in the case of iOS 6) shsh blobs, you MUST restore to 6.1.3 and get a tethered/semi-tethered jailbreak. There are no exceptions to this

    Make sure your hosts file is not pointing to cydia when restoring 6.1.3

    You can get a tethered jailbreak (only) by using Redsn0w and pointing it at the 6.0 IPSW.

    You will have to do a Just Boot Tethered each time you turn off or reboot the iPhone.

    I guess you really need us to hold your hands and guide you every tiny single steps? go to iclarified.com and look for guides.

    If you know the iTunes error then you can easily search what that means and how to solve it.

    If you want to JB 6.1.3 then you can easily search how that should be done.
