    You can't do that.

    You can only go back to iOS 7.04 once any version of iOS 7 has been installed.

    That's right, you will have no choice but to go to the latest, 7.0.4.

    What part is wrong and what is wrong about it? If you are going to post something like that some more informants should be provided if anything is to be taken seriously.

    If you have iOS 7.1 beta installed you can update over the air to the subsequent beta releases.

    When a new beta is available just go to General > Software Update.

    The above is all correct too. You can only go back to 7.0.4. iOS 6 is no longer supported or signed for your device.

    Nope. No official/simple way to do it.

    You'd have to restore it using iTunes to a supported version.

    The install will fail. You will get a warning saying the device is not eligible or something like that.
