    Hello,
    After I checked some of the features of jailbreaking iOS devices, I decider to go for it. Unfortunaly, I upgraded to 6.1.3. So, the only way to jailbreak is to go back to 6.1.2. I downloaded the IPSW file, made a full backup on my computer, shift-clicked "Check for updates" and I selected the file. After a few moments, it tells me it can't be updated. So my only way now is to fully restore my iPod Touch with 6.1.2. However, if I do a full backup on my computer, if I select when setting up my iPod: "Restore from an iTunes backup", will it be exactly how it was when I backed up all my data?

    Also, I know a guy in school that he jailbroken his iPod Touch 4G and he made so he could have different unlock types, like instead of the basic 4-digit code, he can get something like the Android style (with 9 circles you have to correctly link) and that he could play a few notes on a virtual piano keyboard. How do I get theses?

    You can't downgrade your iPod to an early iOS version.

    I know you can downgrade. What I'm asking is if I backup all my data and if I restore and I restore from a backup, will it be EXACTLY like it was before the backup?

    You cannot downgrade an iPod Touch 5G unless Apple is signing the target firmware. Because Apple is no longer signing 6.1.2, you cannot downgrade to it.

    I read that THEY ARE ways to downgrade, without iTunes. I have the IPSW file, all I ask is if restoring from a backup, my iPod will be exactly like it was before the backup.

    And I'm telling you, there are no ways to downgrade an A5+ device (like an iPod Touch 5G) without iTunes because they lack a bootrom exploit.

    Why? I don't understand. But can't I just press "restore" while holding the shift key, select the file, and restore?

    When you restore your iPod, iTunes asks Apple if it is allowed to restore that version of iOS onto your iPod. In the case of iOS 6.1.2, Apple will say "No, restore only 6.1.3". Because your device does not have any exploits within its starting sequence, we (the public) cannot override Apple's "No" with our own "Yes".

    However, if I press "Restore" while holding the shift key (PC) or option key (Mac), it will asks you for the file. I already done that with my Nano on iTunes 9 (on my iMac G4) when I had to restore so it could work under Mac, because he could not search for the Apple servers.

    iPod Nanos don't ask Apple. Starting with the iPhone 3Gs, all iOS devices must have an internet connection in order to ask Apple what version of iOS they are allowed to install. You can click on the iOS 6.1.2 IPSW all you want, Apple will tell iTunes "No" and iTunes won't restore it.

    Then how could I jailbreak my device if I can't really easily downgrade and if Evasion doesn't work with 6.1.3? I don't really wanna turn this discussion into pirating stuff, but is there any way to bypass the iTunes Internet check?

    You can't jailbreak it. There is a way to bypass the iTunes check thing, but it only works on A4 and older devices. Your iPod Touch has an A5 in it and because of that, there is no way to bypass the check.

    If you have an iPhone 4/iTouch 3G (i think) or older you might be able to downgrade, but otherwise you're SOL.

    Sorry, if you have a warranty you can get a replacement and ask for the oldest iPod hey have to increase the chances of it having <6.1.3, but otherwise there's nothing you can do.

    To reiterate what has already been said (because you don't exactly seem to believe what the other person has explained to you, very well) you cannot jailbreak your device.

    Once the newer devices are upgraded, they cannot be downgraded. You are experiencing this when iTunes tells you that it is not available for the requested build.

    The only thing I want, is to try to restore. All I want to know, is if restoring from a backup will make my iPod like it was beforr the backup.

    With the exception of your firmware, which will be 6.1.3.

    Thanks. But I heard they are programs that are made so you could restore your iPod to an IPSW file. But is it possible to use an jailbroken device and connect it to your computer and connect my iPod at the computer and use the jailbreak feature to be able to restore my iPod Touch?

    Those programs only work for A4 and older devices. Your device is an A5 device and it will not work.

    That is a scam. Do not use or download it.

    Bad program? I know it just because it has a password. I will not complete any surveys, and I want to know if it's a correct file. I have no choice but to bypass winrar password. And yes I will do a virus scan after all that.

    For the millionth or whatever time, it isn't possible to restore your iPod touch 5th gen to any other firmware than the latest if you are on iOS 6! There is no jailbreak feature to restore your iPod touch to another version other than 6.1.3 currently.

    ----------

    As said above, it's a scam. I don't know how else to answer your question about "why can't I use that program" when it has been clearly stated it's a scam

    of course its a scam.. duh!

    but the OP just doesn't get it.

    people have answered his questions over and over and over again and it seems he will persist until someone tells him exactly what he wants to hear.

    So WHY do you have to send it to me? I tought it was real, but just the fact that it has a password means it's fake.

    So, what I do now? I can't downgrade, I can't jailbreak, but I want to. Is there one way out or I am permanently stuck?
