    Nope, you can only restore to current firmware - 6.1.3

    You cannot.
    You either stay on 6.1 or go up to 6.1.3

    What tweaks do you have installed? Most likely your problem is not the jailbreak itself, but what you installed after jailbreaking.

    If you want to keep your JB then you are going to need to take a slow methodical approach to this. List the tweaks you have and let us make suggestions on what to remove.

    Yep you're going to have to uninstall tweaks one by one to see if it fixes it. If not, you might have no choice.

    Somewhere along the line you didn't follow the correct procedure.

    On windows it's SHIFT-click restore than you can choose from a downloaded IPSW.

    On a Mac it is ALT-click restore.

    Also i think everybody told you that you can't restore 6.1.2 on IP5 and start removing tweaks and apps.

    Now your stuck until the next JB, best guess is end of this year.

    Unfortunately that's what happens when you choose to ignore the advice of others who know what they're talking about and decide to still do whatever you feel like.

    So now you're screwed until iOS 7 JB comes out, if it ever does. Congratulations.

    Next time listen!

    I don't believe it for a second. It's common knowledge, a simple google search will tell you that.

    Here's what you do for next time:
    Research things BEFORE doing something. NOT after.

    I wouldn't necessarily call it common knowledge. I'd say most people don't know how locked down apple's iOS is. Compared to all the other OS's out there, you wouldn't expect downgrading firmware to be so hard on an iOS device

    You don't have to believe anything you don't want to, as you have been given free will to do what you want, when you want, how you want. Common knowledge? It's not "common knowledge". I kept encountering issues whilst trying upgrade to 6.1.2 from 6.1. The errors were in iTunes that were giving me error codes, I would then Google search these error codes, which would be the most logical thing to do. Nowhere on the internet did I find those error codes associated with my specific problem. I was basically going around in circles. I spent several hours of my time on it. Several forums said I should also try restoring to the same iOS version. In the end I found out I could not upgrade is because Apple stopped signing 6.1.2 and that I could not install the same iOS version again.

    As an astrophysicist, it would be counter-productive for me to research before "doing something", when it comes to my work, to get this "research" I have to create it most of the time, research material is not always available nor always accurate, research has a source and doesn't magically appear out of matter. "Doing something" = Research. Only then can research = solution.

    This proves the internet doesn't have the answer to all questions that one may seek.

    @jharrison456

    The 30+ threads (at least 1 a day) on this subject on this forum alone would tell you in an instant that it could not be done, the same for all other big fora like modmyi. It has been this way since the iPhone 5 release last september.

    Maybe try to refine your google and search (and possibly social) skills instead of an unnecessary rant for something that has been well documented and is widely publicized.

    Your mentioned research manner might lead you into researching a new solar system for 10 years only to find out somebody else already found and named it way before you.

    This only proves not all people have the same basic search skills.
