    It isn't possible currently. If you're restoring your phone, you'll have to update to the current signed iOS.

    You mean the beta for 7.1? Not unless you're a developer.

    Why would you want to update to a beta anyways?

    6.1.4 isn't being signed by Apple anymore. You can't restore it on your iPhone 5.

    If you were able to go back to iOS 6.1.4 from iOS 7.0 Beta, that is because iOS 7 wasn't released and 6.1.4 was still being signed.

    You were able to go back to 6.1.4 from the beta for iOS 7 (before it was publicly released) because 6.1.4 was still the only signed version for iPhone 5, aka it was the current version available to public. You couldn't even install the beta for iOS 7 because they have all expired.

    At this point there is no way for you to keep 6.1.4. If you installed 7.1 beta, you would only be able to revert back to 7.0.4 (the only currently signed version of iOS for the iPhone 5).

    You're stuck with iOS 7.0.4 or nothing.
