    I have searched.
    And am not 100% certain I've found the answer, so please don't flame me.

    Having GPS issues so I want to take my phone in.
    Running 6.1.2 jailbroken (obviously)

    #1- I don't want them updating to 6.1.3
    #2- I don't want them seeing I'm jailbroken bc they won't touch it.

    I have my blobs.
    So, can I restore to 6.1.2 without the JB
    go have it looked at,
    then re-jailbreak ?

    And a side note, I'm sure that if I get a replacement, it will be running 6.1.3 correct ?

    #1: they will most likely ask you to update your firmware to make sure it's not a hardware issue.
    # 2: they WILL touch your phone, and will either deny service should they see its jailbroken (and may blacklist your devices' warranty), or ask that you remove the jailbreak, update to the latest firmware and come back.

    - blobs at the moment are useless, we're hoping someone finds a way to make them useful again, in the meantime all we can do is save them. So, No, you won't be able to downgrade (unless you have an iPhone 4 or below).

    It's not so likely they have updated their stock, they probably still have 6.1.2 on their stock, better hurry though, the weekend is almost over and you may just be too late.

    I've read many threads on this site and other sites about restoring/upgrading my iPhone4 to 6.1.2 but I am still having issues getting my phone restored. I would greatly appreciate some help from anyone willing to offer. If this is not the proper place for my questions, please kindly point me to the proper location.

    Background:
    Iphone 4
    Version: 6.1 (10B144)
    Carrier: AT&T 14.0
    Model: MC536LL/A
    Modem Firmware: 04.12.05

    --Cydia has stored and I have fetched..
    iPhone3,1 (xxxxx number) remote blobs:
    6.1.2, 6.1, 6.0.1,
    5.1.1

    --I used redsn0w 0.9.15b3 to stitch the locally saved 6.1.2 shsh files. I used the downloaded ipsw: iPhone3,1_6.1.2_10B146_Restore.ipsw

    --I have edited my host file several different ways - with and without commenting out the different IP gs.apple.com addresses. Currently I have the file set to:
    #74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com

    --Used TinyUmbrella-6.12.00 to start TSS server

    --I then place my phone in PWNed DFU mode and alt/option + restore iphone in iTunes (11.0.2). At this point itunes begins the restore process but always stalls then ends in the error message:
    "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1601)."

    note: I have tried leaving the Redsn0w both running and shut down after placing the phone in PWNed DFU mode.

    --If I attempt a similar process without placing the phone in DFU mode 1st (alt/option + restore iphone in iTunes (11.0.2)), I get this result:
    "The iPhone "(name) iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (11)." After this process, the iphone has the image on the screen where a usb cable points at the itunes icon.

    I feel like I am missing/overlooking something simple. Again, I would greatly appreciate some help from anyone willing to offer. Thanks in advance!

    So after going through many pages i am still unclear if i can do a clean install of 6.1.2

    In the past I just had to change the host file so it did not point to apple, press ctrl and just pick the firmware i wanted to re install.

    Still work this way?

    So you can no longer restore at all back to an older version of iOS on newer devices?

    So your pretty much screwed if you ever have to restore then..

    So, once I click that "restore" button and the device starts being restored - will my iphone be now blank? If it will be blank then how do I get everything back in the device if it is blank.

    I have read a few websites and forums trying find the answer to this and most of it is way over my head so I am hoping someone here can help by keeping it simple.

    Out of the blue my jailbroken iPhone 3gs begun repeatedly restarting itself until the battery was exhausted. I connected it to my macbook to charge it and accidentally updated it! I go nowhere following online instructions to re-jailbreak it, which left me trapped me on the "activation" screen. So today I got it properly unlocked/jailbroken again and all of my contacts and notes are gone (I expected this, but its frustrating!).

    If I connect it iTunes again and sync it with the last back up I have will I get all my info back or is it a dead loss?

    My settings are:
    Version 4.1 (8B117)
    Modem Firmware 06.15.00

    and I am unsure which version it was running before I got it jailbroken today. Any SIMPLE instructions would be very much appreciated. :)

    I have a question. If i decide to jailbreak my iphone 5 with 6.1.2 and then something in the system went wrong so i want to restore to 6.1.2 and retry to jailbreak it, is it possible to do that? or if you restore the phone it will definitely update to 6.1.3?

    Is your phone carrier locked?
    what is your current BaseBand ( Radio portion of the firmware) you can find it under settings/general/info at the bottom modversion

    If it goes smooth depends on the curremt setup

    Guys, Is there a trick to update my iPhone 4 currently on iOS 5.0.1 (non-jailbreak) to iOS 6 ?

    I know that Apple isn't signing anymore iOS 6 but maybe if I JB my iOS 5, maybe it becomes possible ?

    (I do not have shsh blobs for iOS 6)
