Hopefully the greater experience of this forum can help, I have an iPhone 5 currently on 6.1.2 all JB and running nice EXCEPT i have a faulty camera :( seems to be abit of an issue with the i5. Good news is apple will replace it :) now i know theres no guarentee of getting a new phone on >6.1.3 but IF i do can i restore from icloud back up during initial setup without it forcing an update to 6.1.4? Can't remember if it did when i got my i5 when new.

You can restore content and settings, but you cannot downgrade firmware
You are not forced to upgrade firmware.

Cheers, i knew i wouldn't be able to go back down but wasn't sure if it would force me to go up with the restore. Just have to keep fingers crossed i get an "old" i5.

If you get one with 6.1.3 then you might as well update it to 6.1.4. Both versions cannot be jailbroken.

Yeah meant getting one on 6.1.2 or below as I know that was the latest JB firmware for the i5.
