    Downgrade iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 6.1.2 using Sn0wbreeze

    This process involves Sn0wbreeze instead of redsn0w, for those who don’t know sn0wbreeze is a untethered jailbreak tool with a different work procedure. Sn0wbreeze doesn’t jailbreak iOS on your Device, but it makes a jailbroken iOS IPSW file that you can use to restore your device too. Since this iOS IPSW firmware file is pre-jailbroken, once you restore you don’t need to jailbreak your device anymore. This comes handy when you do frequent restores on your device, with a jailbroken iOS IPSW file you can just restore it and it will be already jailbroken.

    This method is similar to the one stated above, the only difference involved is that we will stitch the iOS SHSH blobs with the iOS IPSW firmware file to make iTunes restore it without any problem. Follow the steps below to perform the downgrade

    Even if you didn't save your blobs try to save them now using tiny Umberella, I got blobs all the way back to 4.0 on my 3gs when I tried TU on 6.1.2. they were all still available, now I'm happily back on 5.x You never know you might be lucky!
