How To Downgrade iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 6.1.2

Downgrading from one iOS version to another can be very challenging when one lacks information, understand, tools and help.

Whenever, Apple releases a new firmware for their devices, older firmware will not be signed anymore. This means that it would be impossible to restore an iDevice to a firmware that Apple terms as obsolete or old.

While this is not a bad thing in itself, the issue is that some firmware can be jailbroken untethered on some devices while some cannot be jailbroken at all.

Right now, iOS 6.1.2 can be jailbroken untethered on all iOS 6 compatible devices using Evasi0n tool, however, some can not be jailbroken at all on iOS 6.1.3, Therefore, the need to downgrade to this earlier version (iOS 6.1.2).

To achieve this, the following items are needed

  1. lolkip says:

    what if u dont have saved the shsh blobs for 6.1.2 how downgrade then?

  2. Akin says:

    If you don’t have any saved shsh blobs for ios 6.1.2 whether remotely or locally, you won’t be able to downgrade

  3. Mormecy says:

    Me too, anyone ?

  4. asad says:

    I have iPhone 4 I hv accidentally updated to iOS 6.1.3 n my baseband is 04.12.05 . My qus is can I downgrade my phone to 6.1.2 ? Plzz help

  5. Akin says:

    If you have your full SHSH blobs for iOS 6.1.2 saved to your computer with iFaith or TinyUmbrella yyou can downgrade. But it will be a tethered jailbreak just like 6.1.3. So you may just remain on your current firmware and save its blobs for future restoration

  6. FYI says:

    Finally, even on cydia it tells you about the problems with shsh blobs on iOS 6. I do hope you guys have saved shsh blobs aside from 6.1.2.

    Again, if you follow these steps right here, you’ll have yourself a tethered jb on 6.1.2. No more solution to that, for now.

  7. jailbreakwhere says:

    Nobody gives a damn. Whatever you prefer, they’re all just phones. So relax, don’t be so insecure. ;)

  8. asad says:

    I haven’t saved Shsh blob before :( . Ooo I hv to wait for the next jailbreak , there is no way I can turn to 6.1.2 :( …. Thank q for replying :)

  9. Akin says:

    Try saving blobs for your present firmware in case you want to downgrade from iOS 7.0 or 6.1.4 if they become available

  10. odedo1 says:

    I used redsn0w and 5.1.1 firmware to downgrade iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 from 6.1.3 to 5.1.1 then I jail broken both and installed ultrasn0w, now both are unlocked and running.
    your problem is that ultrasn0w was not upgraded to iOS 6 so the best solution is 5.1.1

  11. Folk says:

    Not useful for 4s! Damm

  12. dinesh says:

    Hi all,

  15. random guy says:

    it is supposed to be teathered.

  16. random guy says:

    they added an update to sn0wbreeze, now it is automatically untethered with evasi0n (if it helps anyone)
    \

  17. random guy says:

    try to use evasi0n to rejailbreak

  18. Kayla says:

    After I do step 5 all I get is a message that says processing. It stays like that for like an hour and doesn’t do anything.

  19. Vlad says:

    Hi ! i can’t downgrade to ios 6.1.2 do due error 3194 , what should i do ?

  20. akin says:

    @Vlad,First, did you stitch a locally saved 6.1.2 shsh blob with the 6.1.2 ipsw before downgrading to it? If you didn’t, that might be d problem.

    Secondly, if you did d first step already, check your host file, perhaps its pointing to the wrong server. If it is, you can try correcting that or using another computer.

  21. jane says:

    i am trying to upgrade from ios 4.1 to at least ios 6.My first upgrade because my phone is jailbroken too. i have no other upgrades before this and only available now is 6.1.3 which i dont like. what steps should i follow. I wanted to be in ios 6.

  22. Akin says:

    I don’t think you can do that if you don’t have shsh blobs stored on your computer. You can only upgrade to iOS 6.1.3 as of now

  23. shenna says:

    Well I do everything with snowbreeze correctly and whe it starts to downgrade in itunes the icon of the snow comes out in my ipod correctly and all and it seems to be downgraded right but then it finishes with error 37 and my ipod stays complety on black screen.Itunes does read it but it wont restore or turn back on after a few trys with itunes I managed to restore it back to 6.1.3 but I cant seem to downgrade it at all I did my brothers downgrade prefectly to 6.1 but It dont want to work for mines any solutions? Please I really want to jailbreak my ipod again. I upgraded thinkink there was a jailbreak for that version. :(

  24. Akin says:

    Error 37 sometimes happens when you stitch the wrong shsh blobs for one device to another device. So make sure you stitch the right shsh blob for the device.
    You can’t use another person’s blob to stitch to your own blob for another device.

  25. PUN says:

    Hi. When we welcome full jailbreak for 6.1.3 for iphone 3gs?

  26. Imfamousguy says:

    Can we downlgrade iPhone 4S iso 7 beta to ISO6.1.2
    Or
    Please tell me if I can restore iso 6.1.2 on iPhone 4S
    I m already on 6.1.2 and jailbreaked.

  27. Akin says:

    Have you saved your SHSH blobs with iFaith locally? If yes, then you can successfully downgrade. Just stitch your shsh blobs to your iOS 6.1.2 firmware and downgrade normally.

    On the otherhand, if you have not saved your SHSH blobs locally with iFAith, you won’t be able to downgrade to iOS 6.1.2.

  28. Jgelety says:

    Where can I get these SHSH blobs I need? I’m on the iPad 3 which is running 6.1.3. It came with that version when I bought it. Aren’t SHSH blobs device specific? If so am I screwed since I’ve never been able to save them prior to this device running 6.1.3?

  29. mehan says:

    Its device specific and since it came with your device, it means you don’t have any available shsh blobs saved.

    Furthermore, you can’t jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 or downgrade.

    So yes, you are screwed. However, perhaps, an untethered jailbreak would come soon after iOS 7 release.

  30. Adevian says:

    I have an iphone 4 8gb with 5.1.1 jailbroken. I want to upgrade to a 6.1.2 and do the evasi0n jailbreak.

    Thank you.

  36. Online loans says:

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  37. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  38. Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.

  41. Heya! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the fantastic work!

  49. buying house says:

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

  50. Appreciating the persistence you put into your website and in depth information you offer. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  59. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its field. Amazing blog!

  60. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?

Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!

  67. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  68. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

  73. Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

  76. Very good blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

  77. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your site and detailed information you present. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  78. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  79. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
