    I was having problems with my iPhone and it refused to restore on 6.1.2 so it looked like my only choice was to update which I now horribly regret doing. Is there any way to get back my 6.1.2 update unless there is a jailbreak for 6.1.4 I dont know about.

    I do have the IPSW for 6.1.2 but it wont restore on itunes.

    Unless you manually made an SHSH backup with TinyUmbrella or something probably not. Cydia did have some SHSH backup feature but my iOS device is permanently on 4.2 (yay one year support >_>) so I don't know what happened to that. If it still works properly everything may not be lost, but you'd need someone with more knowledge to tell you that.

    Its an iphone 5. SHSH+apticket is rather useless as it requires an exploitable bootrom (any device <=iphone4 has limera1n exploit).

    You can't downgrade, nor will there be a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.4 as all exploits are being saved for iOS 7. You're out of luck.

    September if you're lucky, October if you aren't. The exploit will probably be out around the holiday season.

    I have just one last question.

    I know iFaith allows and IOS device to revert back to an older firmware. Is there an update coming for that soon to allow 6.1.4 to go back or anything else?
