Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.2 or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

I already downloaded the ISPW for ios 6.1.2 but when I tried to upgrade it in iTunes, Apple wouldn't allow it since 6.1.3 is already out. What do I do? I've read some stuff on using TinyUmbrella, but to use it I'd apparently need SHSH blobs for 6.1.2., and I have no idea how to get that. I've also tried using Redsn0w 9.15b3, but I'm lacking blobs, according to it. Is there any way to upgrade to an ios that is not the latest, or do I really have to go with 6.1.3? And I don't really understand the concepts of blobs and SHSH, so it'd be awesome if you were as specific - and as simple - as possible. :)

Is your iPod jailbroken just now? Open Cydia and check the top of the page to see what SHSH have you got.

cannot upgrade/downgrade without blobs. cydia blobs for ios 6.0-6.1.2 seems mostly broken. if u havent saved blobs using ifaith before, then its unlikely ul have a good ios 6.x.x version other than 6.1.3(not that its good though)

This is thesnoringkoala. Couldn't comment with my account so made a new one.

@ml05019- My iPod has been jailbroken ever since. I have SHSH iOS 4.3.5, 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 only.

@wertz- Which blobs are you talking about when you said "saved blobs using ifaith "? Blobs for ios 6.1.2? If so, how do I get that when my iPod is still at 5.1.1?

@spockers- Okay, I already have iFaith but I don't really know where to get blobs for ios 6.1.2 So where do I get that from?
