I have an iPhone 5 and I want to restore to iOS 6.1.2, I have the ISPW file downloaded but every time I attempt to restore, it says

 "The iOS Device “Device Name” could not be updated. This device isn’t eligible for the requested build."

I've tried this

When I use TinyUmbrella, it says the server can not be found, try again.

You can't, even with SHSH. A5+ cannot restore to anything except the latest on iOS 6.x.

You cannot ! Either stay where you are at or restore to 6.1.3
