How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have tried everything..

I have an iPhone 5 GSM jailbroken running 6.1.2 and I need to reset it to stock firmware 6.1.2 because my battery is dying too quickly and Apple said I should restore it to see if that fixes the problem, otherwise AppleCare will replace it for me.

Problem is restoring to 6.1.2. Obviously Apple is not signing this firmware anymore, I have tried iFaith, TinyUmbrella, RedSn0w.

:( Is there anything I can do?

You cannot. No way to restore/update an iP5 to any version but 6.1.3.
