I am trying to downgrade my iPod touch 4G from 6.1.3 to 6.1.2 or 6.0.1(I do have blobs) but when using redsnow to restore with a custom ipsw, it does everything but stays forever in "Waiting for device" and the iPod stays with a boot screen.

Be patient, if oftentimes took a long time for me as well. If it never completes, I've hard rebooted and started over in the past. You can give that a shot.
