I am currently running a redsn0w jailbreak on a 5.1.1 ipod 4g. How would I go about taking off the jailbreak, updating to 6.1.3, downgrading to 6.1.2, rejailbreaking then restoring from back up? Thanks!

if you dont, then you have to upgrade to iOS 6.1.3

which isn't horrible, as their is a semitethered jailbreak for 6.1.3 on the ipod 4g

I don't have SHSH but I can get it. Also how does semitethered work on jailbreak

You can't "get it" now, that's not how it works. If you didn't save 6.1.2 blobs before March 19, you're too late.

Check all blobs that you have you can only upgrade /downgrade to ios versions with blobs saved use ifaith to check blobs and fetch it

semi tether is that you can boot up your phone without having to tether it to your computer, however some apps (such as Cydia, Mail, Safari and maybe a few others) will not work (I know Phone and Messages DO work for a fact) . Once you boot it up tethered, it will act exactly like an untethered JB (until you reboot or power down your phone), and then you'll have to boot it up tethered again. I don't believe any tweaks work in semi tethered state, however I think that most themes DO work.

You can't because the SHSH blobs for 6.0-6.1.2 saved on Cydia have gotten corrupt. If you have them saved locally then you can use them, I think.
