Hey guys!

I got an Iphone 4S with IOS 6.1.3 (baseband 3.4.03) and I now want to downgrade and jailbreak it. The original IOS used when I bought it was 6.0.1 and baseband 3.0.04!

So when I first plugged it into iTunes i updated it immediately to 6.1.3.....YAAAY :S this means the 6.1.2 update was never installed by me personally. Can I factory restore my Iphone to the version 6.1.2 by clicking the restore button in iTunes with the Option key and choose the downloaded ipsw file or do I have to restore it to 6.0.1 and then update manually to 6.1.2 to jailbreak my 4S? (how can I do this) Do I have to activate the Phone after restoring to factory settings?

MANY THANKS

You cannot downgrade or otherwise restore an iPhone 4S to anything but the latest version of iOS. You shouldn't have updated to 6.1.3 if you wanted to jailbreak -- I'm sorry, but there's nothing you can do at this point.
