From the above FAQ

Instructions for iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPad 2, iPad 3rd generation, iPad 4th generation, iPad Mini, iPad Mini 2, iPad Air, or iPod touch 5th generation restoring to iOS 6.x

If you have one of these devices on iOS 7.x, it is only possible to restore to iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 while Apple is still "signing" those iOS versions, and Apple usually stops signing older versions very quickly after publicly releasing a new version.

How would i go about doing that? Could you give me some input please? New to jailbreaking. Much appreciated.

What the FAQ means is that with an iPad Mini, there is no possible way to go back to 6.1. End of story.

Given time BTC tweak from big boss more that likely will get updated for ios 7 then you can use a mouse. Email developer to try and find out if that is going to happen
