I have an iPhone 4 (3,2) and I had iOS 7.1.2, but I wanted to go back to iOS 6, I downloaded someone else's blobs and used iFaith to sign iOS 6.1.3 with those blobs. And then I restored (in pwnd dfu) using an old version of iTunes (10.0.0 I think) to that custom signed iOS 6.1.3. Then I had to 'just boot' it with redsn0w, but I get an error: 'exploit failed'. This happens after 'exploiting with limera1n'. Yes, I did select the ipsw (6.0) in redsn0w before just booting. Can someone help me please?

Blobs are device specific. You cannot use someone else's blobs for your device.

It is a tethered downgrade, so it is possible. I already did this before so I know for 100% sure, but it was a long time ago and later I updated to iOS 7.

No, you can't.
