Default Updating iPhone

I've been researching but it might be easier to just ask here.

I having an iPhone 4s with iOS 5.1.1. I want to update to iOS 6.1.2. Apple wants me to update to iOS 6.1.3 but I do not want to. I like being able to jailbreak and I got apps in Cydia that I have purchased. Anyone know a way to update to 6.1.2 instead of 6.1.3?

Apparently you can't, Only iPhone 4 and down can downgrade firmware Is it possible to install iOS 6.1.2 now that 6.1.3 is out already - SiNfuL iPhone

Yes I think you can upgrade to 6.1.2, but you have to download the firmware version you want (it's about 900MB) specifically for iPhone 4s. After you download it, go to iTunes and connect your phone, then, while holding "SHIFT" on your keyboard, click on the restore button. You can then browse for the firmware file that you want to upgrade to.

BK is right, I can't. I can download the file but iTunes will not let me use it because it calls home to activate the install.

Otherwise you'll need to 3rd party tools in order to do this.

It looks like there is a 6.1.3 jailbreak already out there. Why not go ahead and update then jailbreak again?

There doesn't appear to be a jailbreak for 6.1.3 on the iPhone 4s.

There is another tool you can use to push a specific update to it, let me see if I can track it down

I think you can use Tiny Umbrella, however it's been a while so I'm not sure.
