    You can also try to boot into safe mode by holding down the up volume button (+) while the iPhone is booting up.

    Nope...i hadnt installed anythng on it lately! Jus had upgrades on few intsalled apps like Auxo...yea thats the only thng i remember!
    I tried everything, tried even deleting all the apps one by one from Mobile Substarte, Bt it jus never came out of loop!
    Had to restore it at the end, and even after restore it started crashing. Basically it never came out of loop! Apply screen used to come on, then for one second it used to get xtra bright like it was goin to wake up and nxt seconds light use to go dim with the apple sign still on and thats it!
    Took it to apple store today now they gonna send me new one, bt i guess it will be on 6.1.3

    Guys any idea if i can downgrade from 6.1.3?
    Any help will be highly appreciated!!

    Just hope that the replacement is not on 6.1.3. Other than that, nothing we can do to downgrade firmware on A5+ chipset, unfortunately... Good luck ...

    The same happen 2 me as well, but i could not get it 2 come on at all no matter what i did, n the end phone got updated to 6.1.3.....now i am sick i can not get my Jail break back......but i have another iPhone 5 with 6.1.2...my question is now that my phone is backed up with the 6.1.3, if i switch over 2 the new phone and restore with info from the old, will it bring the update it to 6.1.3.......Got the sim card out and put it n the iphone 5 was told it had 6.1.2 but i could not ck the version because it did not have a sim card, so i inserted my sim, and restore from my iCloud back up, when i ck the version it had 6.1.3.....now was he lying about the version being 6.1.2 or did my backup from iCloud put 6.1.3 on it.....

    Apple doesn't allow a restore of a newer backup on an older firmware device, thus, it did an OTA update to 6.1.3 and a restore.

    You may find some faults with the iPhone and bring it to an Apple store for service. Hopefully they have some on 6.1.2 in stock that they can swap it for you ... Good luck

    Jus dont press Restore...
    Leave it where it is! If u Restore u be on 6.1.3 doent mattr if u do it OTA or icloud!
    I was lucky my phone came with 6.0, i jus left it as it iz! Activated the phone without puttin it on itunes! Jailbroke it first thn syncd with itunes for apps, songz n vdeoz! Nevr bothrd about contacts, i can do that manually, my first priorty was to jailbreak!
    So if i was u i would never restore frm icloud...jus to b on da safe side!!
