    You can't restore it and keep the jailbreak. Only thing I can think off is reset all settings

    Reset all settings will still result in a em restore to 6.1.3. When ya do that with a jailbroken iPhone bad things normally happen

    Damn, I have to ask....... I know that when jailbroken, erase all content and settings is fatal, but not only reset all settings, or ????

    This will only reset his settings and not cause any damage to the jailbreak.

    It will not remove any of his data either.

    If you want to remove your personal info, you must do it manually to retain the JB.

    Can't he go back to 5.1.1 if he has the blobs and stitches a custom firmware through redsn0w?

    Except for some iPads 2 with iOS 4 and 5 SHSHs, none of the A5+ devices can upgrade/downgrade to any firmwares that is not sign by Apple. As of now, there is no bootrom exploit for them until someone comes up with one ... 8-((
