I have been searching all over for answers on this but with no luck!
But, I did stumble across this... iPhone 5 Help - Home
It looks very much of a scam to me, they are selling software that claim to downgrade iPhone 5 to iOS 5
I am no expert or neither technical minded. My first thoughts when I did find this site, the larger screen resolution? the A6 processor that was designed for iOS 6? Nahh, how would that work with an old firmware? That would be like buying a brand new Windows 7 PC and downgrading it to Windows XP, yea the iPhone may boot iOS 5 like the PC would boot XP. But surely it would not be a simple job and you would be forever fighting with hardware compatibility issues?
Curiosity did get the better of me, so I thought I would ask what the experts think?
Btw, anyone herd any further news about progress on the jailbreak side?

Iphone 5 comes OTB with IOS 6.0 and there isn't any IOS 5.xx for it.
