    Default Upgrade to an earlier firmware?
    My new iPhone 5 just delivered today. I just activated it and it's on iOS 6.0.1. It's a pretty unlucky time to get delivered as I know 6.1.3 just came out yesterday lol. Is it possible to upgrade from 6.0.1 to 6.1.2 instead of 6.1.3? I know that 6.1.3 is not jailbreakable at this point, but I do want the updates/fixes from 6.0.1 to 6.1.2.
    Thanks.

    No, you can't on a iPhone 5. Just stay at 6.0.1 if you want to jailbreak.

    I know in the iPhone 3G/3GS/4 days I could download the firmware files for earlier firmwares and install it by using the restore from backup, so I'm guessing Apple removed that ability in newer iPhones right?

    3G/3GS/4 can go to any firmware as long as you have the shsh for that firmware for your device. iPhone 4S/5 cannot. They can only restore to whatever firmware apple is currently signing, which is 6.1.3 right now.

    More than likely next jailbreak will be iOS 7.
