Last week I had a bit of trouble with my iPhone 5 and had to restore to 6.1.4. This weekend I purchased a jailbroken iPhone 5 on eBay, and it will be arriving this week.
That phone is on 6.1.2. What steps do I need to do to make that phone my current phone? Is it just a matter of swapping out the sim card and restoring from a backup in iTunes? Will iTunes care that I am not on the latest firmware version when I activate? I want to make sure I don't screw anything up this time!

You can try editing the info.plist of your backup files collected via iTunes from Product Version 6.1.4 Build Version 10B329 to Product Version 6.1.2 Build Version 10B146... but I wouldn't recommend that except as a last-ditch effort.
