    Unhappy Trouble upgrading ipad mini from 6.0.2 to 6.1.2
    Hi! I have a new ipad mini currently on 6.0.2, clean, not jailbroken yet. I wanted to upgrade to 6.1.2 before jailbreaking, but when ****+update or shift+restoring using itunes i keep getting an error telling me that my firmware is not compatible. I also tried using tinyumbrella but still getting the same error. Am i doing something wrong or is there something peculiar about upgrading on the ipad mini that i am not aware of? please advise! Thanks in advance! =)

    you cant update because Apple is not "signing" 6.1.2 anymore

    you can only update to the latest firmware that Apple is signing, which is 6.1.3

    you cannot go to 6.1.2 by any other means

    however, if you go to 6.1.3, there is no jailbreak

    SO, I suggest you stay on 6.0.2 and use evasi0n to jailbreak

    yes, you must be extremely careful with A5(x) devices, because if anything happens, you cant go back, you can only go forward

    elaborate more than just "doesn't even work anymore"

    what errors, what device you're using it on, etc.?
