    It won't work because your 3.1.2 SHSH isn't stored. Each SHSH is device and firmware version specific, meaning the SHSH you have stored will allow your device to be restored to 3.1.3 only.

    If you don't need to unlock the phone, you should just restore to 3.1.3 and jailbreak with Spirit.

    If you do need to unlock, you can use this method of restore to 3.1.3 without updating the baseband (this will work whether the phone has the old or the new bootrom).

    If you need to pull data off the phone before restoring, you can take a look at the blog of msft.guy. It's a somewhat complicated process so think about whether there's something on your phone that you absolutely must not lose. If there's not, I wouldn't bother with it.
