There is no way to get to 6.1.2 now. If you updated or restored it will go to 6.1.3 and you will loose any chance of a jailbreak till IOS7 comes out and I bet it'll be worse still.
If your having problems I think you can just use the settings and restore to default in there and maybe that will help then you just re-jailbreak 5.1.1?? I haven't tried it but if I need to restore thats what I will try first.
When the jail break is done, it modifies the iPad's coding. This makes the reset function (in Settings) unusable on an iPad - guarantee that the only thing that will happen is the iPad will be unusable until you restore it. Yes, you can still use a re-restore on iOS 5.1.1 (if you,don't go to iOS 6.1.3) - but why go through the hassle?
Just wanted to remind - never use the Reset function. :)
To any members who discover a website that says it has a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3, there is no such thing. There is not and will never be a jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3. Any real jailbreak news for any version of iOS 6 will be added to the first post in this thread. Please do not post links to any sites purporting to offer such a jailbreak. Any such post is subject to deletion.
My mini is nagging me to update to 6.1.3 -- which, of course, I don't want to do.
Is there a way to A), tell it to stop nagging, and B), keep it from updating automatically (or by accident)?
Since this has a very narrow set of uses for me, I don't see any need ever to update.
SO I read all through this and Jailbroke my Ipad. Then I upgraded to 6.1.2 and re jailbroke it. I want to do a full rebuild on it because I am having weird issues. So if I do a backup within itunes first and then use PKG Backup for the Cydia backup, how do I do a restore and rebuild from scratch without having to upgrade to the 6.1.3 and lose the jailbreak?
You can't selectively restore on any iOS for any iPads. The only device that has limited selective restoration is the iPad 2 assuming you have iOS 4 and iOS 5 blobs, allowing you to downgrade from iOS 6 back to iOS 5 that you have blobs for. Your only options for the iPad 2 assuming you have blobs are to restore to the latest iOS, or downgrade to any iOS 5 that you have blobs for. For the iPad 3, 4 and Mini, your only restore option from iOS 6 is to 6.1.3
