    Apple have annoyingly started to refer to the different iPad models by model reference number now, rather than by their radio capability, so if could be that our firmware links are in the wrong order, if you used my thread. Since I don't have an iPad Mini myself, it is really hard to tell.

    Czar, please go to Settings > General > About > Legal > Regulatory, and tell us which Model Number you have for your GSM device. I'll then work out if our download thread has an error.

    If it is similar to the iPhone5, then the "World" (non-USA) GSM phones are actually CDMA + GSM combined phones. Makes things very confusing... Grrrr.

    I tried updating my IPad 3 to the IOS 6.1 and it said something simular, I just tried it again and it worked fine. I figure it's just my wifi at home is not so good.
