How to Downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6 (including iOS 6.1.4, 6.1.3, 6.1.2)

If you still insist to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6, like iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3 for iPhone 4S, you can try the below method.

Difficulty leve Very easy
Time Required Around 3 minutes
Equipments Required A computer (Mac or PC) running the latest version of iTunes (iTunes 11.1), a USB cable, your iDevice, and the iOS 6 IPSW file

Note: A file with the IPSW file extension is an Apple Device Software Update file.

Your device will go dark and the downgrade will begin. When the installation completes, your device will restart to the old firmware and you will be walked through the usual iDevice setup process. If, in some rare case, you fail to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6 with this method, that's possibly because the iOS 6 IPSW file you download is not the correct one for your device. Search the Internet again to find the right iOS 6 IPSW file for your device and perform the same steps to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6.
