Downgrade iOS 6.1.3 to iOS 6.1.2 using Snowbreeze

As we are all aware, there will be no official untethered iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. If you have upgraded and really want to jailbreak your device, you can if you have a pre A5 device. Anything newer cannot be downgraded or jailbroken so you will just have to wait it out until the next one comes along, most likely with iOS 7.
