I have an iPhone 4S, CDMA version, iOS 6.1 jailbroken. Therefore no real need to upgrade at the moment. However my fiance's iPhone 4, I have heard, could benefit from an upgrade to iOS 6.1.2 from the iOS 5 she is currently running (jailbroken with absynthe). I was going to do this today- then I found out iOS 6.1.3 was been released, which is not able to be jailbroken. Is she stuck or can she upgrade to 6.1.2 somehow still and use evasions jailbreak?

Chances are you are stuck. Hopefully they will release a 6.1.3 jailbreak soon. – bassplayer7 Mar 19 '13 at 23:19
It's not much of a stuck, though. Unless you need a fix for the Exchange bug, you're fine sitting at 6.1.2. – Zo219 Mar 20 '13 at 1:54
@Zo219, I think you might have mis-read the original question. The original poster has iOS 5, so the two options are: stay at iOS5 (jailbroken), or upgrade to 6.1.3 (not jailbroken). Staying at 6.1.2 is not an option. – D.W. May 5 '13 at 3:18

you can download ipsw file for 6.1.2. apparantly there is a way to do this for iphone4 but newer hardware will not allow it.

How should the asker proceed once he/she has downloaded the ipsw file? – patrix Jul 15 '13 at 6:59
