I have an iPad 3 iOS5.1.1 jailbroken.
Now that iOS 7 (exactly 7.0.3) is on the Apple update servers, I want to know if I am able to update my iOS to 6.1.2 or not.

I downloaded the firmware of 6.1.2 and want to update to this except iOS 7.0.3.
Anytime I want to update it via iTunes, it wants to check it with Apple servers and obviously they say you should upgrade to 7.0.3.

Is there any way I can upgrade my iOS to 6.1.2?

    The blunt answer is, "No, you cannot upgrade to iOS 6.1.2." If it was an A4 device, you could save your SHSH blobs for iOS 5.1.1. You're out of luck for everything else. Commented Nov 14, 2013 at 21:45

    I would wait if I were you (if you can't part with your jailbreak tweaks). One of my iPhones is still on iOS 5.1.1 (jailbroken), and I use it just as much as my other iOS devices, so you can see how much I can relate to your dilemma (I have SHSH blobs coming out my ears, but I only use them on my development/testing iPod touch).
