Step 1:

Before you start the jailbreak process on your iPhone 5 (and other devices), you'll need to backup your SHSH blobs for your iOS 6.

It's important to save these files because then you'll be able to downgrade back to iOS 6.1 if newer firmware is released or an error happens during the jailbreak process.

If you don't save the SHSH blobs, there will be no way to get back to your original firmware.

To backup your SHSH blobs:

    Download TinyUmbrella and run the app.
    Connect your device and then select it from the upper left-hand corner of TinyUmbrella.
    Click on the Advanced tab and uncheck the following: Save ALL Available SHSH and Request SHSH From Cydia.

Step 2:

Click on Save SHSH and your blob should be saved onto your computer. It will show up under Log if it is successful.

Now that your SHSH blobs are saved, you'll need to do a few more things before you start the jailbreak

    A computer, running Windows (XP minimum), Mac OS X (10.5 minimum) or Linux (x86 / x86_64).
    Backup your device to iTunes (to save apps, photos, etc.).
    Disable the lock passcode (it won't allow you to jailbreak the device with it).
