After iTunes recognizing your phone hold the Shift key on a PC or ALT/Option button on a Mac. Click the “Restore iPhone”  button which will bring the option to choose the iOS6 .ipsw file from a pop up.  Brows and select the ipsw file which you have downloaded earlier for your iPhone or iPod touch. Then click “Restore”.

The restore process will begin once  iTunes will validate the IPSW firmware file. Wait the process to complete. It takes time. Once the process got completed, your device will be running iOS 6.1.3 or 6.1.4 as you opt.
