    It appears that apple is no longer allowing the 6.1.2 ipsw to be installed. I know that 6.1.3 will work, but it can't be jail broken. Is there a way to install the ipsw without using iTunes... Or can I trick iTunes into not verifying the package?

    Thanks

    I'm on 5.1.1 baseband 2.0.12... This also raises another question for me, do I have to persive the baseband anymore or just take the one with the update. I plan to unlock using a Gevey SIM. I have a Verizon phone that I use on T-mobile.

    Be better off with a IMEI unlock but that's up to you.

    Once ya go to iOS 6 you won't be able to downgrade to 5.0 and if ya update you will have to go to 6.1.3 and there is no jailbreak for that phone on that firmware.

    How does the IMEI unlock work? Can I use a US T-mobile SIM on my Verizon phone?

    Also I think the phone has a bad ESN, is there a way I can get the unlock outside of Verizon?

    First point: no. Verizon GSM-slot unlocks (both through them directly, and through third-party services) are for all non-American carriers.

    Second point: You can both clean the ESN/MEID and get the (non-USA) unlock via a third party, sometimes accomplishing both in one fell swoop. I'd recommend searching for Chronic Unlocks (of Chronic Dev-Team). I have to warn you though, these services tend to run a bit on the expensive side.
