I had trusted that Apple's update would bring me more features and functionality. I installed the 1.1.1 security update. Several web applications now are unusable, and Apple clearly is refusing to allow 3rd-party applications.
When i use the restore process to back out the update, I try to restore using either ALT or SHIFT keys and clicking on RESTORE, but nothing ever prompts me for the restore file. And after going thru the whole process 4 times, I still can only restore the 1.1.1 update again.
Am I doing something wrong?
Hopefully my windows Vista O.S. isn't gonna prevent me from backing out this update.
I do have windows Vista, hopefully this won't prevent me from effectively restoring my iPhone.

Thanks for your response... well, yes that's what I thought I did. But now that you confirm it works with SHIFT, I will try again. Am I supposed to press SHIFT-Restore and wait, or should a browser window pop up right away??

You will get a pop up instantly.

Ok, I am finally trying the downgrade process again.
Ok, holding the SHIFT then pressing RESTORE twice brings up the

Ok, assuming I am okay, I continue the instructions... trying to install AppTapp also fails.
