    Default Updated to 6.1 without Dev account
    Hey Guys,

    I didn't know you couldn't update to 6.1 without a Dev account.

    Im stuck on the activation screen and don't know what to do?

    Can I downgrade back to 6.0.1? Any advice would really help.

    Thanks!

    I tried that I think? Can you give me some more insight please?

    If can you help me, I would truly be grateful. I have tried to put the iphone 5 into recovery mode with Tiny Umbrella and have tried to restore back to 6.0.1 and it says not correct build after trying to restore.

    I keep getting this device isn't eligible for requested build.

    Download the 6.0.1 ipsw file.. then press SHIFT + RESTORE if youre on a PC (Option + Restore if youre on a MAC), select the ipsw you just downloaded and let it do its work to downgrade to 6.0.1
