Thread: iPhone 5 restore 6.0.1?
12-21-2012, 12:49 PM #1iPhone 5 restore 6.0.1?
I'm currently in ios 6.0.1 on my iphone 5, I need to restore and set up as new iphone as my backup from my old i4s is causing battery drain. ios 6.0.2 has been released so can I still restore without having to upgrade? I'm not sure if apple are still signing 6.0.1 for iphone 5 so wonder if anyone could help me, I really don't want to upgrade.
If it's not possible, what other options do I have, resetting all content and settings maybe? or does that not actually get rid of everything like an iTunes restore does?

here (if you have an A1428 model phone, use the 5,1 IPSW; A1429 model, use the 5,2), and Shift (Windows) or Option (OS X) + Restore in iTunes, navigating to that IPSW you just downloaded.
You can also "Erase All Contents and Settings" in Settings (Settings -> General -> Reset), as that will effectively erase your phone and allow you to set it up as new without having to restore via iTunes. I wouldn't recommend that as your first choice, rather, only as a last resort type of thing.
