    Default Downgrade ios 7
    So currently I am trying to downgrade my iPhone 4 CDMA on iOS 7. I have my 6.1.3 blobs saved, but my 6.0 6.1 6.1.2 havent saved. I heard its possible and I did the iFaith method. Everything was sucessful except when I did a SHIFT + restore on itunes. I got a error 11 message. Everywhere I read, it said to go into C:/WINDOW/System32/Drivers/Etc and go into the hosts file and delete the gs.apple.com blah blah blah.. I did that and keep getting the same error message. What should I do? I REALLY wanna get rid of iOS 7 and be back to jailbreaking

    If iTunes is updated I don't think it will work ya have to git a lower version of iTunes.

    Try using redsn0w's "Recovery Fix" (Extras -> Recovery Fix) after selecting an iOS 6.0 IPSW in redsn0w (Extras -> Select IPSW). Hopefully that'll get you past the recovery screen.

    Yes, it must be a 6.0 one. Redsn0w doesn't work all that well with anything newer. Here's a quick link to the correct IPSW.

    EDIT: You're sure it's an iPhone 4 and not a 4S?

    Jail breaking is ONLY FOR THE BOLD GEEK as there are many ways to mess up your iPhone iPad itouch. Have done that and resorted to trading the Idevice in while under warrantee to apple store. You can do it but the subtle instructions are hard. As example tried to jbreak an itouch 2 but found if you have the MCxxxx model you can not do it. You need the MBxxxx model. How subtle a difference.

    Yes I have an iPhone 4 CDMA. I've been jailbreaking since ios 5. I only have my 6.1.3 shsh blobs because I got a brand new phone and all my blobs prior worked only for my old iphone 4. I've messed up my iphone only once while jailbreaking but a solution was easy to find..
    Anyways, I do not like ios 7 and an ios 7 jailbreak seems too far away.

    I get how to downgrade, request blobs from ifaith, build them with a custom ispw, blah blah blah.. the only problem I have right now is getting past the iTunes error 11. I've tried on both my windows computer and my mac and nothings worked.....

    Did you verify with iFaith that the 6.1.3 SHSH are valid?
    You may also want to try an even older iTunes version, 11.0.2 or lower I would say.

    I had to uninstall Quicktime, Bonjour and other stuff that comes with the iTunes download and go into the Music/iTunes folder and then the recent library back ups and copy the most recent back up and paste into the /Music/iTunes folder and rename it "iTuneslibrary.itl"
