Thread: Backup HELP!!!

    Default Backup HELP!!!
    Hey guys,

    My iPhone 3G was running 4.2.1 jailbroken. I backed it up and downgraded to 3.1.3 and jailbroke it. Got to the home screen on the phone (not using it as my main phone, so I don't need activation) with RecBoot, but I can't restore to the backup. Error: "The backup "Derek's iPhone" can't be restored to this iPhone because the software is too old. To restore the iPhone from this backup, you must first set up the iPhone as new and restore it to the latest software version."

    How can I bypass this? I need to restore to that backup. I have Cydia installed, is there an app that could temporarily spoof 4.2.1 so iTunes would stop giving me crap about it or something?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks Guys!

    Derek

    If you've downgraded you won't be able to restore a backup. Apps that work on 4.xx won't work on 3.xx.

    Even if it could be spoofed I really wouldn't want to try it.

    Set up as new and synch .

    In reply to my own question (which I am answering for the good of the group), there is actually a way to change the backup. You have to find the Backups folder on your PC/Mac and go to Info.plist and open it in Notepad. Change the <key>Source Version</key> (I think that's the right string) to what ever version you downgraded to. Save and restart iTunes and it won't give you any problems.

    Without knowing what device you have, what FW you are on , what you are trying to downgrade to and if you have your blobs it is difficult to help.
