Thread: 3.0 downgrade

  1. #1
    Default 3.0 downgrade
    Ive upgrades to 3.0 but ive decided that i dont really like it.
    my phone was a 2.2.1 jb evertything went ok.
    I'm wanting to go back to 2.2.1 but i just get errors either 20 or 1600.
    but before i get this error i get a windows popup saying ive go i high speed device in a non high speed port also
    It will let me redo 3.9 without any problems or the high speed message
    ive also put itunes on other computer that has never had it and did the same as above
    ive used itunes 8.2 and 7.7 that i found from searching here
    anyone have a good idea thanks

    Use iTunes 8.1, put it into DFU mode and shift+Restore to 2.2.1

    From what i've read.... or at least some people have said you can't downgrade from 3.0 GM/Final. I am starting to feel like this is true... which SUCKS cause I won't have access to an AT&T sim till tomorrow. (I am stuck at the slide for emergency screen.)

    If I were you, I will wait till 3.0 Jailbreak comes out. Downgrading back to 2.2.1, so far I heard no successful on OS 3.0 and I heard it worked on betas. As well, we wait till tomorrow. I am going through your way also but it was a accident. I press enter on carrier status everytime I plug in my phone and it upgraded my phone for me.. ><
    I am stuck and locked!

    Ya i don't think we are going to get anywhere on this. I'm going to install 3.0 again and hope i have a restore file that will work.

    I just hope with the jb we can downgrade. I really dont like 3.0 that much. I might if i give it more time but i played with the betas and 2.2.1 just seems way better. im on 2g ifone so i cant get some of the better features anyways

    AHA! I figured it out... I went to my other PC which doesn't have and never has been updated to iTunes 8.2 and it let me put my phone in DFU and then downgrade right back to 2.2.1~!

    No matter what you do it won't allow you to downgrade from 3.0 GM to any OS directly ... do it this way ..

    Jailbreak your OS 3.0 GM using QuickPwn 3.0 Beta 5 + OS 3.0 Beta 5 (7a312g) and will put it into DFU Mode (Pink Color) after jailbreak ... when in DFU mode (Pink) then downgrade to Beta 2 0r 3 ... iTunes will tell you its expired already just ignore the message ... then you can downgrade and restore to 2.2.1 ... an error will comes out error 1013 just ignor the error 1013 ... Close Itunes and turn off your iPhone ... open QuickPwn 2.2.5-2 and connect your iPhone (OFF Mode) then click OK from the first message of QuickPwn and do nothing on QuickPwn ... Press the power switch of Iphone for at least 2 seconds then logo of apple when come out and QuickPwn will remove the DFU of your iPhone and instead Emergency Call will comes out then you can now activate it in iTunes ...

    If you want to downgrade to Beta 5 ... from DFU mode (pink color) after jailbreak from OS 3.0 GM just restore beta 5 (7a312g) and thats it .... your Beta 5 is on your iPhone
