Thread: Damn 3.1, how do I downgrade?

    Default Damn 3.1, how do I downgrade?
    Hey, now i know everyone said DONT UPGRADE!!! but, seeing as my iphone was completely stuck in a loop of dfu mode then powering off then respringing, etc, so I had to restore thru iTunes.

    Now, I'm wondering how I can downgrade from 3.1 to 3.0 (or even pre 3.0). I have tried just using iTunes with my phone dfu mode, but when it goes to restore, once it gets up to "preparing iphone for restore" it just hangs and stops.

    Anyone been able to downgrade?

    Also, i've tried using xcode and various older editions of iTunes, but nothing has worked.

    Thanks in advance

    yes, you can sometimes jailbreak 3.1 with redsn0w. still, when you upgrade, you will lose the abilty to unlock forever maybe.

    you downgraded your iphone 3GS?
    as far as I understood you you just pointed redsn0w to the 3.0 firmware - but that doesn't downgrade your iphone!

    from what i have gathered you need to open itunes... put in dfu mode... hold shift click restore... choose the proper restore, (2.0,2.2.1,3.0,3.01,etc...) after that it should prompt you with an error code (that code i don't remember) after that it should be good... go into redsn0w and finish jailbreak/unlock as usual w/o icy

    might have to use itunes 8.0 or older... i have used 8.0 and downgrade several 3g's 3gs's and plenty of 2g's
