Thread: Just bought a new iPhone 4, but it's 4.1.. Can I downgrade?

  1. #1
    Default Just bought a new iPhone 4, but it's 4.1.. Can I downgrade?
    I was looking around and searched a bit and couldn't find anything about someone who bought the new one that already has the 4.1 with it installed when bought. My question is there a way around this and being able to downgrade from 4.1 to 4.0.1?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Nope sorry, you cannot downgrade without SHSH which you wouldn't have since it is new.

    Sorry to say that you can't downgrade and can't jailbreak your phone at the moment.but we all are waiting for a new mega jailbreak which is expected to arrive soon.

    Basically the answer is no. But some people have found that Cydia has older SHSH saved even though they never saved any. I'm not sure anybody knows why. Can't hurt to check - download TU. Oh and save 4.1 SHSH now, in case you accidentally upgrade to 4.2 when it comes out.

    but that really depends on what firmware is on it not just a new phone, there are some new phones with older firmware still.

    So many new iPhone owners, and most of them are new to forums as well. It isn't THEIR fault, but the mods COULD put a sticky up top that says SEARCH the forums before you ask.

    We have 10 or more new threads a day asking the same question.
    iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

    We could just ignore the repeat questions which would then force them to do a search, lol just kidding.

    Actually when I first came to MMi I didn't read stickies nor forum rules (come to think of it I still don't haha) but I got by and learned quick. I also by common sense did a search first before asking a question since I'd rather have an immediate answer to what I wanna know than wait for 1) someone to answer me or 2) someone to tell me to search first.

    Edit: I've created an unofficial and a tad unorganized guide on which phones and iPods are able to be jailbroken and unlocked. It just didn't make it to the sticky/guides section cuz I haven't had time to make it more official and good looking. It was a little bit back so it's not been updated for 4.1 but that's basically the same as being on 4.0.2 anyway. Perhaps if I cleaned up my post a bit it'll actually go into the sticky section.

    But for now, here it is:

    Only missing info on the post is being on 4.1 upgrades the baseband rendering all phones except 2G not unlockable.

    Just did a new post explaining some of these things. This together with Anniex423 post should be most of the info a new person needs.
