How To: Downgrade iPhone OS v4.0.2 to v4.0.1


Now iPhone Dev team has confirmed that they will not be releasing any jailbreaks for iPhone OS v4.0.2. Now this is a bad news for all the people who have accidentally upgraded their OS version to 4.0.2.
But there is way by which we can downgrade our OS version to the previous version. ie., 4.0.1 for which jailbreak is still available.
This step by step guide will show you how to downgrade your iPhone
iOS 4.0.2 to iOS 4.0.1. These steps are pretty simple but there is one major requirement: you must have your SHSH files saved on Saurik's server. There is absolutely no way around it. If you don't have your SHSH, you won't be able to downgrade your iPhone.
In this tutorial, we will see how to downgrade the iPhone from 4.0.2 to 4.0.1 but the steps are the same if you want to downgrade to iOS 4 or even 3.1.3.
There are several methods used to downgrade the iPhone. We will learn the method that uses TinyUmbrella. No file editing will be necessary.
How to Downgrade from iOS 4.0.2 to 4.0.1Step 1: Let's download your SHSH blobs from Saurik's server to your computer. To do so, download TinyUmbrella(http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/) and plug your iPhone in. Select the "Advanced Options" box. Also select the firmware version to which you wish to downgrade. Finally, select "Cydia" under "Request From". Then hit "Save My SHSH". This will grab your SHSH files from Saurik's servers and save them on your computer.
Step 2: Download the firmware to which you wish to downgrade to from our iPhone downloads section. Save it to your desktop.
Step 3: Put your iPhone in DFU Mode. To do so, launch iTunes and plug your iPhone in. Press and hold the Home and Power button together for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the Power button while still holding the Home button until iTunes pops up and says it has found an iPhone in recovery Mode.
Step 4: Run TinyUmbrellaand click the "Display SHSHs" button to make sure your SHSH blobs were downloaded to your computer. Once done, click "Start TSS Server".
Step 5: Now we're going to restore to the firmware you want. To do so, launch iTunes and plug your iPhone in. Hold to SHIFT key (Windows only) or ALT/Option key (Mac only) while clicking on Restore. Make sure you hold the key while clicking Restore. A window will open. Simply select the firmware you downloaded in step 2.
Step 6: Your iPhone will start the restore process. You will most likely get several errors (error 1011, 1013, and 1015) but that's ok, don't worry about those.
Step 7: Finally, we need to get your iPhone out of recovery mode. To do so, simply click "Kick Device Out of Recovery" in TinyUmbrella.
Done!
You should now be back on a previous iOS, giving you the ability to jailbreak and unlock.

I would like to downgrade firmware on iPhone 3G from 4.0 to 3.1.1 Please help


There is no 3.1.1 firmware version available for the iPhone 3G. 3.1.1 is only for ipod touches. To downgrade to 3.1.2 (http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/firmware/6/iphone-3g-3-1-2-32353/) or 3.1 (http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/firmware/6/iphone-3g-3-1-32183/), download from either of the provided links, go into iTunes and to your iPhone tab, shift+click on restore for windows, or alt+click restore on mac, navigate to the downloaded file, and open it. Your phone will restore to the downloaded firmware.

That is DFU mode. It's there for software upgrading/downgrading. If you can't get out of this mode, reloading the firmware from Itunes will release it.

Open up Itunes.
Connect your IPhone.
Select your IPhone in the left window frame.
Press the "Check for Updates" button located in the summary frame.
Click "Download and Install."
Don't disconnect it while it's doing it's thing.

Once it finishes you will be out of DFU mode.

Hope this helps,
BReady

Contact apple and say you tried to downgrade your firmware but you downloaded the firmware from a internet site because iTunes wouldent download.
The error is in the CPU can be fixed by going into DFU mode and restoring .

Iphone not detected in itunes8.2.0


Hi, welcome to fixya! I've read a lot of blogs about itunes 8.2 which is the latest version of itunes. The problem is when you update your iphone firmware and when it restarted your iPhone will be locked up, so beware of that. Why don't you uninstall your updated iTunes and install the 7.6 version and run the process. If still nothing detected, if you are using PC computers transfer your USB connection at the back of your CPU, cause front and back connection has a power speed difference. Try it first before downgrading your iTunes to a 7.6 version.

This is how really people downgrade from firmware 2.0 to 1.1.4 on an First Generation iphone. all other videos just show what you have to do if you use a touch or if you have a at&t sim. Now dont forget that the extra steps are just for people that have the iphone with t-mobile.
Before you start make sure your phone is not on DFU or restore mode... and Itunes has detected your iphone...
You need to have an ATT SIM Card from an active phone for downgrade (it doesn't have to be yours)

1) download link.
http://www.filehippo.com/download_itu...
http://download.ziphone.org/
http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/down...
the next file is only is you have t-mobile.
http://www.mediafire.com/?oxyhnldjm1g


2)Uninstall itunes

3)Install the itunes that was downloaded from link

4)Go to start menu, my music, itunes. change the name of a file called iTunes Library.itl to iTunes Library.itl9

5)open itunes, make sure phone is detected by Itunes and restore iphone by press down SHIFT , clicking RESTORE bottom at the same time, and select the file that what download that should say "iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore"

6)After the restoration, an error number '1015' may come up, that okay its part of the downgrade. After downgrade is done, ur phone should be on recovery mode

7)Open ziphone from your desktop and click the "do all button".. it will take like 5 minutes if if takes more than ten minutes go back and start from step 1. After this process is done your phone should be unlock.

8) If you are a at&t customer then your done. but if u have TMOBILE follow the next steps

9) Close all applications; (iphone and ziphone). Click on the file that was download that say "KiPhone" unzip it and start the app. that says this "ZiPhoneGUI - patched by kIREmK". once open you need make sure you select "downgrade baseband" and "debug boot" and then just click start. THis process may take several minutes.

10) After Kiphone has finished now you have to redo steps 5-7.

11)now this is for both at&t and t-mobile user go back to start menu, my music, itunes and rename the file that u changed in step 4 back to iTunes Library.itl
