Uninstall your current firmware and replace it with an older version of it, the manufactors site will have an archive of firmware that dates back incase newer firmware isnt compatible with your desktop setup.

hope this helps.

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.

My old ipod touch will not let me change its date and time settings. also, when i press the top button the screen goes white and after a few seconds it freezes. i have tried reseting it a million times....


if u have downloaded any music of limewire or a torrent u could have downloaded a "infected" file so u need to update your firmware because it is probably "buggy" so it needs to be replaced.

if u dont want to update to a newer version AKA, 1.1.5,2.1.1 and 2.2.1 then u need to downgrade by downloading a firmware from a clean website and then when u go to refresh u have to do this.

1) download new firmware.

2) plug ipod into comp.

3) push and HOLD SHIFT click RESTORE.

4) a menu will pop up and then it will ask u to find the downloaded firmware hopefully u downloaded it to desktop and click the downloaded firmware and click OK.

5) it will restore and it will say restoring new firmware. so on and so forth..

Tarantula doesn work after installing new firmware


there seems to be alot of firmware issues with alot of razors products at the moment, use another keyboard for the minute and navigate to their site, downgrade your firmware to the one that worked. or alternatively restore your computer to a restore date that occured before you installed the new firmware/drivers.

hope this helps

My ps3 wont play my new games anymore after my latest system update when i went online. these games were playing b4 and play on other ps3s and all other games play still no prob. how can i reset my os...


you need to find the firmware you had before the update and downgrade it again, you can perform the downgrade using a cd with firmware on it, make sure you have a look on the sony website for instructions on performing a manual upgrade (should be the same process as downgrade)
