Previously, we have taught you how to install iOS 7 beta 1 on iPhone without a registered UDID. Whether you have installed iOS 7 beta using the official methods or otherwise, you are bound to run into plenty of bugs, performance issues and other whatnots. If you decide that iOS 7 is just not for you, you can easily downgrade to iOS 6, albeit with some limitations. Here's How to Downgrade From iOS 7 Beta 1 to iOS 6.x.x.
Before You Proceed:
- You can ONLY downgrade to the latest available iOS 6.x.x firmware. So that's iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.3 for the other supported devices.
- Make sure that you backup your iDevice via iTunes or iCloud.
- You can't use saved SHSH blobs of any A5+ devices, they're currently useless.
- NOTE: After you downgraded back to iOS 6.x.x, you'll be able to restore to iOS 6.x.x compatible backup as opposed to the iOS 7 backup. This is to prevent any compatibility issues.
Steps on How to Downgrade From iOS 7 Beta 1 to iOS 6.x.x:
- Download the appropriate iOS 6 firmware for your iOS device. Here's iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5, and iOS 6.1.3 for other devices.
- Connect your iDevice that's running iOS 7 to the computer.
- Launch the latest version of iTunes.
- Now you will have to place your device into DFU mode. Just follow the mini-guide below:
- Hold down Power (corner) button for 5 seconds.
- Without releasing the Power button, also hold down the Home (bottom center) button along with the Power button for 10 seconds.
- Without releasing the home button, stop holding down the power button for up to 15 seconds.
And that's it! This is how you downgrade from iOS 7 beta 1 to iOS 6, despite Apple's warning that you won't be able to do so. Just restore to your device from a backup and you are good to go. [via iClarified]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
