Exploit for iOS 6.1 to 5.1.1 Downgrade for A5 Devices Is Coming


While there is still time till the official iOS 6.1 evasi0n jailbreak release, you might like to downgrade iOS 6.1 to iOS 5.1.1 and we will tell you it should be possible soon. There is interesting information that can encourage Apple device users who have upgraded to the latest firmware presented by the Cupertino-based company this week and found it not so cool.
It has become very hard to downgrade from the newest operating system versions because Apple has implemented APTickets and SHSH blobs. For example, users of iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are unable to downgrade to previous older iOS versions they never had on their device.

Luckily there is Winocm developer who has introduced an exploit that is meant to help users to downgrade iOS 6.1 to iOS 5.1.1 on iPhone 4S with ease. Maybe you don’t even need to downgrade and are impatiently waiting for Sunday’s iOS 6 untethered jailbreak launch. Still, if you wish to try and get back to earlier versions of Apple firmware, follow this guide.
Also you must know that this exploit will downgrade only iOS version but not baseband. So if you are looking for downgrade to use previous unlocking tool you will failed. Better use the link to find out how to unlock iOS 6.1 baseband versions and then enjoy any firmware from Apple.

About Winocm Exploit to Downgrade iOS 6.1

This hacker isn’t as famous as other iOS developers. Still he has his own past history, as he worked on both Cydia tweaks and PS3 hacking. His exploit that makes it possible to downgrade newest Apple firmware also need you to have your SHSH blobs saved for iOS 5.1.1 as this is the firmware you are trying to get back to.
You are probably disappointed. As for us, we just really hope that his utility can get future development and improvement and Redsn0w or other jailbreaking tool integration. The method Winocm mentions is still in the development stage.
The news about it can be found on his Twitter blog. The only positive thing about this exploit is that it should allow iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users to downgrade iOS 6.1, while Apple doesn’t sign its iOS 5 system for Redsn0w downgrade. If you are still running iOS 6.0.1 you can downgrade it using Redsn0w.
