iH8sn0w Finds Way To Downgrade A5 Devices! [iPhone 4S, iPad]

Posted by · 60139 views · Translate

iH8sn0w, developer of sn0wbreeze and iFaith, has found a way to downgrade the firmware on A5 devices.

Using saved SHSH blobs, iH8sn0w was able to downgrade his A5 iPad 2 from iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0.1. He says his method will also work with the A5X processor once firmware updates are released for the new iPad. That means that it's possible to restore to any firmware you want on A5 devices, as long as you have the SHSH blobs saved.

This is great news for those with the iPhone 4S and newer iPads. As it stands now, if you have to restore for any reason, you will be forced to upgrade to the latest firmware. This could leave you without the ability to jailbreak for some time.

Found a loophole in Apple's apticket system. Restored my iPad 2 to 5.0.1 from 5.1. Works on all A5 devices. :)

A5X devices will work too once Apple pushes a new firmware for it.

first, how about jailbreaking ios 5.1. when are they going to release it. or are they just for show to increase sales of the new ipad.

Of course, downgrading is pointless. Why would anyone want to downgrande to 5.0.1 once 5.1 is jailbroken. You should concentrate your efforts on jailbreaking, not in downgranding. One the jailbreak is realesed, the time you wasted in founding a way to downgrade will be trash.

People need unlocks for many different reasons. Also not all of us are underage children whose parents buy IPhones for them.WTF
