Hacker Demonstrates Downgrade of iOS 9.3.5 to iOS 9.3.2? [Video]

Posted by · 13624 views · Translate

A hacker known as tihmstar has allegedly demonstrated a downgrade of iOS 9.3.5 to iOS 9.3.2. It has not been possible to downgrade iOS firmware for quite some time. A working method would potentially allow all users to get to a jailbreakable firmware version.

In a video posted to YouTube, tihmstar demos 'prometheus', an upcoming tool which supports downgrading 64bit devices if APTicket (shsh files) are saved and certain other conditions are met.

The video's description says, "It is currently unknown what conditions have to be met to be eligible for downgrade without jailbreak."

On Twitter tihmstar notes, "A different method does exist, but is in development at the moment, so stay tuned and let me figure out how you can use your saved blobs."

At this point, it's unclear if the downgrade tool is legitimate but you can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Ah. You are just scratching the history. I remember when Redsn0w was able to let you downgrade your current iOS firmware to get back the iOS jailbreak

Ultimate hack is to impersonate Apple's signing server. Then they can sign every version of iOS and allow one to downgrade to any iOS version.

I have to agree people who JB these devices a very smart people. Many clearly do not get enough credit for there difficult work and time they spend doing this . Many are just claimed to be low life hackers and a detrament to the the IOS. Many of the ideas in current versions where available years Before in some cases. These ideas and improved iOS versions get absolutely no credit most of the time. JB was determined legal , not only that a company in different country was using there tools to hack people.

I think your phone has to currently be on iOS 9.3.2 cause it looks like it's grabbing the current signing info from the device in restore mode, thats how it has been before in iOS 8 and so forth, so if you've never jailbroken and on iOS 9.3.5, I don't think you'll be able to downgrade to 9.3.2, but if your currently on iOS 9.3.2 or 9.3.3 maybe, you'll be able to do a full dfu restore to that same version your currently on. Maybe unless they've truly figured out a glitch in the matrix
