Smile I just downgraded iPhone 5 back to 6.0.1!

Ok idk how I did it, but I downgraded from 6.0.2 back to 6.0.1. I had blobs but I didnt think it was compatible yet? I'm just sooo happy now that I could downgrade back to 6.0.1 now if only I could restore to 6.0....

Uhhh...6.0.1 is the same as 6.0.2
I don't get it.
6.0.2 has fixed the WiFi bug, that's it ! The UI is the same, no major changes.

6.0.2 and 6.0.1 are different. There may never be a jailbreak for 6.0.2 but probably for 6.0.1.....

Its not a big deal cause Apple is probably still signing 6.0.1 for the i5.
When they stop this will not be possible any longer.

Believe what you want but its common sense and that's how the shsh blobs work for the iphone for years.
If apple still releases/signs the firmware version then you can downgrade without any hacks or prior replay shsh blobs.
Read up on it more here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHSH_blob
http://www.saurik.com/id/12
You didnt invent or discovered something that is not well known and there already.

I hope so. We need a Jailbreak badly at this point.

Well maybe I should have added an "if any" but I believe there will be one.

It's not like you discovered something radical. Your downgrade didn't really help you at all, in fact you downgraded to a worse version. There is currently no benefit to what you did. There is no jailbreak out to the public for any version of iOS6 so it doesn't matter what you downgrade to.

6.0.2 killed my cellular data connection even after a restore. I would have to cycle airplane mode several times a day to get cellular data when leaving wifi. I downgraded to 6.0.1 where I didn't have these issues. In my opinion 6.0.1 is better.

Did you experience the same problem as him? If not, there really is no need to downgrade "just because you can".

Yes. I had bad battery and my data dropped more often and my phone would say no sim every once in a while...

If you had stated that at the very beginning as the reason you were excited to downgrade, a lot of this criticism would have been avoided I think.
