    What is the procedure for downgrading from iOS7? I know downgrades are certainly tricky on iOS devices, but understand it is possible?

    I'm on a 4th Gen iPad, and I'm really regretting the upgrade now.

    I'm not 100% certain but I think Apple is no longer signing iOS 6 making a downgrade impossible.

    Go to http://www.idownloadblog.com/download/ and download the firmware file for your device. Open up iTunes and connect your iPhone. If you're on Windows hold down shift and press restore or if your on a Mac hold down Alt and press restore, then select the firmware file you downloaded earlier and click ok. Then just wait for the restore process to finish.

    According to http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/SHSH they are still signing iOS 6.

    This worked a treat, thank you :)

    iOS 6 is definately quicker on the iPad 4
