    Hi,

    I'm running 9.3.1 on my iPhone 4S.

    I want to try to downgrade back to ios 6 (last one). I know that is possible but in my case can I do that? Because I don't have JB at my phone.

    Cheers.

    Yes, that's one of the catches. You have to be jailbroken. So, you're waiting until there is a jailbreak for your firmware version. The other is that (I may be wrong on this) you need to have saved 6.x blobs in order to downgrade specifically to that version. Otherwise it's 8.4.1.

    I don't mean to come off wrong, but I highly doubt you have blobs saved. They're required to pull off the downgrade. I have a few 4S's and wish I would have saved at least one when we were doing things that way. Curious though, the desire to get back to 6 is common with 4S users. I had great luck with my jailbroken iOS 7-8 4s.... I even have one on 9 now. Although I don't use it, when I do, it seems ok. What's the main problem? Again, just curious ....

    6.1.3 blobs are still signed ota so you can use beehind to restore without blobs if you are jailbroken
