I downgraded my iPad 3 last night via ALT+Restore and selecting the ipsw.

For an experiment just now, I tried to downgrade my iPhone 4S and was given the error that the device is not eligible for the requested build.

Didn't notice it posted elsewhere, but seen a lot of discussion last night around 5.1.1 still being signed. Thought I'd let folk know.

Given the sh*tstorm over IOS6, Apple should really provide an elegant way to go back to IOS5 for users who want it.
