It has 7.0.4, of course.
A program I need to use will only work on 5 or older.
No, Apple has long ago stopped signing the older OS's plus it does not have the device drivers needed for the newer hardware.
i was of course talking doing this jailbroken, outside of what world's richest company may or mayn't allow us poor peons do with our expensive phones.
You can't install an older OS than what the device came with, it's the same with Macs. But with iOS theres a signing window like the above person said. Jailbreaking your phone won't let you install an older version all it does is give you root access to be able to change how the OS works and looks nothing special
Where would you get the IPSW to install ?
You really haven't thought this thru at all.
No you can't. Looks like someone isn't very happy....
pity. thanks guys.
Have you tried IPA installer to force an install? Or tried faking your os version?
If something works on iOS 5 then it should work in iOS 7. There are restrictions as far as the lowest supported version, but I can't say l've seen restrictions on the highest supported version.
What hit me immediately is that thread starter has an "unofficially acquired" version of an app that he wants to keep using, but newer versions are not accessible "unofficially".
But I could be wrong
or a LockInfo scenerio
ios 5 was programmed for iphone 4S and lower. iphone 5 hardware is not compatible. One example is that you would be running ios5 with black borders on your iphone 5 because it's not programmed for 4.0 inch display.
Ah, the old "cake and eat it too" dilemma. It sounds like the OP needs to pick up a used 4S.
Lmao. iPhone 5 came out with iOS 6. So no, unless you can make the ipsw out of nothing.
