    Okay, I really love iOS 5 and its features but I use my Touch mainly for music and I just can't stand the mess of the player. Playcounts, slow syncing, coverflow lag, sometimes it freezes when I'm copying songs and it sometimes displays this message at the top
    "Copying 1 of 103 songs" even when I'm not adding songs.. It's driving me nuts. Is a downgrade possible or not? I'll switch to iOS 5 when its somewhat stable. Thanks for your help guys. :)

    Incorrect



    If you have SHSH blobs of iOS 4.X , you can use TinyUmbrella to downgrade your firmware.

    do you have the shsh blob? of you have havnt jailbroken your idevice before then you dont have it. if you have, open Cydia and look at the top for the versions, if you see 4.x.x then your in luck

    when you open cydia and let it load, on the home screen at the very top you will see different version (4.2.1, 5.0.1 etc) in yellow writing.

    if you see nothing then your stuck with 5.0.1 D:

    Yeah and if you do downgrade you wont be able to go back to 5.0.1 once apple closes the APTicket.has anyone came up with a fix for that?

    T.T looks like we lost another one.
    at least you have 5.0.1 backed up. get tinyumbrella, so then you can backup the shsh blob to your computer
