Where do you get this idea from? Pretty sure no. Developer devices don't get any sort of special treatment when it comes to iOS downgrades.If you are a developer, you can download iOS 5.1.1 to your computer, then restore ur phone with it, by option + left click
OK, so can someone clarify this for me please? I've just bought a 4S locked to Orange in the UK. It came with iOS 5.0.1 preinstalled, and I'd like to upgrade this to 5.1.1 (as I have on my old 3GS). I'm not ready for iOS 6 yet (the Maps issue, mainly), although it is showing as an available update on the phone at present.No. Apple stopped signing 5.1.1 completely and totally on September 22nd.
Is this an old bootrom 3GS? There is a method of starting the restore, allowing it to go all the way until it hits the error message, unplug it immediately, close iTunes, plug it back in, and use a method (like TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery. I'll see if I can find the article that explains it exactly, as what I just described is actually from memory.I am going to restore 3GS to factory settings but iTunes only gives an option to iOS 6 so is there any way to get iOS 5.1.1?
if you paid a bit more attention you could have saved your blobs and with the new redsn0w be able to restore to 5.0.1.So in a nutshell then, I'm stuck with 5.0.1 until I am prepared to make the switch to 6. Well thankyou so much, Apple. The more time goes by, the more I hate you.
Thanks for your reply
