    Has anyone on 10.3 tried to downgrade to 10.2 and how did it go?
    Loving this jb on my 6s (daily driver) and want my Jet Black 7 to be jailbroken

    Please only comment if:
    You just want to discuss things or are curious
    Or if you've actually tried to downgrade
    (because nobody cares how you think it will go, we could all play guessing games)

    You could probably restore from a backup you made pre-10.2.1/10.3. The filesystem change I think has killed the Shift+Restore option. You can always DFU restore while 10.2. is still being signed. I switched phones while on 10.3 and my new phone is on 10.2...hoping that maybe Luca or someone can pull a miracle off and jb the 7/7+ not on 10.1.1. I miss my jb but not a total deal breaker. 10.3 was pretty smooth. Good luck! Yalu ftw!

    Gonna try using my 6s's backup, only difference between my two phones is pictures and Safari tabs (plus I'll backup my 10.3 7 before restoring so I don't lose anything anyway)

    I like 4 things from jailbreak: No dock and page dots, screen record, no carrier in Status Bar, and Phantom/Snap+
    And these are very minor changes!

    restore to 10.2.1, restore latest backup of 10.2.1 made before installing 10.3, done.

    yes i did it myself, 10.3 breaks steam & skype apps, as well as callkit (again).

    I thought I read today Apple stopped signing iOS 10.2 so I don't know if you can do that anymore.
