    Today I downgraded my iOS from 5.1 to 5.0.1 and I have to say the battery life is amazing on it again. Very happy with the down grade I must say:)

    May I ask? How have you done this? Are you on iPhone 4s?

    Easy. He just clicked his heels three times and with his eyes squinting, whispered, "There's no firmware like 5.0.1. There's no firmware like 5.0.1. There's no firmware like 5.0.1".

    .... its easy if you were jailbroken on 5.0.1. use redsn0w to "stitch" your shsh files into stock 5.0.1 firmware, and then do a normal shift+click restore in itunes.

    The thread starter has a 4S per his one and only other post

    That is why everyone is labeling this a troll post since we all know you cannot yet restore a 4S to older firmware

    ----------

    And just as a point of correction, it was possible to to save the required hash and APTicket file for 5.0.1 even if your phone was never jailbroken (via TinyUmbrella).

    So, as long as you have BOTH files for your iDevice (iPhone4 and older) you can restore to 5.0.1 even if never jailbroken
