    Hi guys,

    I have a question regarding downgrading my iPhone 4 which is currently on iOS6..basically I want to know if it's still possible for me to degrade to 5.1.1 (I have my SHSH blobs and a copy of 5.1.1 with them stitched to it) and also if it's possible for me to keep all of the current data (texts, notes etc.) after downgrading or will they be incompatible and lost?

    Thanks :)

    Nope, iTunes will not permit you to restore to a backup from higher level firmware

    It is however possible to restore an older backup when you were still at 5.1.1

    Not all content, but most content is then restored.
