    Hi, is it possible to downgrade from iOS 5 if you had your shsh or whatever they're called stored on Cydia?

    Just wondering, as someone scammed me & bricked my iPhone right now on iOS5 (why do people do this dammit)....

    Anyway just wondering if it's possible as my phone is bricked right now :( , or if anyone could help me activate it?

    Thanks

    How did they scam you and brick your phone? Tried putting it into DFU mode and restoring via iTunes to 4.3.3?

    It's likely they have not added it - maybe give it a couple of hours or so? Maybe they will get round to it.

    Yes. Good news! I put it in DFU mode and it's currently downloading and it's going to restore! Great news for me haha :D

    Same issue

    I bricked my iPhone 4 and can't get iTunes to restore the device to 4.3.3. I keeps saying that my device isn't eligible for this version. Anyone have any suggestion on how I can get back to 4.3.3. I've no success all day. Thanks.

    Edit your host file. Google if you don't know what this means.

    I know what this means, however I'm not sure nor can I find yet what specifically I need to edit in my host file. If you have any specifics that be great, thanks.
