I am trying to downgrade from iOS 5 to 4.3.3. Tiny umbrella shows I have the proper SHSH blob saved for that version.

When I run the TSS server and then try to restore the phone with 4.3.3 in iTunes, I get the not eligible error.

I have the old bootrom 3GS, on baseband 6.15.


Anyone encountered this before?

check in see in TU if your host is set to cydia, that is necessary for 4+ firmwares. Upgrading 5+ firmwares this needs to be deselected.

Just tried that, but still getting the same error.

I tried it with 4.2.1 as well, but I get the error as well.

Really don't want to be stuck on iOS 5 :(

Okay, problem solved.

I am using a VPN, and apparently that affects things.

I turned my VPN off and boom... it works! :D

Thanks for the replies.

Just wondering your reasons for wanting to downgrade. I'm currently on 4.3.1 and considering upgrading to 5.0.1.
