I'm running iOS 11 DB 2 and would like to downgrade back to 10. Unfortunately the only backup I have is for iOS 10.3.3 PB 3 and am wondering how I'd be able to restore to this given PB 4 is out. Can I just go to 10.3.2 and then restore on iTunes?

Unfortunately there has been a lot of issues downgrading to 10 from dev beta 2. It took me a couple hours to figure it out. You gotta downgrade to 11 dev beta 1 and then to iOS 10.3.3 beta 4. Beta 3 did not work.

That's not correct your can go to 10.3.3. You can not go to 10.3.2 you have to either go to DP1 or to 10.3.3 first then to 10.3.2
Well the way I mentioned is the only way that works... unless the OP has one of the devices that received the updated beta 2

Does 10.3.3 PB 1 work for a restore?
I tried 1, 2, 3 and 4. 4 is the only one that worked. You gotta do all this with ipsw files and DFU mode. It’s a little time consuming but it works.

iOS 11 beta 2 > iOS 11 beta 1 > iOS 10.3.3 beta 4 > iOS 10.3.3 beta 3 (if you want to restore to your last backup)

Is there a reason you want to do this? I’m just thinking, that maybe next week there will be another beta. So maybe waiting to see if it comes out is an option?

Got everything working properly. I ending up needing to go to iOS 11 beta 1 back down to 10.3.3 beta 1, restored from back up, then up to 10.3.3 beta 5
