    I realized that you can still downgrade from beta 2 to 4.3.3 by simply downgrading to beta 1 first. Then going to 4.3.3.

    You should've been able to go straight to 4.3.3 by simply restoring as Apple is still signing it.

    For whatever reason, I'm having difficulty downgrading from beta 2 to 4.3.3. It always says "This device is not eligible for the requested build." Any ideas?

    Got it! Just in case anyone was wondering that runs into this problem, the issue is with the hosts file in /private/etc

    Just add a # and a space before the gs.apple line (at the bottom), and you're good to go!
