    Hello guys,

    i am a newbie to those betas IPSWs, i have recently upgraded my iPad 2 6.0.1 to iOS 7 Beta 2 (No developer account) by accidentally clicking alt+RESTORE on iTunes instead of alt+CHECK FOR UPDATES!

    Now iTunes won't let me downgrade to 6.1.3 knowing that i had previously saved the SHSH Blobs (6.1.3, 5.1.1, 5.0.1)...

    What can i possibly do?

    Your help is highly appreciated!
    Thank you !

    Search for DFU Restore. That's the way you can do it.

    There's a note which you should have read, saying this:

    iOS 7 beta 2
    This is a pre-release version of iOS 7 beta for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Devices updated to iOS 7 beta can not be restored to earlier versions of iOS.

    Wow- took longer than I thought for the its a beta comment- not helpful,but. You can downgrade via DFU, however you have to fall over to 6.1.3

    As said, use DFU mode to restore back to 6.x.... And hopefully you learned your lesson too.

    You forgot the comment about not jailbreaking if you don't know what you are doing.

    If you are going to diss don't go half way/s

    The DFU mode won't do much when restoring through iTunes to 6.1.3.

    I have tried DFU Restore using redsn0w to 6.1.3, it asks about an earlier version of 4.X and it's SHSH blobs which i don't have or saved!

    And no i am not planning to jailbreak if however it works!

    Still no clue at this time :( !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Forget redsnow. You only need iTunes and the iPad in dfu mode.

    When it is in dfu mode iTunes will ask to restore it, just click ok and it's done, back to iOS 6.

    Don't feed any ipsw to iTunes let it download the latest iOS 6 for your iPad.

    since you still don't get it, stay away from the beta. This is what gives real devs an attitude about non-devs

    alt+Restore in iTunes or simply hit restore?

    What version iTunes is going to download? 6.1.3?

    Thank you...

    Just hit restore but your device *must* be in DFU mode for it to work.
