    I have an iPhone 4S, and I want to downgrade it from iOS 6.0.1 to iOS 5.x. How can I do this?

    I am willing to jailbreak the phone and erase all the data on it.

    I want to do this because Bluetooth AVRCP (showing song title and enabling controls like play/pause and next/previous) simply does not and cannot work with iOS 6.x and my car stereo. iOS 5.x will work.

    You cant as of right now, sorry for your luck. Maybe in the future, but if you were never on 5X then i doubt you will ever be able to

    I hear from Reddit that there is now an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1. Does this mean it is now possible for me to downgrade to 5.x somehow?

    Alternatively, can I install a different version of Bluetooth on a jailbroken iPhone? iOS 6 has the Bluetooth profile AVRCP 1.4, I need an older version.

    Also, this is NOT an iPhone 5, it is a 4S. The iPhone 4S did originally have iOS 5.x on it when I bought it. I upgraded it to iOS 6 before I owned this car stereo.

    Maybe you cant read well but you cannot downgrade your 4S.
    Even if you had shsh blobs for 5.1.1 that you probably dont know what they are there is currently no program available that will downgrade a 4S.
    Ask again the same question in 3 hours.

    Maybe you can't read well, but I didn't ask the same question.

    Here is the question that you apparently missed: Can I change the Bluetooth profiles used by my 4S? Does jailbreaking enable me to mess with the Bluetooth?

    Maybe I should have started a separate thread for this question.

    You asked the same question again: "Does this mean it is now possible for me to downgrade to 5.x somehow?" Applejuiced replied to that question and did not reply to the rest. He was not misreading or ignoring you. He simply believes in one finding one's own answers.

    I didnt answer or say anything about the bluetooth profile above cause Im not sure about that.
    Read what you asked above. You did ask again if there's a way to downgrade to 5.x somehow.
    Maybe in the future it will be possible if you have shsh blobs saved for 5.1.1
    Do you have those backup up or saved with tinyumbrella?
