Hello, anyone successfully downgraded from iPhone5 iOs 10.3.3 to iOs 6?
If yes, how?
There is no officially supported way to downgrade the iPhone 5.
Apple is only signing 10.3.3, and no other software versions. That means that the only software you can install to the iPhone through iTunes is 10.3.3.
I see. The other ways non-officially are considered ilegal? Thanks.
If Apple has stopped signing an iOS version, then there's no way to go back to that older iOS version. It wouldn't be considered illegal, per se, just not possible (without modifying the hardware, such as replacing the logic board with one that has the iOS firmware installed. So, you would need some luck to find that...)
One way to get that older iOS version: Find an older iPhone (an iPhone 5) that has not been upgraded from iOS 6
Sometimes you do get lucky on eBay.
There is no way to do this, legal or otherwise.
Edit: Sorry, everything MacRumors is taking like five minutes to load and by the time I get around to being able to submit a lot of time has elapsed.
There have been times when Apple has (seemingly randomly, I believe) signed older versions of iOS. You could keep an eye on https://ipsw.me for this.
Jailbreaking can allow this. Although if you don't know what an SHSH blob is then it's unlikely you have what you may need.
I've heard that there is a downgrade for the 5 out there but have not looked closely at it. Involves jailbreaking though.
10.3.3 is jailbreakable.
You can dualboot in ios 6.1.3 on the iPhone 5 using Coolbooter.
