    I was running iOS 7 Beta 2 with my UDID registered. I downgraded down to iOS 6.1.4 (I have an iPhone 5) but stupidly forgot to put my phone in DFU mode when doing so. My phone is working fine and I successfully restored from a backup. Should I restore again to prevent any glitches that may come as a result of not restoring in DFU mode? Or, should I just leave my phone as is since it is working fine now on iOS 6.1.4?
    Thanks :)

    DFU stands for Device Firmware Upgrade. This is what iTunes puts your device into right before updating the software. You putting the phone in DFU mode first just means the phone is already in this mode so iTunes doesn't have to do it. Your phone got put into DFU mode either way. If you were successful in your downgrade, youre good to go.
