If you really mean iOS 13.1 then I’m afraid that is not possible. Apple stopped signing that months ago. I think that error 9 is confirming that. However you can go back to 13.3.1 quite easily (usually) without losing any data. Since you have already tried with the 13.1 IPSW I guess you know the drill.

Thanks , Have done it now, I rebooted my Mac and put the charging cable in after I put myiphone into restore mode and it worked when I updated it. I wanted to downgrade because the problem was I wear an Apple Watch and the Apple Watch was using charge quicker so from now on while I have my Applewatch synced to the iPhone I'm using, theres no more Beta testing for me lol. The iPhone wasn't to bad but once the Apple Watch started playing tricks , enough is enough ;-).

I’m not a MAC user but if you put your phone into recovery mode don’t you lose all of your data?

I always use special key+update and mostly my data survives.

no its jus a backup of what's on your phone . my bank has deemed their app 'networking if the phones restored or you change your phone by security code , which you just get in touch with them to reactivate it, its an online bank thats open 24/7
