    Hello everybody. I know it might seem impossible, but I've given it some thought. Apple completely changed the whole iOS since 7.
    I really miss the old look of iOS 6. All the translucency and blur is cool-looking in iOS 7, but it has a huge impact on battery life on older devices.
    Wouldn't it be possible if some devs worked on this for a while? I'm sure it would be. But I guess nobody wants to bother. I miss the old "slide to unlock" feature in 6. You could also get back a jailbreak if a downgrade can be made.
    I'm hoping to see a utility in the future.
    Or maybe, I'm just getting my hopes up?

    Nope, there's no way to downgrade. You are on iOS7 and there's no way to downgrade - sorry :(

    It's not about devs working on it or whatnot, it's just not possible.

    Nope, no going back. Your only option would be to buy an iOS device from a 3rd party like eBay or Craigslist that is still running iOS 6.

    There are hacked and tethered ways to downgrade an iPhone 4 without SHSH blobs. Which device are you using?
