hiya,i have an iphone 4, basically I was on ios 7.0.4, I used ifaith to get my shsh blob from cydia which was 6.0.1, I downloaded that to my computer and made a ipsw to downgrade in iTunes.
the downgrade process went ok, but I got stuck in dfu mode, nothing I could do was getting it out, so after a lot of messing around, I jailbroke using redsn0w and booted tethered.
the iphone booted up with 6.0.1 software, but I had "no service"??
ive been trying loads of fixes from youtube and google but im still stuck?
I tried to install the evasi0n untether patch but that did not work, although it did install fine on my phone, when I turned my phone off it wouldn't boot back up.
if anyone can help I would be much appreciated, I really wanted to stay on 6.0.1 so I could keep the jailbreak, but if I have to restore then so be it.
I hope someone can help as im without a phone for last 2 days lol

thanks a lot, take care

Did iFaith say that your 6.0.1 blobs are valid?

Did you depend on ultrasn0w or a sim interposer to unlock the phone?

I'd say try restoring to 7.0.4 and see how it goes. If it all works fine, try restoring to 6.0.1 again (assuming your blobs are valid)

That's the thing I downloaded iTunes 10.5.4 to do the downgrade ,
I had a old version of I faith to create the ipsw I think it was version 1.5.4.
I tried to use a new version of ifaith to see if that would work but it says my aptickets are invalid??
I don't know what to do anymore??
I've been without a phone for last nearly 3 days

If iFaith says your aptickets are invalid, then that means your SHSH blobs for 6.0.1 are no good. You have to restore to the latest version (currently 7.0.4)

Can you restore to 7.0.4 or are you even having troubles with that?

im having trouble restoring to 7.0.4 as well, I downloaded the newest iTunes when it prompted me to upgrade to 7.0.4.
it will extract the software and start backing up the phone, then a box will pop up saying that iTunes has stopped working and needs to close???
im at my wits end trying to figure out what to do? because at the moment I have a jailbroken iphone on 6.0.1 but have no service or carrier settings?
I just wanna get this sorted, I feel like crying loool.
its getting to the point where I don't think I can fix it and I will have to buy a nokia lumia 520 because it cheap, which I really don't want that to come to.

Update your iTunes' version before restoring to iOS 7.0.4

Try a different computer to restore to 7.0.4

i did update to the newest itunes but it still wont work? does it have anything to do with my phone being on a tethered jailbreak? also what state should my phone be in to do the upgrade? normal mode or dfu mode?
ill try on a different computer but im not holding much hope

Try DFU mode when restoring

Try a different computer and let me know how it goes
thanks for your replies, I will have to try a different computer tomorrow.
so I reckon that I successfully downgraded with invalid shsh blobs? is that even possible?
is there anyway to fix my phone if trying from another computer doesn't work?

It is possible to downgrade with incomplete blobs but you'll be stuck in soft DFU mode when you restart the device (so essentially a tethered jailbreak, except you'll be in that situation even if you didn't jailbreak)

You would need to use redsn0w's just boot feature to kick it out of soft DFU mode

ok I didn't know that, ive read so much about trying to fix my problem the last 3 days my brain feels fried.
what would be the reason as to trying to restore on another computer? is my computer broken?

It doesn't mean that your computer is broken but there's a possibility there's something wrong with iTunes on your computer or something on the computer that's messing up the restore

Hi again, thank you so much for your help.
I actually brought a lumia 520 because I couldn't get to another computer to try the restore.
Anyways my girlfriend took my phone to her mums house and restored it on her computer and it worked!!!
So I am using the iPhone 4 again and will be hopefully returning the lumia.
Once again thank you for your help, much appreciated ;-)
