    I have an Verizon (CDMA) Iphone 4 (Black) with IOS 6 i'm wondering if there is a way to downgrade to IOS 5.1.1

    I didn't save my SHSHblobs before upgrading.

    I'm running iTunes version 10.6.3.25

    I've read something about downloading an .ipsw file and restoring my phone?

    any help is appreciated.

    From all reports, that ship has passed. Hopefully that changes soon.

    No, but it would be interesting to know how many people have wanted to.

    51% iPhone 4 here also. While waiting for "Purchased," App Store crashes. Moving large apps causes shutdown. Wifi works for awhile and suddenly turns off.
    IOS 6 has slowed 4 to turtle pace. So far there is no way to get back to version 5...

    Without SHSH, that ship has sunk and won't surface again.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction of how to downgrade my 4S from iOS6 back to 5.1.1 if I DO have my SHSH in TinyUmbrella?

    There is currently no method to allow A5+ devices to downgrade, even with SHSH blobs.
