    I am very disappointed that Apple took away blurred layers in NC, CC, keyboard and nav / title bars and this looks so awful now on iPad 2. Performance issues can't be true because it was just running fine on beta 4 with all those fancy effects.
    So now, I want to go back to beta 4 or to iOS 6 (first option preferred;)) so how do I do this?

    To go back to 6, put the phone in DFU mode and restore through iTunes. You may be able to restore to beta 4 by holding Option while clicking Restore, but I don't know whether this is still possible (and be aware that beta 4 will likely expire at some point).

    I know, it expires Sep 12, but I want to use it as long as possible... Am I able to downgrade to beta 4 then?

    If you have the software file for your phone then you should be able to.

    Thanks a lot! I will try this morning (PDT) or afternoon (MEST) if it works and share results.

    You can't downgrade as such, you will have to restore.

    I'm on Windows 7 and all I did to restore to 6.1.3 was connect my 4S to iTunes and then Shift+Restore and chose restore as new. No DFU mode required.

    I went back successfully and now I am enjoying blurs again. No lag, no pain, no crashes. But it looks great - better than a greyish version of everything.:cool:
