    I'm from the UK and have an A1429 model iPhone 5.
    I'm currently running ios 7 beta, but need to downgrade back to ios6 as the phone is for sale now.

    It says that my phone is GSM + CDMA on the apple website, does anyone have a link to the right IPSW file for me

    I'm really at a loss as to which to install.
    I believe it is the GSM 6.1.4 ipsw i need to install, but not sure.
    thanks

    Wouldn't iTune be able to automatically figure that for you? I would have thought so. I would say put the phone on DFU mode and then reinstall from iTunes.

    I wasn't sure if iTunes would allow me to restore to iOS 6, i'd read articles online that say you can only do it from restoring from a downloaded ispw?

    If not, i can try it later

    thanks

    Put iPhone in DFU
    Wait for iTunes to detect it
    Click Update and Restore on iTunes when prompted.

    Did this twice last weekend for iPhone and iPad, it worked perfectly!
