    I'm selling my old iPhone 4 which is currently on iOS 7.0.4 and I was going to jailbreak it before selling to add a bit of value, however when I connect it to iTunes and click 'restore' it tells me it will also automatically update it to the newest version of iOS - no thanks. So I downloaded the 7.0.4 ipsw and option-clicked the 'restore' button which allowed me to choose which firmware I used during the restore process, but then it throws up another error and doesn't let me do it.

    Is this the correct/best way to restore without updating? Or am I missing something here??

    Add this repo in Cydia http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO

    Install ILEX R.A.T. (iOS 7), open the app and hit the ILEX RESTORE button. I would sign out of iCloud beforehand though.

    Hmm but now I have another problem. I jailbroke with Evasi0n and now I can't seem to launch the Evasi0n app to finish the process...??? Any ideas anyone?

    UPDATE: Tried it about 3 more times and it 'took' on the latest try. Have Cydia back now. Huzzah!
