Restore 9.1 restore your backup and then use shift update to go back to 9.0.2 if it will let you. Also are Apple still signing 9.0.2

Don't do that. Just restore straight to 9.1, restore from iCloud backup, then shift update to 9.0.2
Now i have to restore straight to 9.1 means using ipsw file by DFU mode and then Hold+shift by selecting 9.1 ipsw?
