    He could do shift update instead and everything would still be saved. I did that 3 times and it worked on all 3 devices no issues.

    If you press shift on keyboard and at same time press update in iTunes. It will open a folder to find iOS 9. And so on to install your software without restoring.

    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 know if it will work 100% but it's worth a shot. Don't shift and restore make sure you press update

    Don't do that. Just restore straight to 9.1, restore from iCloud backup, then shift update to 9.0.2

    Yes. That works. Then do the same thing but with hold+shift update 9.0.2 after you restore from icloud backup on 9.1.
