Hey,

Long story short a lot of stuff went wrong for me, I can use iOS 6 but lost all SMS from past 5 years so want them back. I backed up before iOS 6 last night but it seems to have been overwritten by the initial backup once I installed iOS 6, so all I have is a loose backup from two months ago which I am ok to go back to.

Last year I went back from iOS 5 Beta to iOS 4.1.3 but can't remember how I managed it, anyone got an info?

PS. I'm well aware that the T&C say I can't do it, it did last year and I still managed it.

DFU mode, restore via iTunes ... done it many a time with iOS5 betas.
