    Hello guys!


    I made a huge mistake in this morning, I upgraded my iphone 4s, from 7.1.2 to 8.3 and till now I couldn't find any solution to downgrade it (error 3194). Please, can anyone help me to solve this problem? I'd be very grateful. Thank you!

    edit: Oh, I finded out that you can't downgrade the soft more... I think I'm gonna die.. RIP for me

    Yep. Apple makes it impossible to downgrade. They only want you moving up.

    Once they stop signing a version of iOS that's it. You can only update to a version that they still sign and usually that's the most current version.

    There are many posts here about how laggy iOS 8.x is on the iPhone 4s. OP is probably now dealing with that issue.

    Supposedly there will be some sort of special iOS 9 update specifically for the 4s that optimizes stuff, but until actual release that's just a rumor. What is not a rumor though is that iOS 9 will be a release focused on improving the function of iOS 8.

    Learn from you mistake.
    Next time don't upgrade because there is no going up and down with iOS firmware updates with Apple.
    You can only go up not down.
