    Your own fault & I believe this doesn't even merit a thread...

    You should always read before you act, especially w/ anything related to jb.

    You cannot downgrade a 4S currently even with Shsh blobs saved.
    Next time research before assuming anything.

    The OP already acknowledged he made a mistake. Why kick him while he's down with the condescension?

    I just don't get it. Why is the 4S so special that you can't do so many things with it compared to other iphones?

    We are all human and therefore make mistakes.

    Learning curve.

    Love how when people tell him the truth and answer the question they get downvoted:D
    He said he thought he could downgrade, so I told him next time to research more cause what is true for all other iphones currently is not for the 4S.
    This way he wont get stuck. You know, ask questions first then proceed.

    i have a 4s

    It is AT&T, pending unlock. Right now, i am using SAM and it also works on gevey if i need to as it is 5.0.1. i only started using iphone 2 months ago with a 3gs, unlocked and sold it. Then, i got a 4, now a 4s. I did not even know what jailbreaking and unlocking meant before that. One rule of thumb, do NOT restore and/or upgrade ur iphone & guard ur baseband with your life unless you want a shiny ipod for a long long time.

    Agreed. We're only human, I don't understand why some post nasty, condescending and unproductive comments. Does it make you feel better? It just makes you look like a jerk.

    In my defense I upgraded and downgraded while apple was still signing 5.01 I was going to downgrade again just before they stopped....

    Damn was too late. I'm assuming that the 4s's shsh's will eventually be able to be used??? Otherwise y does saurik save them?

    We saved them in case we ever need them, but may not ever use them but it nice to have it, like a condom, better have one and no need it, than need one and don't have one.
