Finally today, the iPhone Dev-Team released the method to downgrade back iPad 3, iPad 2, and iPhone 4S with the help of SHSH Blobs to older iOS in order to have the Untethered Jailbreak back again. This downgrade method works with the latest redsn0w v0.9.11b1. Now finally you can downgrade your iPad 3, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S to iOS 5.1 and iOS 5.1 with the help of Redsn0w 0.9.11b1. This version of Redns0w was teased by @MuscleNerd few days back on his Twitter account and today he finally released the new version of redsn0w.
Now, the new version of Redsn0w 0.9.11b1 is out, so we will guide you on how can you downgrade your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and iPad 3 from newer iOS to older iOS version below. Before we proceed on with this method make sure that you don’t rely on an Unlock on your iPhone 4S. If you are Unlocked using SAMPREF method on your iPhone 4S, then only proceed with the method because you will still be able to unlock you iPhone 4S with the help of Jailbreak when downgraded.
The reason we are telling unlockers to stay away from this update is because this method first updates your iPhone, iPad to latest iOS 5.1.1 and then downgrades to older iOS. In this process the baseband is definitely updated for iPhone 4S, iPad 3, and iPad 2 users. After the update is completed, then the downgrading work starts. Do remember that once the baseband is updated, there is no way to downgrade it. You will also need SHSH Blobs in order to make this method work.
If you have read the above terms and conditions, then follow on below to downgrade your iPad 3, iPad 2, or iPhone 4S from iOS 5.1.1 to 5.0.1.
