Loophole Discovered for Downgrading From iOS 5.1

Loophole Discovered for Downgrading From iOS 5.1

Did you recently update to iOS 5.1, only to realize that there isn’t yet an untethered jailbreak for Apple’s latest firmware? Good news – there’s a loophole for that! According to Sn0wBreeze creator iH8sn0w, it’s now possible to downgrade the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 from iOS 5.1 back to 5.0.1.

This is pretty significant for anyone that’s already updated to iOS 5.1. While a loophole has been discovered, however, no public tool or instructions have yet been released to help users downgrade their devices, although it is likely that such a tool will be released in the near future.

    Question… If u buy a brand new iPhone 4S that comes with 5.1 can u downgrade that one to 5.0.1 using this technique?

    1. No. Because it isn’t available yet. But once it is released, then yes, it should work.
