How to downgrade your iPhone or iPod touch from iOS 5 Beta

If you are having trouble downgrading your iPhone or iPod touch from iOS 5 beta for whatever reason, here is how to do it.

The method is to put the iOS device in DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) mode, then restore.


  1. First turn off your device by holding down the power button until the red slider appears then swiping it right.
  2. Plug your iOS device into your computer with the dock cable and open iTunes.
  3. Once its off hold down the power button for 4 seconds to turn it on.
  4. After holding the power button down for 4 seconds, press the home button (while still holding the power button)
  5. Keep these 2 buttons held down for 10 seconds
  6. After 10 seconds release the power button but keep holding the home button
  7. After about 20-30 seconds the iPhone/iPod touch will appear in the iTunes side bar, you can release the home button now.
  8. You can now click the “Restore” button in iTunes. If it has a recent firmware cached in the iTunes folder it will use that straight away, otherwise it will download the correct version for you automatically.

Congratulations, your iDevice is now back to v4.x! You can now rebuild it from one of your previous backups (if available).


 

If you get the message “This device is not eligible for the requested build” or an error code 1013 in iTunes you can fix it using the following method. Only do this if you get the message after it decompresses the firmware file, then fails. Remeber only do this if you get the “This device is not eligible for the requested build” error.

Mac:

You will need to be an administrator for this to work.

  1. Open Terminal.app (it can be found in /Applications/Utilities/)
  2. Type in “cd /etc/” and press return.
  3. Now type in “sudo pico hosts” press return and enter your password when prompted.
  4. Find the line that says “74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com” and put a # before it (alt 3 on the mac keyboard). You will need to use the arrow keys to move the cursor.
  5. Press control X to exit pico, then type Y then return when prompted if to save the file.
  6. Relaunch iTunes and try the restore again. It should work.

Thats its!


Windows:

Much the same as above, just with a different path and a different text editor.

  1. Select Run from the Start menu or press the Windows key and R to open the run dialogue.
  2. Type in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and press enter.
  3. In the “Choose the program you want to use to open this file:” dialogue, select Notepad and click OK to open the hosts file.
  4. Find the line that says something like “74.208.xxx.xxx gs.apple.com” and put a # before it
  5. Save the file and quit Notepad
  6. Relaunch iTunes and try the restore again. It should work.
  • If that doesn’t work - or there is no gs.apple.com line to comment out, try adding 17.112.176.11 gs.apple.com to the hosts file below 127.0.0.1 localhost
