Downgrade iOS 7 is currently IMPOSSIBLE

firmware

Don’t say I didn’t warn you! There is currently NO WAY to downgrade iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4. The reason behind this is that the current way to downgrade is by installing a custom firmware using iTunes, during this process iTunes contact Apple’s servers to ‘Code-sign’ the firmware which verifies it for installation onto your iDevice. The problem now stands because Apple have stopped signing off the older iOS versions.

Until an alternate method is devised the currently used techniques to downgrade iOS firmwares used by the jailbreak community are null and void. if you’ve upgraded to iOS 7 then you’re stuck there until a downgrade method is available or a jailbreak is released allowing you to have complete control of your device.

I have been receiving numerous messages from my followers telling me that they have updated to iOS 7 and not experienced any problems thus have no reason to downgrade, other have contacted me and told me about missing App icons and limited functionality on other features.

However you look at it I don’t think that ANY software release to date has gone smoothly and we are asking for a lot when we expect new releases to be completely bug free. Especially when Apple actually try to provide back support for devices that are up to 3 generations old so they do have a massive amount of variations to cater to.
