This tutorial is only for iPhone users and it has been done under Windows 7.


To downgrade your iOS 5.1 to iOS 5.0 on iPhone 4 follow steps bellow:

Step 3: Once iFaith have started click Build *signed* IPSW w/ Blobs button

Step 4: Now click Browse for SHSH Blobs cache button and browse for the saved SHSH blobs file that was created when you saved your SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.0 firmware

Step 5: Now depending on which SHSH blob file you have selected in Step 4, you will need to select either iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.0 firmware file.

Step 6: Once you have successfully selected the right firmware file iFaith will start creating your custom firmware file which will take few minutes

Step 7: Once file is created click Main Menu button to return to iFaith main window

Step 8: Now click Use DFU Pwner button and follow instructions you see inside iFaith window, which include putting your iPhone into Pwner DFU mode

Step 9: While you iPhone is pwned DFU mode lunch the iTunes and restore iPhone to the custom firmware file you created.
