How to Downgrade from iOS 5.0.1 to 5.0

Well guys I finally figured out how to downgrade from iOS 5.0.1 to 5.0. on my 3Gs. I don’t know if this method works on other models but its worth a try.

Remember: I cannot be held responsible for any software or hardware damage done to your phone by following this tutorial. Continue at your own risk

Now that the legal stuff is out of the way (and you’re willing to continue) you’ll need:

  • The latest version of Tiny Umbrella v5.01
  • A custom 4.3.3 IPSW
  • Stock 5.0 IPSW
  • The latest version of iTunes
  • The latest version of Redsn0w

First of all, open Tiny Umbrella and start the TSS server. Then open up Redsn0w, click on “Extras” and click on the button that says something like “…to restore to a custom IPSW” Follow the on-screen instructions… Now open-up iTunes and after putting your phone in DFU mode Restore to custom 4.3.3. Now update your phone to iOS via my previous tutorial… Now you have a jailbroken version of iOS 5:)
