How To: Downgrade From iOS 7 Back To iOS 6.x [VIDEO]

We previously shared with you the process for updating your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to the iOS 7 beta firmware and now we are back again with another tutorial on how to downgrade from iOS 7 to the latest version of iOS 6. At the time of writing this article that is iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 on the iPhone 5.

Although Apple strictly states that you can’t downgrade from a beta version of iOS, it is simply not the reality. It is indeed possible to downgrade from iOS 7 beta back to iOS 6 and in the video tutorial below I walk you through the entire process.

How To Downgrade From iOS 7 beta To iOS 6.x


Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is head on over to the iJailbreak Downloads Section and grab the iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 firmware.

Step 2) – Now connect your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to your computer via the Lightning connector.

Step 3) – Launch iTunes and go into the device summery tab. Now Option click on Mac or Shift click on Windows the Restore button and then select the iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 6.1.4 firmware.

Step 4) – You will now simply need to watch your iOS device be restored back to iOS 6.x. If you experience an error simply place your device into DFU mode and then repeat the process from step 3.

Unfortunately it isn’t possible to downgrade from iOS 7 to a Jailbreakable firmware like iOS 6.1.2 even with saved SHSH blobs. The only devices that can downgrade back to iOS 6.1.2 with saved SHSH blobs is A4 devices like the iPhone 4.

Let us know how the downgrade worked for you in the comments section below.
