The iPhone Dev-Team To Release A Downgrading Solution For A5 iOS Devices?

It looks like hacker MuscleNerd has done some of his own snooping through the iOS 5.1.1 firmware, as he has recently tweeted Apple left alone an unreleased technique that will allow A5 iOS devices to be downgrade back to the iOS 5.0.1 firmware.

Downgrade A5 iOS Devices

This is the first we have heard from hacker MuscleNerd on such a downgrading solution, and is really some exciting news for those of you who accidentally upgraded past the iOS 5.0.1 firmware. As if you are able to downgrade your A5 iOS device from the iOS 5.1 firmware to the iOS 5.0.1 firmware you can Jailbreak Untethered once again.

iPhone 4S and iPad 2G Untethered Jailbreak

What is interesting is it looks like Apple never patched this vulnerability in the iOS 5.1.1 firmware because nothing was publicized. This obviously means when the iPhone Dev-Team release their downgrading solution it will be functional with the iOS 5.1.1 firmware.

Unfortunately there has been no given ETA of this mystery downgrading tool, but we will keep you updated when we hear more information on it. Until that time, let us know if you would be interested in such a tool that allows you to downgrade from iOS 5.1.1 or iOS 5.1 to the iOS 5.0.1 firmware on your A5 iOS device in the comments section below…

    I have been waiting so long to downgrade my iphone 4s ios 5.1 to 5.01. I wish it will be soon…..

  • MonsterMan

    If they could do this quickly, we could save the exploits that are being used for a potential 5.1 untethered release and use them once iOS 6 is released…wishful thinking most likely

  • DyeZone

    That is Wonderful but WHEN ????????????????????????????? JB or Downgrade,,,PLZ 5.1 with no JB is making me CRAZY

  • Vini

    And about downgrade the modem baseband? :,,(

  • C Morrall

    i have downgraded my iphone before, it was never the same after that. Things started stuffing up, we just want the 5.1 untethered to be released!

  • Mat 5070

    If they release the downgrade tool I’ll would say to release the JB till iOS 6,but if no downgrade tool is released it, , release the 5.1 JB please, specially when people are using A5 devices.

  • Remii221

    I dident have a choice my 4s came with 5.1 so i do t have shsh im just stuck like chuck

  • Remii221

    I say release the 5.1 jb theres sooo many people waiting for it.

  • Peter4england

    iPhone without jailbreak is doing my nut in aghhhhhhhhh

  • gg

    Please release 5.1 untethered jailbreak, please, please. I had my 4s put aside and wont use it until it can be jailbroken.  Accidentally upgraded to 5.1 and so desperate for the jailbreak. I am now using galaxy note but can’t wait to use my 4S again!!! Please release the 5.1 jailbreak soon. Thank you.

    I would downgrade, my iPhone battery is dying really fast after I upgraded to 5.1. If they do this, there would be no problem if they wait until iOS6 for JB.

  • unique_904

    my ipad messed up and had no choice but to restore it and all i use it for is XBMC to stream HD so now iv had to downgrade it to 4.3.3 so a jailbreak on 5.1.1 or a downgrade tool to put it on 5.01 would be great but we dont need both tools if it means burning up extra exploits

  • Bigfatdj1704

    What’s the point of not using your 4S? That’s stupid, your phone works without jailbreak.

  • Luisw1998

    it is really easy to jailbreak, i have the tethered, i have not turned my ipod off ever since

  • Luisw1998

    i have iOS5.1 tethered just incase, somehow i managed to download winterboard without losing cydia

  • Luisw1998

    and im a 13 year old kid

  • Deimons50

    i think it would be great to have downgrade tool.

  • Bigfatdj1704

    You should be watching Barney

  • Dave S

    I think if we can downgrade to 5.0.1 then save the 5.1 jailbreak and use the exploits for 6

  • Drizzt247

    To all you people saying hold the exploits till iOS 6, you do realize it is a major update and the exploits probably won’t even exist in it right. Not only that but what about all the people who have new iPads or 4s’s with 5.1 from the start. I was lucky and got my 4s just after 5.1 got released and JB’d it without issue on 5.0.1. But I have the new ipad so need the JB. 

  • Michael Schnier

    Different situations apply to different devices. The iPhone 4S can not currently be jailbroken or downgraded on 5.1.

  • Bappi_sky143

    pl z Release it ………………………………..

  • The Truth

    These hackers are amazing when it comes to finding vulnerabilities but…. Completely  stupid when thinking logically. Question: If they have a way for all the A5 & A5x device users to downgrade back to 5.0.1 & 5.0 then why the hell are they making us wait for a new jailbreak? I say keep your exploits, cuz they probably won’t work in IOS6 anyways and  provide us with the downgrade method. There Problem SOLVED!
