Downgrade? Are you having trouble because of an upgrade?

No, I recently restored my phone after jailbreaking it because I thought there would be more apps with the relate but of the sdk but since there’s not I want to jailbreak it again

• Open iTunes
• Connect the iPhone
• Sync
• Make sure you’re on the main tab where you see the [Update] and [Restore] buttons.
• On Mac, hold down the [Option] key, and then click the [Restore] button. On PC hold down the [Alt] key, and then click the [Restore] button.
• A dialog will pop up to tell you to find the restore image. On the Mac, it is located
Username > Library > iTunes > iPhone Software Updates.
• Choose the version you want to downgrade to -> 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3
• Select it and watch it go!

* Sorry, I do not know the PC location of the file, if a PC user could add to this I would be grateful!

I should also ask if you just bought the iPhone. Downgrading a newer phone is a much more complicated task and NOT recommended. My phone is a zero-day phone, so it’s a little more flexible.

Wait for the first applications that will use the sdk protocol. You will be sure you won’t screw the things up.
