OK. I did PapaCarello's procedure and got the error 1394 or so.
I went back to iOS 6 and I lost all my settings an data. iTunes said I could recover them from the cloud. I tried it and then ask me for Wi-Fi and here at the office it is not easy. So I will try at home ...
Now I have iOS "null" without any class of Map ...

Yesterday night, at home I sincronized with iCloud on the Wi-Fi and I recovered all my settings and data (except the music, that is only in my notebook).
So I am in iOS6 as before (I tried to downgrade to 5.1.1). With AppleMaps without sound, blue arrow,and recalculations.
HOPE: Apple will recognize the big mistake and will permit to download Google Maps from its application store.
Knowing how big Companies react in particular when need to declare a huge failure, we could be talking about a couple of months ... maybe December 1st ...
What do you think?

I upgraded to ios 6 on my iPad 2 GSM model on launch day and noticed how bad Apple Maps was as well as the removal of the native youtube app. I think its terrible that Apple have removed these 2 great apps.
Anyway, i downgraded mine back ios 5.1.1 pretty much 1 hour after upgrading. I was able to do this no problem. Although I was not able to restore from a ios 6 backup, it could only be done from a previous ios 5 backup and it had to be a backup done on the computer. ICloud wouldnt work.
Today I was at a friends house and my friend wanted to downgrade his iPad 2 wifi model back. So I tried to do a restore with the correct firmware and was greeted with "This device isn't eligible for the requested build". I guess that Apple have closed the door to the downgrading signing window. Which is a massive problem for a lot of people.
Thank god I downgraded mine when I noticed what ios 6 was like.

It does seem that Apple has now closed off this route to downgrade. The steps do work but it only worked for a few days after the release. I guess Apple likes to force upgrades on people and than never lets them go back.

Looks like Apple has closed the door on downloading. I wrote Tim Cook a few weeks ago on other issues that their Customer Group could not resolve. That got me a responce from an Executive Support persomel.
If you want to follow up on this he may be the individual to contact.

Is that lesson to stay away from Apple Products in the future?

You can't downgrade. Apple servers have blocked it.

For some reason it is not working for me. I'm on a iPod Touch 4g running iOS 6. Please help.

GUYSS ,, first of all hello ,, i'm sorry to tell you that there is no way to downgrade the A5 , A5X , A6 , A6X devices , because the IOS 5.1.1 isn't signed by apple and it blocked it ,, so you can't do anything , but the A4 devices you can downgrade it and easily do it ,, i hope that there will be a solution. I really worked on that to know this new ,, thank you
