    I understand your objection is that the answer is harsh. I disagree. It is also irrelevant to this forum's purpose.

     

    Harsh or not, it is the answer to the question.

    Was that too harsh for you?

    Since upgrading my iPad 2 to IOS 6, I can't open App Store, iTunes and some websites on WiFi and also can't stream from HBOGo.  Apple support told me, basically, tough luck. They said you can't downgrade.

    Look, the truth is we can't tell you the anwser. If I post an answer on here about how to do it apple will take it off of here. There may be a way. In a completely hypothetical situation there might be a way. maybe it would have something to do with shsh blobs. maybe it would be related to a small bumpershoot. It would probably require crystilized percipitation the color of roses. I just can't tell you because one of these wonderful people on here trying to 'help' you would report me and anything I would have tried to tell you would be taken off of here. I want to help, but I am bound and limited by the rules of this discussion site. Google it. Do your homework. The only answers we can give you are answers apple supports, this is the apple support community after all.

     

    On another note, come on guys, stop acting like little children. Argueing, poking fun, and intelectually harasing each other does not answer this question. If its not helpful dont waist our time. I write this knowing that by doing so one of you will take clips of it and, from the safety and annonimity of your computer, will slash my position to shreds to protect your small insecure egos from the truth that you could possible be wrong. luckily for me i dont care what you think of me or my oppinions.

     

    anyways, i will now dismount my soap box and sum the answer up to this:

    Google it!

    and read this fast because one of these guys is going to go crying to the administrator and tell them that i suggested something in my post

    There was nothing offensive at all about your comment so there is no need for someone to "slash" it or report it. All I will add if that Apple does not allow a solution here, it is usually because it is known to cause harm to your Apple product(s).

    I appreciate your polite responce sometimes but not always, i would send you an interesting blog article on the subject but the link would get flagged here.

    I am speaking the truth im not telling anyone to jailbreak. im just saying it is an option. If the moderators have something to hide then im sure it will be deleted. otherwise a help forum is for help.

    And hacking, "jailbreaking" in particular, is not help. It is way to to void your warranty and end up with a brick. But let's just agree to disagree. Be aware that hacking solutions are a violation of the Terms of Use.

  • Turry83 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Void warranty yes. End up with a brick is false and no help if your going to lie. Maybe you should move on. Yes 100% a violation to your warrenty and you will assume any and all damage not apple.

     

    But it will not be a brick. Thats a flat out LIE.  I own jailbroken iStuff and they work great.

     

    Its like buying aftermarket stuff for a vehicle. when done right make something great even greater but done wrong and, well void warranty and repairs come out of pocket.

    There my point proven. my posts are being removed and i didnt violate the terms. i didnt tell anyone to jailbreak and with my suggeston of it also told the dark side of voiding warranty. But still removed. This forum is like communist cuba.

    well, mr "borris the animal" EFF laws made it legal, and you dont need to jailbreak, ITS CALLED SSH-ing and turry83, ive posted that word on just about every non-hardware related question, theyre all still there and the only word removed in any of my posts is s_ _k _

     

     

    ----------EDIT------------

    Exactly. I'm glad people don't need to.

    Still not allowed on these forums.

    Google it, and you will find plenty of possible solution out there. For here, Apple clearly stops us from downgrading for some reasons.
