I just upgraded my iPhone 4 to the iOS 6. I HATE IT. HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE IT!

 

I refuse to sync it for fear of losing the last sync before this horrible upgrade.

 

How can I roll this back to the last version I had in here? I know I can restore it to it's original factory settings and put my stuff back in there from a back up but will it put in the OS updates to the last one before this catastrophe?

 

I just don't want all the crap it stuffed in there for social networking, lojacking me wherever I go and the email was nothing like I expected. A gigantic waste of time.

 

And the stupid cloud! NO NO NO NO. I do NOT trust this cloud and I do not want it. Everything is linked to this awful cloud.

 

Can anyone help me roll this thing back?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

    I'm not sure what to say since you seem fairly upset.

     

    First, I should start by saying I am going to be the bearer of bad news to you.

    There is no way to downgrade back to iOS 5.1.1. You are unfortunately stuck with iOS 6.

     

    As for your issues with iCloud, it is one of the better features I've seen added to the iPhone in a while and my whole family uses it. A HUGE benefit is the ability to restore your phone even if you are away from your computer. You can technicaly get by without having a computer to sync with since the backups go to the cloud.

     

    I'm sorry I couldn't help further. Good luck to you and let us know if we can help out in any way.

    So why exactly did you upgrade the iOS if you did not want and do not like all the new features in iOS6?

     

    As has already been stated, there is no supported method to go back to a previous iOS version.

     

    Maybe if you explained what specifically is the issues you are experiencing instead of ranting how you hate everything, we can offer some advice on how to resolve those issues.

    Again, as I mentioned, There is no authorized way to downgrade back to iOS 5.1.1. You are unfortunately stuck with iOS 6. Even starting from scratch.

     

    Take care and good luck.
