    I'm sorry, but Apple does not provide a downgrade path for iOS. Because downgrading is unsupported by Apple we cannot discuss it on these forums, but you can use Google to find information on how to install an older version of iOS on any iDevice.

    Downgrading is not Supported by Apple.

    I searched google, but it says the sign off date has been cut by apple, so the downgrade cant be verified. is any other method still possible?

    What about "not supported" escapes your comprehension?

    Whatever you do, you will do at your own risk because downgrading is not supported by Apple.

    Any downgrade is considered a hack/jailbreak and voids your warranty and you forefit your right to get help here.

    It baffles me, i dont care about jailbreaking but i genuinly want to downgrade cause of the battery issue, all i want to know is apple still signing 6.0.1?

    You already answered your own question!

     

    Hint:  As in the rest of life and the real world,  asking the same question over and over won't get you an answer you want to hear.

     

    AND, FYI, your battery issues have nothing to do with 6.0.2

    Im not sure about that, the battery was runnig perfectly until i updated, left overnight untouch as with every other day, but was down to 60% from 100%. i googled thinking it unsual and many users have reported the same thing, even when im mailing now i see the battery draing after half hour like 10-20% which is not normal. I think and so do many other thinks its the firmware, as it changed from a coincidental update..

    If you do a thorough search of this forum going back 5+ years, you'll find the exact same complaint about poor battery life after EVERY update since iOS 1.0.1. (There are several recent threads about 6.0 and 6.0.1 and poor battery performance.) If the problem  was in the iOS, no one would be getting a battery life of over 5 minutes by now! 

     

    The problem stems from settings corruptions during the update process, usually involving push email (often on Exchange accounts), but other things can be involved.  This problem is also more frequent on previously hacked/jallbroken phones.  There are many long threads discussing how to fix these. Downgrading the iOS doesn't help.
