I have a factory unlocked iPhone 4S 16GB running iOS 5.0.1. Just like everyone else, I have major battery drain! It loses like 20% overnight! I sleep For about 8 hours. So thats 20% gone in 8 hours. So I was thinking of restoring it. When I click on the Restore icon in iTunes it starts updating my phone to iOS 5.1! I don't want to update to 5.1. So I was wondering whether I could download iOS 5.0.1 from the web and then Shift + Click on the restore icon and restore my phone. Will that work? A lot of people are saying that it won't work because Appl has stopped signing iOS 5.0.1. I have no idea what that means. But I used to Shift + Click and restore my old iPhone 3G and it restored perfectly. It's still running iOS 3.1.3 haha. And Its also factory unlocked.


So, would Shift + Clicking on the restore icon in iTunes and manually selecting iOS 5.0.1 restore my phone? I really don't want to update. Thanks :)
