    Apple do not support downgrades.

    This is not a answer. Question was HOW TO DOWNGRADE IOS 6 to IOS 5.1.1

     

    Apple not only do not support downgrades, seemsed to me that Apple do not support their customers and their devices!

     

    Question still opened.

    Question may still be open but that is the only answer you will get.

    Not only is it an answer, it is a correct answer, a concise answer, the only correct answer, and one that has been asked and correctly answered hundreds of times already.

     

    If you want a different answer, go elsewhere. However, it will not be correct.

     

    Therefore, all you will do is waste your time. This is your decision.

    Ok, who determined that it is correct answer? You? Apple? Who? And where should I go with question that very important for me with my 700$ apple device? Not discussions.apple.com? Don't you think that it is wrong?

  • Allan Eckert Level 9 (50,721 points)

    It has been the policy of Apple since iOS was first released that downgrading of iOS was not supported.

    Choose one. Choose neither. It's your question.

     

    And where should I go with question that very important for me with my 700$ apple device?

     

    As I wrote: elsewhere. As I wrote, you'll be wasting your time. It's your time to waste.

     

    Don't you think that it is wrong?

     

    What I think is not relevant to this discussion.

    I'm not sure, try googling it mate.

    Apple hosts this forum, so you won't find solutions Apple does not support here. If they don't support it, it is usually for good reason.

  • Vytron Level 1 (0 points)

    the bottom line is that Apple does not and probably never will support you downgrading. sorry, thats just the truth. however, just because Apple wont support it doesn't mean it cant be done. however as this is an Apple support comunity, you wont find the answer here.

    also remember that if you look for answers outside of Apple you deserve what you get, be careful. the magic of Apple is in its simplicity, the dark side is that in order to keep things simple you have to restrict some complexities

     

    Good luck

    easy2do. Don't be fooled by these Level 6 people. You get to Level 6 here by clicking "Like" and "That Helped Me" buttons. Not by actually helping people. They love to tell you they don't have a solution and say that there is no solution. Look elsewhere, these people are no help to anyone.

     

    Like anything in life, something is impossible until it is possible. Another forum about this issue has 45,000 views in 2 weeks. People are looking for an answer. When they find it you might also know it.

     

    Unfortunately for the moment the solution is not clear. Certainly it won't come from Apple though as they don't care about your wants any more, they care about their money. Short term selfish thinking has taken over.

    No, we get to Level 6 by hitting the "Report Post" button on offensive posts .

  • Steve Maximus Level 1 (0 points)

    Well you must have done that over 16 thousand times. Well done.

  • stevejobsfan0123 Level 8 (40,262 points)

    I didn't know you had 16 thousand posts.
