    Did you go into Settings > General > Reset and wipe all data first, zoom00? That's what gives you the option to simply restore from backup when you sync.

    This again? Not a option for the estimated 10+ million jailbroken iDevice users!

    I guess 10+ million users made a bad decision.

    Their is odviously other ways to restore iOS 5.

    I couldn't agree with you more.  I came to this thread to learn how to copy of my ipad so I could restore this version if I wished, now I am seriously thinking of looking into an Android device (after nearly 25 years of Apple use).  Apple has become just too lock-strp and too many people on this forum are just plain rude,

    Lawrence Finch, you obviously don't understand English very well.  If you had read through the posts here like I just did, you would see that using the Settings > General > Erase option and restoring from backup is NOT for the purposes of jailbreaking one's phone (horrors!).  Rather, it is for the purposes of restoring your phone from an existing backup WITHOUT being forced to upgrade to an inferior iOS 6 over 5.1.1.

     

    Today my iPhone decided to randomly delete all my contacts for no reason whatsoever.  I remain on 5.1.1 for a variety of reasons (which I feel no need to justify to you).  Fortunately, I ran across this thread and was able to successfully restore my backup and yet remain on 5.1.1.  So, a million THANKS to bwalton!!!!

    That's your fix? Tell everyone to jailbreak their phone?

    What's your fix then?

    I was responding to a post that said the only way to solve the problem was to jailbreak. The moderators then removed that suggestion from the post I was responding to.

     

    I'm not sure why you bothered to comment on a 6 month old post, however.

    You seem to have confused two replies to you. One was from imaybeawhile, written ~6 months ago. The other was by wrxnofx, and was written today.

     

    A third was by me, written... now!

    The reason why I responded to a 6 month old post is threefold:

    1.  It's still relevant.

    2.  It helped me.  Therefore it can help someone else.

    3.  I wanted to thank the person that helped me retain my existing 5.1.1 install.

    Hello, in my opinion it's possible i didn't try it self but let's move on.

     

    First download the iOS 5.1.1 .ipws / felixsbruns.com or somerhing

    Second Go to iTunes get your iDevice in to DFU mode so you can bypass many iTunes errors

    En then Itunes should do the rest self...

     

    i Hope it was very helpful
