    Hi TrungTran,

     

    Backups do not backup the iOS....pretty much everything else, but not the iOS....

    I know this will probably be deleted, but making fun of someone whose 1st language isn't English not only is insulting, it shows what an inconsiderate jerk you are!  And for the record, the visual difficulties expressed is NOT exaggerated!

    I'm not completely sure if this will work for sure, but here's what I've got.

    1. I would say to back up your iPhone, but iOS 7 backups won't work with iOS 6....(But do it anyway because there's always a chance something won't work right and you'll be on iOS 7)

    2. Download an .ipsw of iOS 6.1.x for the corresponding iPhone you have.

    3. Connect your iPhone to iTunes, and put your iPhone into DFU Mode.

    4. If you're using a Mac- Hold the option key and press restore.

    If you're using a PC- Hold the shift key and press restore.

    5. A windows will appear, and then navigate to the .ipsw, highlight it, and click open.

    Hope this works! Good luck!

    No, it won't work. Apple has stopped signing previous versions of the iOS.

    If that method worked, this thread would be only 1 page long, not 83.

    It was irrefutably proven than you had to bridge the antenna gap with a good deal of effort ("death grip") to cause this problem and even a gibbon could learn to hold the phone without losing signal and needing a case.  I guess you never figured it out.

     

    Total rubbish. It was irrefutably proved that you could easily and accidentally short out the antenna, resulting in a total loss of signal. If it was so easy to avoid, why did Apple shell out millions getting people's phones to work properly, by giving away bumpers? Or do you know something that they don't?

    Bovine excrement of the highest purity.  It was repeatedly shown that you had to squeeze hard with a part of the hand  bridging the gap, (hence the "death grip" name) and then only about 50% drop in signal.  Most of the trolling youtube videos used metal paperclips to "demonstrate" the issue. 

     

    Why Apple supplied free bumper cases has to do with public relations due to the hyped, late night TV show publicity, probably a concept beyond  your grasp (or doesn't translate well into Korean). 

     

    I did err in my last post where I said "even a gibbon can learn to hold the phone without losing signal."  I should have said marmoset.  Maybe you can aspire to that.

    Today marks the second anniversary of the death of Steve Jobs. Yesterday, Tim Cook offered the following thoughts.

     

    "Steve was an amazing human being and left the world a better place. I think of him often and find enormous strength in memories of his friendship, vision and leadership," Cook wrote.

     

    "He left behind a company that only he could have built and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We will continue to honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to the work he loved so much. There is no higher tribute to his memory. I know that he would be proud of all of you."

     

    "Except those of you who ignorantly ruined a perfectly legible operating system."

    Totally tasteless last paragraph. And possibly libelous.

    I guess you didn't hear about the new Samsung Steve Jobs channeling device.

    If that were possible, this thread would not be 83 pages long.
