How to Restore iPhone 4s 5.0.1?
Posted 13 May 2012 - 03:11 AM
iPhone 4s 64GB 5.0.1.
Use iFaith I think to cook the 5.0.1 firmware with your saved shsh blobs, then itunes restore?

(they are all ultimately the SHSH Blobs for your device on that firmware, but iH8sn0w's are just packaged differently)
If Cydia has the 5.0.1 blobs, then you can do a restore. It will be stock, unless you go back and run a jailbreak after downgrading.

As for normal downgrading you can follow this blog guide. How To Downgrade.

LOL you don't need TinyUmbrella for that. I said you only need it to check for the Blobs.
lol good point Chris and i found that iFaith was the best solution, worked for me everytime, i never had problems with redsn0w either. Btw you dont need to Start TSS server or change hosts to Cydia if you are doing a restore with signed IPSW.
RedSn0w stitches the 5.0.1 firmware when you do a restore.
What it does is update you to 5.1.1, then stitch 5.0.1 into 5.0.1, then restore back down to 5.0.1

There is no switching with the 4S.
@Torayem, You are correct, just like it says on the dev team blog.
Any wanting to know how to restore their iPhone 4S to 5.0.1 can read this post here http://blog.iphone-d...622159/5x-redux The link chris provided is good and correct

I'm not fussed about the unlock, I'm with the carrier anyway and don't think I'll be leaving any time soon so thanks for the heads up about the unlock.
So to make things clear, in the 'How to Downgrade' tutorial, on step 6 it says to load up the firmware you want to downgrade to then to load up 5.1.1. Do I just load up 5.0.1 for both of them or should I update to 5.1.1 then follow the steps? I have my blobs saved locally also cydia says it's saved too.
"You have saved your iPhone4S 5.1 (9B179) SHSH locally and the request was sent to CYDIA. This means that CYDIA DOES have your SHSH. Do NOT bug semaphore about the Cydia home page showing this version." Don't have a clue what semaphore is =/
My apologizes for the step by step guidance. Don't want to restore and not be able to re-jailbreak.. =/
okay so I did try it, and it asked for 5.1.1. So I'm assuming it does need it. I'm downloading it now to see if it'll work despite my iPhone not on that firmware. 35mins to download @ 353kB/s =(.

tiny umbrella is saying that I'm on 5.1. I understand why it saying this but I thought I changed it. (the whole iPhoto app and tricking the iphone to thinking its on 5.1). Its saying it saved it for 5.1 now and when I go to 'build signed firmware' in iFaith it gives me some error that I can choose to ignore and continue or just quit.
Do I just go as standard to restore this iphone? TU, TSSserver, PWND DFU mode, itunes restore?
Okay so seeing that it's saving my 5.1 blobs.. how do I fix this?

Again why are you replying to old threads giving bad advice. If you are not familiar with the restore process of different models please refrain from posting. This topic is from may and restoring has significantly changed, plus the only way to restore a 4s is either to the latest firmware or a 5.x re-restore. Really not sure what you are on about your custom stitched firmware.
I manage to factory restore to 5.0.1, but the process was less than flawless. I haven't had any problems since, but I accept no responsibility if this screws things up later
I started by stitching a custom IPSW in redsn0w using an SHSH blob I saved in TinyUmbrella. Then I went into iTunes and tried to restore using this IPSW while connected to Cydia's server.
About midway through this, I got an error, so I tried to kick the iPhone out of recovery using TinyUmbrella's Fix Recovery/Exit Recovery options. All this did was drop the phone into an endless reboot.
Thinking I just bricked my phone, as a last-ditch effort before restoring to 5.1 I used redsn0w's Recovery Fix utility. After letting it do its thing, surprisingly, I had a fresh 5.0.1 install.
It worked for me.
