Smile  Downgrade from 5.0 help
Post: #1
Hi everyone!
Looking for some suggestions on how to downgrade from 5.0 to 4.4.4 or some untethered soft version. I have 4.4.2 now untouched with SHSH saved with iFaith. I've done a few units before but understand its different now days since apple stop signing older firmware. I would really appreciate any help.
Cool

Thank you for the downgrade link HenryFord! Guess I will be able only to downgrade back to 4.4.2 (tethered) which is my original firmware with shsh saved using iFaith method from this site. Can I for example upgrade to a custom 4.4.4 after this or iTunes wont allow me to do so? Thank you!!!

Getting all kinds of error messages. If anybody knows the easiest way to jump from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4 please advise. Thank you.

Don't think it's possible as 4.4.4 isn't signed by apple anymore. Will have to either stay or go to tethered 5.1 with the latest xbmc.

Set Up
Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc - XBMC 12.2
40" Samsung ES6800 LED Smart 3D 1080P TV
Onkyo HTS3405 5.1 DD True HD and DTS-HD Surround Sound
ReadyNAS Duo with 4TB (2 x 2TB X-RAID) Western Digital Caviar Green using NFS
