Can I downgrade from iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 7.1?


Can I downgrade from iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 7.1?

Since Apple launched iOS 7.1.1, many iPhone customers who up to date their units to iOS 7.1.1 have been asking me this query: "Can we downgrade from iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 7.1.1 to iOS – iOS 7?" Additionally all of us need to know if Evasi0n7 can be up to date to help iOS 7.1.1 and seven.1... 
Sadly the reply for all these questions is "NO". iPhone customers cannot downgrade from iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 7.1 to iOS or any older firmware, as a result of Apple has stopped signing the firmware information. It additionally means which you could’t replace to an older model of iOS. For instance: You possibly can’t improve from iOS 6.x to iOS 7 – iOS

Apple has used this technique to hold jailbreakers at bay. It not solely releases new software program updates that fixes the vulnerabilities utilized by the jailbreaks, it additionally stops signing the older iOS firmware file, which prevents customers from downgrading again to the older iOS model that may be jailbroken.

Apple adopted the identical steps within the newest iOS 7 variations by patching quite a few vulnerabilities that was utilized by the evasi0n7 jailbreak in order that it doesn't work with iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1, and in addition stopped signing iOS firmware information so customers can't downgrade to it.

The now defunct iPhone Dev staff had  defined how Apple had made it troublesome to downgrade to older model of iOS:
Beginning with the iOS5 beta, the position of the “APTicket” is altering — it’s getting used very similar to the “BBTicket” has all the time been used. The LLB and iBoot levels of the boot sequence are being refined to depend upon the authenticity of the APTicket, which is uniquely generated at each restore (in different phrases, it doesn’t rely merely in your ECID and firmware model…it modifications each time you restore, based mostly partly on a random quantity). This APTicket authentication will occur at each boot, not simply at restore time. As a result of solely Apple has the crypto keys to correctly signal the per-restore APTicket, replayed APTickets are ineffective.
It will solely have an effect on restores beginning at iOS5 and onward, and Apple will be capable of flip that change on and off at will (by opening or closing the APTicket signing window for that firmware, like they do for the BBTicket).
NOTE: iPhone four customers nonetheless can downgrade from iOS 7.1 to iOS 6.1.x or decrease in the event you’ve the SHSH blobs.

Till now we have no phrase from the iPhone Dev workforce or anybody from the jailbreak group about iOS 7.1.1 and iOS 7.1 jailbreak. On the meantime we nonetheless in speak and we'll maintain you up to date with something new... Keep tuned..
