Downgrade from iOS5 to iOS 4.3.3

You are an iOS developer and obviously you downloaded and upgraded your iOS device to iOS5 beta the day Apple announced it on 6th June. At least I did. Really liking lot of the new features in iOS 5 now.

But if for any reason you want to go back to 4.3.3, Apple says you can’t do that. Not true! It is extremely easy :

  1. Download the iOS 4.3.3 IPSW file for your device from here
  2. Connect your device to iTunes on your computer
  3. In iTunes simply click (Mac) OPTION + Restore button. I believe on Windows it is Option = Shift or Alt.
  4. Browse to the IPSW file and and hit restore. Thats it !!!
