Actually,there is way called tethered downgrading,but I doubt the OP would bother to do it

@King Shoot, can you give me a link for this ?

(26 Apr '14, 10:05) A08 A08's gravatar image

Please provide the link..

(27 Apr '14, 09:08) Jbkidi5 Jbkidi5's gravatar image

@King Shoot It's silly to even mention that. Forcing a restore to an unsigned firmware without shsh will make device go to a dfu-like state everytime it sleeps which needs to be connected to a computer to be boot tethered just to wake. Makes device impractical for normal use.

(27 Apr '14, 09:20) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

Yes,but it is still possible.

(27 Apr '14, 09:53) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

Like using square wheels on a car.

EDIT:I hope tethered restore is not against rules,I am posting an answer below

(27 Apr '14, 11:20) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

If you're gonna consider a tethered downgrade (@King Shoot not against the rules, just against common sense), you may as well stay on 7.1 and do a tethered jailbreak.

Like @Neel said,there is no way.Exept...if you are really desperate and if you are willing to commit to a lifetime of redsn0w dependence,try this out:

1)Find any iOS 6 SHSH for your model of iPhone.They don't need to be yours.

2)Download both the IPSW for the SHSH you have,and also download the 6.0.0 IPSW for your iPhone

3)Download iFaith 1.5.3,download iReb r7,download redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and download iTunes 11.05(skip if you already have iTunes 11.05 or lower)

4)Create a custom signed IPSW using the normal IPSW and the SHSH you downloaded

5)After the custom signed IPSW is made,go into iReb and put your iPhone into Pwned DFU.

6)Go into iTunes,hold Shift and click Restore.Select your signed IPSW.

7)If all goes well,iTunes should show you an error at the end of the restore process.Now open redsn0w,go into Extras>Select IPSW and select the 6.0.0 IPSW.Click Recovery fix.

8)When the pineapple dude finishes that, go into Extras>Select IPSW and select the 6.0.0 IPSW again.Click Just Boot.

Your iPhone should boot up into iOS.Note that every time your device locks,you try to go to the lock screen,your respring,reboot or run out of battery,you will need to select the 6.0.0 IPSW in redsn0w and Just Boot

If this doesn't work,and you get stucked on a black screen,connect to iTunes,hold power and home for 10 seconds,let go of power but keep holding home for another 10 seconds.Then click Restore in iTunes(don't hold Shift).You will be taken back to 7.1.1

P.S. redsn0w's Jailbreak can be used to install Cydia (after step 8) followed by installing and enabling Insomnia to avert the sleep, lock and respring hibernations.

@King Shoot I suspect that Cydia's free Insomnia tweak could overcome the sleep bug.

(27 Apr '14, 11:59) IgetITeh IgetITeh's gravatar image

Hmm,I might try it.I will also try to install the untether package and dump valid blobs.

(27 Apr '14, 13:10) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

How can this be better than a tethered 7.1.1 jailbreak?

(27 Apr '14, 13:42) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

It's known that you cannot dump valid shsh blobs from a broken restore.

(27 Apr '14, 13:43) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

Well,if the sleep issue can be resolved,the OP will be on iOS 6,which is a bit faster then iOS 7.1.1.

But you are right,until someone adds the ability to use the untether in these restores,it is close to useless

(27 Apr '14, 15:51) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

(@King Shoot Cydia's SSLPatch is advisable too.)

@justinred Re. "How can this be better than a tethered 7.1.1 jailbreak?": potential Cydia purchases?

(28 Apr '14, 22:06) IgetITeh IgetITeh's gravatar image

So you are suggesting to sacrifice device's usability just so you can purchase a few apps that are not 7.1.x compatible? Gotta admit though, square wheels on a car does look cool.

(28 Apr '14, 22:33) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

Well,if the sleep issue can be resolved,the usability will be similar to iOS 7.1s-Tethered jailbreak requiring geeksn0w(in this case,redsn0w)

(29 Apr '14, 09:23) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

@King Shoot Except the other case would get 'No Service'?

(29 Apr '14, 23:42) IgetITeh IgetITeh's gravatar image

Oh,so this is better? Hooray :D

(30 Apr '14, 09:30) King Shoot King%20Shoot's gravatar image

The sleep issue isn't going to be resolved. We'll see an A7 bootrom exploit before that happens, and we'll never see an A7 bootrom exploit. :P
