How to fix some mysterious problems.

Yesterday I downgraded to 5.1.1 and got the App Store from /Applications/, then upgraded to 6.1.6 in hopes of being able to make the App Store on 6.1.6 look like the one on iOS 5.

First I tried replacing the app, as expected leads to a crash. Then I tried replacing the 6.1.6 UI images with 5.1.1 ones, the app does show the 5.1.1 background before it switches back to the 6.1.6 one. Editing system version in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppStoreUI.framework, but it didn't work, and it made Cydia think the device was on 5.1.1 and it tried to remove p0sixpwn.

I know this can be done, but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Which files should I replace and what should I edit?

Hmm, what about replacing the iOS 6 AppStoreUI.framework folder with the iOS 5 one?

EDIT: Nope, doesn't work.

Spoofing the iOS version by modifying system files is never a good idea. Why do you want to accomplish this anyway? Is this a 3GS? How did you downgrade?

Ah sorry, I didn't specify the device: iPod Touch 4. I'm not trying to change the SystemVersion.plist, I'm trying to replace the iOS 6 App Store's look or the Store altogether with the 5.1.1.

Well, I downgraded in the only way possible, iFaith signed IPSW.

EDIT: As to why I'm trying to accomplish this: The iOS 6 App store UI is awfully laggy on iPT4, especially the horizontal searching through apps. iOS 5 version works great (tried on iOS 5) so I want to have it on iOS 6.

I would guess that the speed of the iOS 5 appstore is mainly due to iOS 5, not

But aren't the large images on the featured page that scroll automatically, and the horizontal scrolling system a memory drain? Well, you are probably right.
