How to downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 on iPhone 5s, iPad mini 2, and iPad Air
IOS devices with A7 processor (iPhone 5s, iPad mini 2, and iPad Air) can still be rolled back to iOS 10.3.3.
This is possible due to the fact that devices with an A7 chip and iOS 9 or lower need to be updated to iOS 10.3.3 in order to be able to upgrade to iOS 11. It is still unclear how long the rollback will take, since the signature may close at any time.
Models with A8 processor and newer can be upgraded immediately to iOS 11, and the only signed version is now iOS 11.2.6, so there is no chance of a rollback.
This instruction will be useful only to those lucky with iOS 11.1.2 and below on the following devices:
- iPhone 5s (iPhone6.1 and iPhone 6.2)
- iPad mini 2 (iPad4.4; iPad4.5 and iPad4.6)
- iPad air (iPad4,1; iPad4,2 and iPad4,3)
Owners of other devices are strictly prohibited from following the instructions, as this will force an update to the latest available version of the system. Take this warning responsibly.
If you are the owner of one of the above devices, and you have a valid iOS 10.3.3.shsh2 blob, you can proceed.
For example, we used a PC with Windows PC and iPhone 5s (GSM).
What needs to be prepared
- You will need at least 10GB of free memory on your computer’s hard drive.
- A valid iOS 10.3.3.shsh2 blob file for your device.
- IOS 10.3.3.ipsw file for your device.
- You need to download the following to your device using Cydia Impactor:
- For iOS 9 PhoenixNonce.ipa from here:
- For iOS 10 v0rtexNonce.zip (v0rtexNonce.ipa) from here:
- For iOS 11 NonceSet1112.ipa from here:
- BuildManifest.plist file for your model from here:
- The futurerestore program, which can be downloaded from here:
How to downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 on iPhone 5s, iPad mini 2, and iPad Air
Extract the downloaded archive “futurerestore.zip” to a folder on your hard drive called futurerestore (for example, D: ∖ futurerestore) and copy the iOS 10.3.3.shsh2 blob to it. Also copy the iOS 10.3.3.ipsw file to this folder. To make it easier to type the command later, the.shsh2 file can be renamed to “my.shsh2”, and the iOS 10.3.3.ipsw file to “restoreto.ipsw”.
Open iOS 10.3.3.ipsw using 7zip or any similar program and copy the.bbfw and.im4p files to your futurerestore folder. Example: for iPhone 5s (GSM) copy Mav7Mav8-7.60.00.Release.bbfw (in “Firmware“) and sep – firmware.n53.RELEASE.im4p (in “Firmwareall_flash“). The file names of other models will be slightly different, but the numbers will be 7.60.00 everywhere.
Type this line into your PhoenixNonce, v0rtexNonce or NonceSet1112 app and hit enter. During the process, the device may reboot, this is normal. When finished, reboot the device again and open the program to make sure the result is successful. If nothing new appears, repeat the process.
Connect your iOS device to your computer. iTunes should not work at this time, and there should also be a stable network connection. Open a command prompt and navigate to “D: ∖ futurerestore”. All the necessary files by this point should be in the folder. Then enter the following command:
If you haven’t changed the names of the files, the command will look like this:
Pressing Enter, you will see a long message. Do not interrupt the process until it is completed. It will continue on your device, and then you will see the familiar power-on screen.
Each time the device exits recovery mode, the process will need to be repeated, starting from step 3.
You can exit recovery mode with the following command:
This manual is intended for users with sufficient skill for such operations. In the process, something may not work out for you, and the device will have to be updated to the latest available iOS version, i.e. you will lose your jailbreak. Read each instruction carefully and delve into each word. You can upgrade or roll back to an unsigned firmware version only if you have saved its SHSH blobs files. We used an iPhone 5s and rolled back to iOS 11.0.3, which doesn’t have the gyroscope bug found in iOS 11.1.x. If you already have a jailbreak installed and your device has 10GB of free memory, your chances of a successful rollback are much higher.
How to downgrade to unsigned iOS using “futurerestore
Today, we’ll cover in detail how to downgrade to an iOS version that is no longer signed. For example, before iOS 11.1.2, which can be jailbroken. The method used was tested on an attempt to rollback the iPhone 5s to iOS 11.1.2, and then to iOS 11.0.3. Everything worked out.
After the release of updates, Apple usually stops signing previous versions of iOS after two weeks. This strategy is used by the company to combat jailbreak. If the firmware file is not signed, you cannot roll back to it, and, accordingly, install a jailbreak. The ability to upgrade or downgrade to unsigned iOS versions is very useful if you would like to jailbreak your device. Using the method below, you can downgrade to iOS 11.1.2 and jailbreak Electra or LiberiOS.
How to upgrade or downgrade to unsigned iOS using “futurerestore
Extract the downloaded archive “futurerestore.zip” to a folder called futurerestore (for example, C: futurerestore) and copy the.shsh2 file of the version you want to rollback to there. Then copy the rest of the.ipsw files into the folder. To make things easier for yourself, rename the.shsh2 files to “my.shsh2” (your current version) and “restoreto.ipsw” (the version you want), and the iOS 11.2.6 file to “signed.ipsw”.
Open the.shsh2 of the current version in Notepad and look for a line that looks like “0xab12c34d5ef6ab7d”. Enter this line into the PhoenixNonce or NonceSet1112 application and press enter. During the process, the device may reboot, this is normal. Once complete, reboot your device again and open the app to check if the process went well. If the app doesn’t show anything new, repeat the steps again. Sometimes apps just don’t show the changes, so after that you can move on to the steps below.
Connect your iOS device to your Windows PC. Check that iTunes is not running in the background and that the computer is connected to the network. Open a command window and type
If you haven’t changed the names of the files, the command will look something like this:
By pressing Enter, you will see a long message. Do not interrupt the process until it is completed.
In the process, futurerestore may not be able to put your device into recovery mode, and you will have to do it yourself. Each time the device exits the recovery mode before the process is complete, you will have to repeat all the steps again.
You can exit recovery mode with the following command:
Just wait and the process will most likely complete successfully.
It’s all. You should successfully roll back to the old version of iOS. Then you can restore all your data from the copy.

How to Downgrade (Rollback) to iOS 6.1.3 on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 [Updated]
After the dismissal of Scott Forstall, the design of iOS completely changed and many people today cannot get used to the minimalistic design of iOS 7-9 and want to roll back to iOS 6. Previously, this was not possible, but hackers managed to resolve this issue. We present to your attention a complete instruction, thanks to which you can downgrade to iOS 6.1.3.
- Downgrade (rollback) is supported only by iPhone 4S and iPad 2 (updated utility for downgrading iPad 2 is in step 5 of the instructions) on any version of iOS
- Jailbreak required, currently there is a Jailbreak for iOS 8.4 (8.3)
- So far, this method only works on Mac OS and Linux.
- The iOS 6.1.3 firmware file is required specifically for your device
- Download a special archive, we recommend that you save and unzip it to your desktop (this is an updated version of the utility, so there shouldn’t be an error, which is listed below in the “Troubleshooting” section)
- Open terminal
- Next, you need to enter the following commands:
cd directory where the folder you downloaded above is located
./ ipsw directory where the custom_downgrade.ipsw.bbupdate firmware file is located
Don’t forget to register.bbupdate
Don’t close the terminal
Next, install the OpenSSH tweak on your device. In the terminal, enter the following commands:
./ xpwntool `unzip.j custom_downgrade.ipsw ‘Firmware / dfu / iBSS’ | awk ‘/ inflating /’ `pwnediBSS (this is all one command)
Go to the Wi-Fi settings of your device and remember the IP Address of the device, then enter the following commands:
scp pwnediBSS./kloader root @ YOUR_IP_ADDRESS:
DON’T FORGET “:” AT THE END
Next enter yes
Your device screen will turn black. Open a new tab in the terminal and close the first tab, then enter the following line:
It’s all! Now you have iOS 6.1.3 installed on your device. You can ask your questions in the comments.
To install old versions of applications (for iOS 6.1.3), you need to do a Jailbreak, instructions are here.
Video in English:
Solution of problems:
If you encounter this error:
Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libirecovery.2.dylib Referenced from: / Users / “username” / Desktop / odysseusOTA / macos /./ idevicerestore Reason: image not found
then you need to delete the idevicerestore file and enter the following commands (do not close the vkldak in the terminal):
sudo chown.R `whoami` / usr / local (may ask for user password)
Next, install Homebrew by running this command:
curl.L github.com/mxcl/homebrew/tarball/master | tar xz.-strip 1.C / usr / local
Now, most importantly, enter this command:
brew install libpng (if terminal fails, type brew install libpng.-universal)
brew install libzip
Now you need to download the script, move it to the folder where the idevicerestore file was, and execute it using the following commands in the terminal:
cd directory where the script that you downloaded above is located (you do not need to specify the file itself)
After that, you need to run the command
idevicerestore.t custom_downgrade.ipsw as in the instructions, but without. /
Then follow the instructions above.

Disable Find My iPhone
If you have this option enabled, then before the rollback procedure it must be disabled, otherwise iTunes will give you an error when you try to start the process and this will be the end of it. How to disable Find iPhone function, read on our website.
How to upgrade iPhone 6S to iOS 12
Flashing via DFU Mode
Before flashing, the phone must be switched to DFU Mode. We connect the device to the computer and turn off the smartphone. Next, simultaneously hold down the Home and Power keys and count up to 10 seconds. After their expiration, release the Power button while continuing to hold Home until iTunes recognizes the iPhone in DFU mode.
Further, we act in the same way as when recovering through Recovery Mode.
- Choosing your device in iTunes.
- In the smartphone control menu, we find the item “Restore iPhone”.
- We select it by holding down the Shift key for the Windows operating system or Alt for the Mac OC.
- In the window that opens, specify the path to the file with the firmware and click Open.
- We are waiting for iTunes to complete the operation.
- We turn on and use a fully working device.
This method is suitable for those who, for some reason, failed to upgrade to Recovery Mode. With this our instruction has come to its logical conclusion, we wish you good luck in this “difficult” process, and please write all your questions in the comments.
Do not forget to read the comments, there is also a lot of useful information. If there is no answer to your question, and there is an answer to later comments, then the answer to your question is contained in the article, respect someone else’s time.
There are 2 ways to rollback: using RecoveryMode or DFUmode. RecoveryMode is an emergency recovery mode. Designed to restore the working state of iOS devices after they stopped working normally.
DFUMode is, in fact, the same RecoveryMode, it differs only in that it performs the entire operation bypassing the iPhone OS, and flashes it directly through the firmware. It is recommended to reflash this method if it is impossible to reflash the smartphone using RecoveryMode.
Flashing via RecoveryMode
So, initiate the shutdown of the iPhone and wait for the screen to completely go out. Connect it to your computer while holding the Home button. The computer recognizes the phone in RecoveryMode.
- We launch iTunes and wait for the program to find the iPhone, there are options here:
- iTunes may give us a window asking you to Restore iPhone, if so, click OK
- iTunes will not react in any way, then we click on the smartphone icon and look for the “Restore iPhone” item, and then select it while holding down the Shift key (for Windows) or the Alt key (for Mac OC).
Then iTunes will do everything by itself, you just need to wait for the end of the operation. After flashing, disconnect the iPhone from the computer. Long press Power to turn off the smartphone. With a quick press of Power, turn on the device. That’s it, the iPhone is fully functional and ready for further use.
iPhone slows down after updating: what to do?
Making a backup
You can skip this step if you don’t have any valuable data on your iPad: documents in apps, saves in games, apps that are no longer in the App Store. This is extremely rare, so let’s start backing up. Just in case, I briefly explain the process.
a) Connect iPad to iTunes. We are waiting for the iPad to be identified in iTunes. And poke it.
Next, choose where to save the backup: in iCloud or on your work computer. And press the button: “Create a copy now”.
We are waiting for iTunes to complete all the manipulations.
b) You can also create an iCloud backup without using a computer. Settings-iCloud-iCloud Backup-Create Backup.
A backup copy is your guarantee that you will not ask questions like: “Where did my notes go !?” Don’t ignore this step! Before a global flashing, I always make a copy immediately to both the computer and iCloud.
I prefer to restore from a computer backup, because such a restore is faster than from the cloud. Difference between local backup and iCloud.
Setting up iPad
If you have an iPad with LTE / 3G module, it will offer to unlock the SIM card. We press Unlock and enter the PIN code from the SIM card.
Welcome screen in multiple languages. You need to press the Home button (before iOS 9, you had to swipe to the right).
Choosing a language. Russian will be at the very top. Then you need to select a country or region. For some reason, I have Belarus at the top by default (most likely because of the old Belarusian SIM card). Found Russia on the list.
We are offered to select a Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi connection is a prerequisite for normal setup after flashing. We select our network and enter the password from it in a new window.
Next, enable or disable geolocation services. In the vast majority of cases, it is best to enable these services. In the future, you can easily configure them (for more details, follow the link).
Next, you need to go through the procedure for creating a login password. Starting with iOS 9, you can choose a 6-digit password (and I recommend choosing it for security). The password settings can be changed in the future. I do not recommend leaving iPad without a password at all!
Then the user has 4 options to choose from (there were 3 in iOS 9):
We will consider the third option. After selecting “Set up as new iPad“, the user is prompted to enter their Apple ID.
Identity Verification. You will see this item if you have two-step verification enabled for your Apple ID. If you don’t see this item, then it’s time to think about enabling such a check.
Select a device from the list and get a four-digit verification code (Send button). Enter the code in a new window.
After setting up your Apple ID for a short time, you need to accept Apple’s policies.
Then again, a notification about setting up Apple ID and iCloud. We wait.
Turn on the keychain (Continue) or refuse to use it. Keychain Access lets you store passwords and credit card information in the cloud. Information encrypted.
We choose whether or not to use the Siri voice assistant. Everything you need to know about Siri. Siri now supports Russian, so I see no reason to refuse.
Then Apple leaves no choice and can only Continue. That is, by default, sending diagnostic data to Apple servers is enabled on your iPad. I recommend disabling this parameter in the settings: Settings-Privacy-Diagnostics and use-Do not send.
I also recommend disabling program analysis. Click boldly “Do not publish”. It’s safer for the user.

- iPod Touch 6G
Attention! If you have a reflashable iPad running iOS 7, iOS 8, iOS 9, then you need to temporarily disable Find iPad (requires Apple ID password). The firmware will not work without shutdown.
Firmware for iPad, iPhone on iOS 10. Detailed instructions
In this article, I will describe in detail the process of full flashing iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch to the latest version of the operating system iOS 10. The process is briefly described in the article Firmware iPad, but here I made it even more detailed with the most up-to-date screenshots from the moment you thought of flashing. to a fully installed system. Plus, here in the comments you can ask questions of interest about the firmware on iOS 10, solve emerging problems, etc. We will try to help everyone within the framework of the comments.
You can always update through Settings-General-Software update. This article describes exactly the flashing of the device, which the user may need for one reason or another.
So you’ve made up your mind. Believe me, there is nothing complicated about it. Note that this manual is relevant for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. All actions are exactly the same.
IPad firmware up to iOS 10
When the firmware file has been downloaded, open iTunes. Hold Shift if you have Windows (Alt-Option for MacOS) on your keyboard and press the “Restore” button.
Next, select the firmware file downloaded in the second step. And click “OK” or “Select”.
Click the Restore button. The firmware process has started. At this point, it is better not to touch the computer and iPad.
Downloading iOS 10 firmware
From September 13th. Download the latest firmware from our dedicated article. Bookmark this article for yourself. links to the latest firmware always appear there quickly. 🙂
Update iTunes to the most recent version. You can do this directly from the iTunes menu. Or download it from the official page on the Apple website.
Who needs it, here’s a guide for beginners: How to install iTunes on Windows. On Apple computers, iTunes is included in the operating system.
The current version of iTunes is 12.5.1! (or higher)
Answers to questions about the firmware
I tried to compose questions and answers based on the problems that I have ever encountered with the firmware
What to do if I have flashed and selected the “Set up as new iPad” item, but I have a backup copy?
If you’ve already set up your device, you can reset it to run the iOS Setup Assistant again. Select Settings-General-Reset-Erase Content and Settings. Since this action will delete all existing content from the device, only perform it if your data has already been backed up.
Or restore from a backup via iTunes.
iTunes crashes while flashing on iOS 10?
It happened to me once, although in theory it shouldn’t be. Update iTunes to the latest version.
iPad freezes at some point during initial iOS 10 setup?
If the iPad freezes during setup, I recommend holding HomePower down for a few seconds. The iPad will reboot and the setup process will either restart or from where it hung. Skip the item that was stuck (for example, setting up iCloud). Everything can be configured later in the operating system itself.
Yes, and also for the iPod Touch At the beginning of the article, I indicated all the devices for which this manual is relevant. Some points may change, but not significantly.
If, during the iPad firmware, after activation, iCloud asks to drive security questions, a backup e-mail, and then gives an error. What to do?
Fill in these details on the link. Click “Manage Apple ID”, sign in to your account. In the “Passwords and Security” section, you need to fill out security questions and add a backup e-mail if it is not there. You can do this on a computer. Then go back to iPad and continue with the iCloud setup process.
Where else to read about iOS 10?
We have a series of articles on iOS 10 on our website. I will also single out a large detailed review of iOS 10.
