Where can I get the 2.2.1 ipsw

I updated to 3.0 but I am bored of it already and want to downgrade back to 2.2.1. I have tried to find it online but when I get it it comes zipped and unzips it to a folder, not the ipsw package and I cannot figure out how to get it to work. Any ideas?

ipsw file in my trash

I just happened to look in my trash and noticed that this file was there: iPhone3,1_4.3_8F190_Restore.ipsw I never deleted any files like this, so I dont know how it ended up there.
I have an iPhone 4 that has been running ios 4.3 since it came out but I have yet to update to 4.3.1 Is this file something I need? Or is my system deleting it for a reason?

iPhone Software Updates folder - do I need older .ipsw files

In my ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software folder, I have over a dozen Restore.ipsw files going back to version 1.0.1. Is there some reason that the older ones arent deleted when the new one is added? Do I need the older ones to be there? This folder is up to 2.3Gb now, and Id just like to toss all but the most recent one or two.

iOS 5.0.1 killed my cellular connection and gave me major battery life issues I never had with iOS 5.0

I never had problems on iOS 5.0 then my phone prompted me to upgrade.  So I did, and 12 hours after I upgraded I started getting the searching no service searching full bar issues.  I cant do a thing when Im not signed into my regular WiFi.  No one can reach me and I cant call out.


Is there any way at all to go back to iOS 5.0?  Ive done all the suggested things of hard reset, taking my sim card in and out....this is atrocious.  HELP.

HT5014 Can I unlock att iPhone without upgrading from iOS 5.1.1 to iOS 6

The instruction from ATT about unlocking iPhone said I just need to restore my iPhone using iTunes, then it is unlocked. But I dont want to upgrade to iOS 6. Is it possible?

iTunes won't allow me to update from iOS 3.1.3 to iOS 4 on iPhone 3G

So I know that when it comes to an iPhone 3G, it is better to keep it at iOS 3.1.3 however I really want to update it to the latest iOS. Thing is, it wont allow me to. Everytime I would click on update it would end up saying that my iPhone isnt eligible for the requested field. Its quite annoying and I have no idea what to do anymore. Ive tried restoring my phone and Ive looked online EVERYWHERE but nothing comes up so I have decided to go on here and see if anyone can help me out. It would be greatly appreciated as I dont know what else to do.

I already updated to iOS 5.0.1 but i tried to restore it and iTunes says i need to update it to iOS 5.0.1

My iPhone 3GS software is on iOS 5.0.1 with iCloud and everything. I want to restore it and everytime i click restore, it says an update is availabe (not on the summary screen) and i need to update it before i restore it. If i click okay, it downloads the 5.0.1, then an error message pops up saying that an error occured and it cannot update. Anybody know how to fix this? Any suggestions helpful



Rolling back to older iOS - I hate iOS 6

I need to roll back to an older iOS now. Ive read this is not possible, and I dont believe a phone could be so designed in a way that doesnt allow its iOS to be downgraded. Everyone I know who owns an iPhone 4S is having these problems (I dont know if the problems are specific to the 4S though)


Here are my problems Ive started noticing as soon as I began using iOS 6.

-Phone is noticeably slower

-Battery life is much shorter

-Phone screen locks up for a 2-3 seconds when I receive a text if Im using my phone when the text is received

-Phone no longer gives a notification/sound every time I receive a text. It usually does, not always though.

-When I do get a notification for a text, the sound/notification doesnt come in until sometimes up to 10 seconds after I already have the text in my inbox

-Maps is now horrible

-No more YouTube app

-Phone will occassionally freeze, or sometimes even the screen will just turn off, when I slide the lockscreen bar.


This iOS is just horrible quite honestly... There has to be a way to roll back. Could this phone really be so poorly designed that it cant be rolled back? I have never wanted to jailbreak my iPhone before, but dealing with these problems CONSTANTLY is really tempting me to jailbreak it...


So how do I get an older iOS back on my phone?

Huge iOS 6 issues on iPhone 4S - possible to downgrade to iOS 5

After upgrading my private and the company iPhone 4S with iOS 6 things are REALLY BAD and its on both of the devices!


- Battery life out the window, dropping 30-40% within 2 hours of NO USAGE

- The phones are boiling hot non-stop also after shutting down everything and a bit more

- Bluetooth keep turning itself on but without showing the symbol, I notice it first when going into settings

- Bookmarks gone constantly

- The phone goes slow

- Loss of connectivity across network and wifi on regular basis, glitch and then it comes back

- Apps struggle to install or operate without crashing

- Cant run Google Maps in Safari or the app....wont load the map at all

- Accepting calendar invites results in me cancelling the appointment for everyone on the invite


I have interest in having iOS 6 any longer. Is it possible to downgrade to the latest iOS 5 version again and if so how?


And why the bloody **** is there no official statement from Apple addressing these issues even if it would only be that they are working on a fixed iOS 6?


Its NOT better to keep quiet and ignore the users. I cant bloody work with my phone and my company is loosing revenue because of it....bad decision to go iPhone across the company =(

Updating IPhone 3G from IOS 3 to IOS 4.2.1 - going terrible wrong

I have performed an IOS update on my wife’s IPhone from IOS 3 to IOS 4.2.1.
She has not been very good at taking backups of her IPhone data and apps.
After updating to IOS4.2.1, all data and apps are missing, and I do not have an official backup to restore them from!
There are a lot of precious contacts, notes, SMS and Apps, that only was available on the IPhone, they now seem to be lost!
As an initializing thing when updating to IOS 4.2.1 I recall that one of the six tasks was a backup of the IPhone. Is there any chance of rebuilding/regenerate SMS, Contact, Notes and Apps from just before the update to IOS 4.2.1?
I have located that initializing backup to the following path:
C:UsersITCAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunesMobile Backups88917LXKY7K
In that main folder, I have located the following folders:
Applications, Media, Structured
And the following files:
Manifest.plist, RestoreState.plist
Please tell me how to rebuild my wife’s IPhone.
(A husband in distress)

iOS 5 laggy on games compare to iOS 4



I successfully upgraded my iPhone 3gs to iOS 5.0.1. But Ive noticed that when I am playing games such as Infinity Blade Its quite laggy compare to iOS 4.1. And this was not good, Im assuming iOS 5.0.1 have a better graphics than any other versions. Could it be because iOS 5 is not for 3gs? should I back to 4?
