This guide will show you guys how to downgrade from iOS 4.0.2 to iOS 4.0.1 / 4.0 on iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G and iPod Touch 3G, 2G. Instructions of downgrading have been given below in the guide.
The iOS 4.0.2 fixes the exploit used in JailbreakMe 2.0 which is the jailbreak used for all the iPhones and iPod Touch. Which means that Downgrade to iOS 4.0.1 or 4.0 is required in order to jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or iPod Touch 3G, 2G.
Tiny Umbrella will be used in the following guide to downgrade iPhone / iPod Touch firmware. Downgrading from Tiny Umbrella means that there’s no need to edit any Hosts file that is required in other guides found all over the cloud and the process could be done by a single click.
iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, 3G, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 2G users MUST have SHSH blobs saved for 4.0.1/4.0 firmware in order to downgrade from iOS 4.0.2.
If you’ve SHSH blobs saved on Saurik’s server via Cydia, download them into your computer first. To do that:
- Connect your device, Fire up the TinyUmbrella (Download Link below-Step 1) and Check mark the Advanced Options.
- Select your device, firmware (the one for which you’ve SHSH saved at Cydia; 4.0.1, 4.0) and Cydia as Location.
- Hit the save My SHSH button. that’s it.
(e.g: to download 3.1.3 SHSH blobs from Cydia see the screenshot below)
NOTE: If iPhone 4, 3GS, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 2G (MC) users do NOT have SHSH blobs saved for an older firmware, they can NOT downgrade unless Apple is signing the Firmware.
