Downgrade iOS 9 To iOS 8.4.1 On iPhone 5, 5c, 4s, iPad 3, 2 – Video
You can now downgrade iOS 9 on iPhone 5c, 5, 4s and iPad 3, 2 to iOS 8.4.1 firmware using OdysseusOTA 2.
OdysseusOTA 2 Lets You Downgrade Straight To iOS 8.4.1
OdysseusOTA is a tool that has been available for quite a while now. And recently it has been updated to support downgrading a handful of devices from iOS 9 to iOS 8.4.1, namely the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, iPad 3 and the iPad 2. Interestingly, the tool also allows you to upgrade from iOS 7.x straight to iOS 8.4.1, bypassing the need to be on iOS 9.x altogether.
Also keep in mind that at this point in time, there is absolutely no way you can downgrade the aforementioned devices to iOS 8.4.1 using iTunes. After all, Apple is currently not signing the firmware for these devices, making the whole process absolutely impossible. But thanks to OdysseusOTA 2, the process of downgrading is possible, if and only if you have a jailbroken iPhone 5c, 5, 4s, iPad 3, 2 at hand. Also keep in mind that currently there is no jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1.
There are a lot of reasons why you'd want to downgrade your device back to iOS 8.4.1, for instance, due to performance issues, or maybe just iOS 9.x is not your cup of tea. If that's the case, then you would want to sit back, relax, and check out the video below for instructions on how to use OdysseusOTA 2. Also keep in mind that the video description on YouTube contains all the necessary download links for the tool.
While we are all up for downgrading, it's also worth noting here that iOS 9 - 9.0.2 is currently jailbreakable using Pangu 9. And given that iOS 9.x is Apple's latest and greatest mobile operating system to date, packed with a whole host of new features and of course, the oh-so important security and bug fixes, we would suggest that you stick to Cupertino's latest firmware for the time being.
If you have made your mind to stick to iOS 9.x and want to jailbreak straight away, then do not forget to check out our details guides on how to do so:

If performance is a top priority for you and you happen to have an older device at hand that is supported by OdysseusOTA 2, then we recommend that you go ahead and opt for the downgrade. After all, what's the point of having a device at hand that stutters to oblivion when the need arises right?
