Can't downgrade iphone 3gs from ios 5 beta 7 to ios 4.3.5? :(
So I made the mistake of attempting to downgrade from ios 5 beta 7 to ios 4.3.5 on my iPhone 3gs. I was able to do it on the Ipad 1, i thought it would be as easy...I was wrong.
I option clicked "restore" in itunes to restore to the downloaded 3gs firmware 4.3.5, but it got stuck in a "recover mode" loop (error 1015). The latest versions of Tinyumbrella and Recboot were unable to kick the iphone out of recover mode.
I figured since I couldn't kick it out of the recover mode, I would have to try to jailbreak/boot tethered. Redsn0w froze at "installing activation bundles" for a very long time. I assume it failed, but the iphone managed to reboot itself. I used redsn0w to boot tethered...and now the phone is in "emergency call" mode only.
I think i currently bricked my 3gs...I think i'm going to have to wait for a newer version tinyumbrella/recboot can kick the 3gs out of recover mode.
I'm hoping i'm wrong though. anybody have any ideas?
