The iPhone-Dev team is going to release a RedSnow update in the nearly future. From MuscleNerd’s twitter, the upcoming RedSnow 0.9.11b1 version will support to downgrade A5 or A5x devices.
This is really a good news for those who uses iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or the new iPad. It means these people will get the choice to downgrade their firmware.
The new RedSnow will allow users to restore their iOS device without using iTunes. You will never see 3194 or 1600 error any more.
The new downgrading method is different from iH8Snow. It won’t uses APTicket. It will allow users downgrade their software back to an earlier version, like iOS 5.0.1, which providing that SHSH blobs and APTicket have been stored away in a safe place.
If you’re unfamiliar with SHSH blobs and whatnot, there is a chance Cydia may have backed them up for you, so even if you don’t think you’ll be able to downgrade, it’s certainly worth to download RedSnow 0.9.11b1 for a try.
