For a better performance and speed boost, you can now downgrade iOS 10.3.3 to iOS 8.4.1 that too without SHSH blobs on iPhone 5. Here’s the guide on how to do so.
And of course, the world of jailbreaking can be more complicated one at the best of times, though, if you start to include older devices into the mix. Along with the older versions of iOS as well, things really start to get out of hands. For instance, what would you say if we told that anyone running a jailbroken version of iOS 10 on an iPhone 5 can simply and easily downgrade to iOS 8.4.1 with relative ease without Blobs?
There’s a reason to do exactly that aforementioned. First off, doing so, performance increases from dropping back to iOS 8.4.1 from iOS 10.3.x on an old 32-bit device (iPhone 5) should not be underestimated. Each new version of iOS does tend to make older hardware perform less optimally. There is also the fact with the iPhone 5 being a 32-bit device, iOS 10.3.3 is the last firmware version available for it. That version of iOS is jailbreakable using recently released h3lix jailbreak.
Now, when you think about downgrading, this process otherwise doesn’t require SHSH blobs, it does require you to have jailbreak on the device before you can downgrade. There’s also jailbreak available on iOS 8.4.1, should appear to get jailbroken on that firmware after the downgrade process.
Here we go!
Step 1: On your jailbroken device, go to Cydia > Sources > Add and then add the repo.ftios.vn repository.
Step 2: Go to the newly added ftios.vn repository and install the “Downgrade iOS 10.x to 8.x” package.
Step 3: After installation, respring/reboot your device. This might take some time – sit tight!
Step 4: Once completed, navigate to Settings > General > Software Update and install iOS 8.4.1 OTA update.
Step 5: Jsut installing iOS 8.4.1, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all contents and settings.
Step 6: That’s it. At this point, you can re-jailbreak if you wish using yalu841.
Update x1: This same process may work well with an iPad 4 but that is as yet unconfirmed. Use at your own risk, if that’s the device you want to downgrade!
