iOS versions prior to the latest are not being signed by Apple any more. The IPSW file won't help you here with restoring with iTunes.


0

There are places online where people have kept the IPSW files, if you trust them not to have tampered with this then you could find the right one and when you are in iTunes Option/Alt + Click the Restore button and it will take that IPSW file. I am not 100% sure if this will work because iOS has to check with the iTunes server and I am not sure if it will ...

So, in totality, deselecting "System" worked. I now have a clean slate, while the rest of my apps still work.

You cannot downgrade unless one of the following is true: Apple is still signing installations of the previous version of the OS to which you wish to downgrade, or Your phone is jailbroken, you have saved your SHSH blob from the prior version, and you have a way to run a replay attack with that SHSH blob to trick the device into believing Apple is still ...

Given the length of the UID, I suspect the value is a cryptographic hash value. Hashes are often used to avoid collisions and can be recreated if the original input is known. SHA1 is 40 characters when hex encoded. We can rule out an OS X uuid and Window's GUID as the lengths are too short. Additionally values returned by uuid on the same hardware include ...

Disabling Find My iPhone is required because otherwise someone could steal a phone and wipe it, and the owner wouldn't be able to do anything about it. When you disable Find My iPhone, it requires your Apple ID and password.

Make sure your battery is charged. (If the phone is already powered on, hold in the home and power button until it shuts off, then do the following) If/when it's charged and powered off, hold in the round home button, and the power button on your iPhone. Once it turns on and you see the Apple logo on the screen, let go of the power button, but continue ...

i finally found a rather easy way to read my .abbu file without importing it into my exising addressbook: create a new user, open its addressbook and import the .abbu. This way i could select a couple of strangely lost contacts, export this selection and import it into my exising contacts.

Did you open iCloud on the iPhone 4 and backup your data there? If so, it is pretty easy. Just enter your icloud on your father's old phone using the same Apple account, download data to it, things done.

You can also configure iCloud on your Mac to sync your contacts. Go to Preferences > Internet Accounts > iCloud and check Contacts. That will restore them to your Mac and keep them in sync with your iOS devices (iPhone in this case), so if you add, delete, or change a contact in any of your devices it will reflect on the rest.

You can export the .vcf from your iCloud account and import them back to the Contacts.app on your computer. First login to your icloud.com account. Navigate to the "Contacts" section. In the bottom left of your contacts click the gear icon. Choose "Select All" or whatever contacts you want to export to your computer. Choose "Export vCard" This will ...

I have realised that wiping the iPhone does not downgrade it, so it was as simple as setting it up as a new iPhone, updating it, wiping it, and then restoring. This can all be done without a computer (as per my question), unlike the other answers.

Just update on the iPhone. Then when you want to restore, connect to iTunes and "restore from backup" (your old phone), this brings back the latest backup data (w/o iOS) from your old phone.


0

Theoretically yes. The restore process upgrades your device to the latest version of iOS, so the fact it's a backup from an older version shouldn't cause problems. There is nothing that should cause permanent damage to your device by trying. That said, I would follow @JasonCramer's steps of trying to get it out of DFU mode first before attempting to ...

If you want to make a backup from your iPod to your iPhone you will have problems, because the Apple's script is not accepting iOS minor than 8 right now (That's called downgrade). But if want to make an "Upgrade" so you have no problem with that, and it will work even with different devices.

Unfortunately the short answer to your question is no, but I have a solution that should be workable to solve your problem. First of all, you may be able to restore an iPhone backup to an iPod or vice-versa, but this is not going to fix the issue. To expound on the rest: Apple no longer supports the SHSH blob files that used to be usable to restore to ...

Yes, this works fine. Device backups are interchangeable between device models, including iPad ⇔ iPhone.
