I have to use a backup of my iPhone but iTunes says that is not compatible with the beta distribution. So I need to downgrade to iOS 8.0.2 but it seems not possible.

Any Idea?

Now I'm downloading it (iOS 8.0.2) manually and I'll try to replace manually.

  • What you are doing should work, however, I don't think we are supposed to discuss beta/prerelease software issues here. – sdmeyers Oct 16 '14 at 14:20
  • I'm posting the answer. Why we can't discuss beta software issues? I'm a developer, I'm not haking my phone (JZsystem) – JosephITA Oct 16 '14 at 14:54

  • If you are a developer having an issues with a beta of iOS then you should be posting it in the forums that Apple provides to developers who are using the betas of iOS, not here. – TJ Luoma Oct 16 '14 at 16:45
  • We considered downgrading from Yosemite to Mavericks on-topic, let's try to stick to the same rule for iOS. – nohillside Oct 16 '14 at 17:17

The only method is this:

  • Be prepared to LOSE ALL DATA, so do the proper backup.
  • Turn off the iPhone.
  • Push the Home button until the iTunes icon on the iPhone appears red.
  • Connect it to your computer and do the restore.

iTunes will, at this point, download the last official release of iOS. And, keep in mind, you will LOSE ALL DATA.
