These are instructions on how to downgrade your iPhone firmware using TinyUmbrella. In order to follow this tutorial you must already have saved your SHSH Blobs for the firmware you want to restore to.



You can use this tutorial to downgrade to iOS 4.3.3 in order to jailbreak using JailbreakMe. The Mac version of this tutorial is here.
