How to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 on your iPhone 4 using iFaith


If you’ve an iPhone 4 and have saved SHSH blobs for iOS 6.1.3, then it is possible to downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 or earlier using iFaith.

We had briefly mentioned this a days back, but we finally managed to successfully downgrade from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3, so we thought of sharing the step-by-step instructions for those interested in downgrading.

Some important points before we proceed (please read them carefully before proceeding):

  • iFaith developed by iH8sn0w is only available for Windows.
  • You can downgrade only if you’ve iOS 6.1.3 SHSH blobs. This method should also work if you’ve SHSH blobs for iOS software updates released before iOS 6.1.3 such as iOS 6.1.2 etc.
  • This method currently works only on iPhone 4. It is not possible to downgrade any of the other iOS 7 compatible devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini and iPod touch 5G.
  • This process involves restoring your device with custom iOS firmware file, so restoring it from back up could be a time consuming process. So do this when you have time on your hand.
  • After you’ve downgraded to iOS 6.1.3, you will be able to restore from only an iOS 6.1.3 compatible backup. You won’t be able to restore from the iOS 7 backup, so it may be a good idea to take a backup of your photos and videos. There are several third-party solutions like Dropbox (iTunes link) and Google+ (iTunes link) that auto-upload your photo library to the cloud, so you can recover your life moments if something goes horribly wrong, and also to recover the photos and videos you had taken after upgrading to iOS 7.
  • Even though the iOS 7 backup may not be useful once you downgrade, it is a good idea to take a backup using iTunes or iCloud so you can recover the data if you realize, you’ve lost something critical during the downgrade process.

Follow these instructions to downgrade your iPhone 4 from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3.

  • Download iFaith from this link, and unzip the file.
  • Download iOS 6.1.3 firmware file for iPhone 4 from this link.
  • Connect your iPhone to your computer.
  • Double click on the iFaith icon, and click on the “Ok” button.


  • Then click on “Show Available SHSH Caches on Server.”


  • It will prompt you, if you want to use your newly connected device. Click “Yes” to continue.
  • Here you will will show 3 options. Click on the the 3rd option, “Show list of available SHSH blobs on TSS server(s).”


  • This will download all the SHSH blobs from Cydia servers and iFaith if you had saved them locally.


  • Select the blob from Cydia or iFaith for iOS 6.1.3 and click on “Download selected blob(s).” It will prompt you to save the blob locally, select the location, preferably Desktop and click “Ok.”
  • It will inform you when it has finished downloading the SHSH blob for iOS 6.1.3, click “Ok.” It will also inform you that it has successfully verified the apt tickets for iOS 6.1.3, click “Ok.”
  • It will again prompt you if want to use the newly connected device, click “No” to exit iFaith.
  • Double click on the iFaith icon to launch it again, then click “Ok” to continue.
  • Now you need to click on the “Build signed IPSW w/ blobs” option.


  • Click “Browse for blobs” and point it to the SHSH blob you had downloaded earlier (the file has .shsh extension).


  • It will inform you that “the provided apticket looks valid,” click “Ok” to continue.
  • Now click on the “Browse for the IPSW” button and point it to iOS firmware file you had downloaded earlier, or you can ask iFaith to download it for you by clicking on the “Download it for me” option.


  • It will verify the IPSW. If it is the correct one, it will give you an option to “Build IPSW,” click on it to continue.


  • iFaith will now build the custom IPSW file using the iOS firmware file and SHSH blobs. It can take a while, so please be patient.
  • After it is done, it will inform you that it has “finished creating your custom “signed” IPSW.” Note the filename. Click on the “Ok” button to continue.
  • You now need to put your device in pwned DFU state. Turn off your iPhone and click on the “Start” button and follow the on-screen instructions to put it in pwned DFU state.
    • Prepare to press and hold Power and Home button in 5 seconds.
    • Press and hold Power and home button for 10 seconds and prepare to release Power button.
    • Release the Power button and Continue holding the Home button for 30 seconds.
  • After it has detected the device is in DFU mode, it will run iREB and inform you that your device is successfully in pwned DFU state. Click on the “Ok” button, and “Ok” again to exit iFaith.
  • Now launch iTunes 11.0. It should prompt you that iTunes has detected in recovery mode. Click “Ok” to continue.
  • Hold down on the Shift key and click the “Restore iPhone…” button in the Summary pane. Browse to the custom .ipsw file (has the words “iFaith” and “signed” in the file name) and select it.
  • iTunes will take sometime to restore your iPhone with the custom firmware file. Do not disconnect your device until the restore has finished.
  • After the restore is successful, follow the onscreen instructions on your iPhone to set it up. You may restore from the backup.

That’s it, you’ve successfully downgraded your iPhone 4 from iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3.

    • Gautam

      You need SHSH blobs to create the custom firmware. If you had jailbroken your iPhone 4, then there is a high change the blobs are available on Cydia, so you could try.

  • Raja

    I have even blobs but itues says error 11 :( plz help

  • hillandwer

    so its does’n work without SHSH saved ?

    • Gautam

      No, you need the SHSH blobs to create the custom firmware. If you had jailbroken your iPhone 4, then there is a high change the blobs are available on Cydia, so you could try.

      • hillandwer

        No, unfortunatly I didn’t have jailbreak and SHSH blobs I didn’t save. Think the way to iOS 6 is close to me (((
        Thanx bro.

  • thereisnogod

    iFaith has found that following aptickets are incomplete:
    6.0.1 (10A523) [Cydia]
    6.1.2 (10B146) [Cydia]

    *This impact your ability to restore using the listed blobs!
    *Restoring with the listed blobs may put your device in DFU loop!

    I got this problem, any1 help??

    • Jimothy

      Sadly, this is because Cydia failed to fetch all the required files. Nothing can be done about it. It makes me upset; all my iOS 6 blobs are that way.

  • bboyrf

    my iphone 4 cdma cannot back down either to ios 6.1.3 or 6.1.2 because i havent saved the shsh blobs before. any idea mate?

  • helpme

    Whenever im downgrading and its 99% left of the downgrade from 7.0.2 to 6.1.3 (with saved blobs and everything correct) i get error 37 why??? Im on windows 8

    • Jay

      It probably means that your saved shsh are corrupted, try a different save if you got any

      • IAmTheBoss

        Try to use SHSH blobs from the cydia cache server

    • DaDude


  • frivlink

    Sadly, this is because Cydia failed to fetch all the required files.

    • hellpme

      Was that comment for me?

  • helpme

    I finally got it worked! Thank you so much! if you get error 37 then something is wrong with your api tickets or shsh blobs (propably broken), so my suggestion is to try another shsh, for example my 6.1.3 shsh didnt work, but my 6.1 shsh worked.

  • infreeze

    cant anybody just not share a download link for 6.1.3shsh then because i dident save my shsh for 6.13

  • matthew

    I have ios 7.02 and hate it !! Can I downgrade to 6.1.3 as I have iPhone 4 (dont know if its GSM or CDMA .. where would I find out should this be necessary info) Please email me at @disqus_i8kZJxQxXM:disqus could you email me too because it looks like you were able to do it! Thanks Everyone. I hate ios 7.0.2 !!!

    • Gautam

      You need iOS 6.1.3 SHSH blobs for it to work. If you had jailbroken your device it is possible that the SHSH blobs were cached on Cydia servers. You can use iFaith to check if the SHSH blobs are available.

      • matthew

        Can you email me step by step instructions? I am disabled and to do what your doing I may mess up. I do not know what Cydia is or what to do next.

        • Duh

          You’re too late. Your phone had to be jailbroken (you would know what Cydia is then) before you upgraded to 7.x, and you would need also to have used IFaith to save “blobs” and APTicket (through Cydia) also before upgrading to 7.x.
          You’re stuck with 7 until a new solution comes alondg

      • cheah soo yong

        hi, can you e-mail me the blobs??? please

    • George

      sorrry pbut not possible,the phone had to be jailbroken in order to save shsh blobs to Cydia.No jailbreak No Blobs,sorry.but if you bought the phone from somebody else it could be possible that they might have jailbroken the phone which have left shsh blobs to cudia and that is one way of downgrading if the phone was jb from before of purchase.

    Thank you so much! Worked for me. I was trying to upgrade my ipod 4g to ios 6.1.3 and for some stupid reason it kept getting stuck at the verification stage with the message “ipod software update server could not be contacted” and then my ipod would be stuck in recovery mode. Downloaded tinyumbrella to get ipod out of recovery mode. I tried all the suggestions from Apple (install newest itunes, change firewall settings etc). Tried using Redsnow to stitch an shsh file into my update file from Apple (these are all programs that i’ve never used before). Wouldn’t work. Was about to give up and iFaith worked! What a life saver!

      Boley share macam mana nak buat bro..?

  • don

    worked like a beast thanks i know this is old but still i’ll wait til they come out ios 7 jailbreak

  • ibrahim shah

    it shows me these two blobs but after that when i downlaod it it says they are incomplete don’t know wat to do really freaking me out :(

  • Vlad Dj Kax

    Worked perfectly here with my iPhone 4. I was making a mistake in the pwned dfu mode step, but as soon as i realized it, all went well.

    Coming back from ios 7 to 6 in iPhone 4 makes me have the impression that everything is faster now. Even though I thought iOS 6 was the slow one :-P
    Even after the bugs in 7 are solved, I think I’ll keep it with 6. iPhone 4 HW just is not strong enough to bear ios 7, IMHO.

    The only thing weird is that the app store is behaving in a strange manner, warning me of app updates that have already been installed and not showing the “open” button once the app is there.

  • Johnny

    done exactly what you said, could only see blobs for 5.1 and it always gives an unknown error 1604

  • suhail

    hi! on opening itunes to restore! it extracts the software but then there is an eror which says that “the iphone could not be restored. an unknown error occurred (11)”. plz plz plz help me!!

  • ali

    bro what to do when there is error 1600 in the itunes?????

  • help

    on my ifaith it’s says NONE after i click on show list of avaible ….. ? what should i do?

  • Mohamed

    Worked as expected after a couple of tries. In fact, I did not get the option to install 6.1.3, but instead it was 5.1.1. Even the DFU crashed on me once, and restarted the process. It is now downgraded, but I it is linked to the previous owner ID which I don’t have the password. It is NOT stolen, bought from CL. Ho
    How to bypass the activation process? or activate it using my ID?

  • BaRoN

    my iphone’s version is ios 7.0.3 so, I can’t save SHSH blobs of 6.1.3 bcz it is not shown me there

  • Jamie

  • jordan

  • jeff

    can u send me blobs??? i cant download blobs for 6.1.3 email:

  • Binod Paudel

    i do not have 6.1.3 shsh blobs but i have 6.1.2 shsh blobs. with this 6.1.2 blobs can i downgrade to 6.1.x

    • iPhoneHacks

      Yes, you can downgrade using 6.1.2 to iOS 6.1.2 and use Evasi0n to jailbreak.

      • Binod Paudel

        as i say i have shsh blobs of 6.1.2 but when i am downloading using ifaith at first ifaith say successfully downloaded ..then i click ok one error message come like this :
        ifaith has found that following aptickets are incomplete:
        6.1.2 (10B146 ) [Cydia]
        *This impacts your ability to restore using the listed blobs !
        *Restoring with the listed blobs may put your device in a DFU loop !
        What does this means ?? can i downgrade to 6.1.2 ? can i save shsh blobs of 7.0.2 ? Please help me

    • Sanju

      Hey would you please mail me the shsh blob that you have for 6.1.2! Thanks.
      And about your doubt…you can only downgrade to the version of the shsh blob you have.
      For eg. If you have shsh blob for 6.1.2; so you can downgrade to iOS 6.1.2 only!
      Don’t forget to mail me!

  • ulises

    hello am trying to downgrade 7.0.3 to ios 6.1.3 but i never jailbroke my device and then it says i have no blobs what can i do to downgrade it to 6.1.2

  • Calem

    Just a bit of information for anyone who may need it,
    If you have the SHSH blobs for your current IOS (lets say you have an iPhone 4 running 5.0.1) and for whatever reason, you want to restore your iPhone and keep the same IOS (5.0.1) you can create your signed IPSW for 5.0.1 following the instructions and after entering the PWNED DFU state, iTunes will restore your iPhone with the signed IPSW, giving you a clean restore, but keeping the same IOS.
    This is very useful for anyone who may have gotten themselves stuck with a keyboard full of “?” as I had, or wanted a restore for whatever reason, but keeping the same IOS.

  • azboot


    i had saved 6.0.1 and 5.1 shsh blobs (0000037B5516EDAC_5.1-9B176_cydia.shsh) but it would only accept the 5.1 version as valid.

    i downloaded the 5.1 software directly via ifaith and also tried the downloaded ios 5.1 from the web but when i try to do step 5 ” Build signed ipsw w/blobs” it accepts the shsh blobs but wont accepth the firmware i downloaded.

    My device was already jailbroken when i saved the shsh blobs. Is that why the issue is happening here?

    this is what message i get

    pls help

  • cheah soo yong

    if my iphone 4 never jailbrake so can i use SHSH blobs to downgrade from 7.0.4 to 6.1.3???

    • yazmany moscoso

      yes but you’ll need your previous 6.1.3Blob file or it will not. and you’ll need an iTunes version 11.0.5 or lower(im using 11.0.5) and iFaith… remember, this is not a jailbreak!!!! just a downgrade… if you need any other help just ask me

      • Affan Suid

        the question is… how can I get blob 6.1.3 in iOS 7.0.4?
        and I never jalibrake my iPhone before

        • yazmany moscoso

          im afraid not, each blob should be unique to each device… plus its getting alot harder now since apple inst signing none of the IPSW 6.1.3 or lower.. :(

  • Πανος

    Great Guide, and happy new year! I Got two questions!

    1. Ifaith shows only 2 shsh ios 5.1.1 since i didn’t inistalled 6.1 and i had upgrade from 5.1.1 to 7, so is there any hope to downgrade from 7 to 6 ios with 5.1.1 shsh blobs?
    2. If i install 5.1.1 firmware with shsh fetched blob, can then upgrade from 5.1 to 6.1.3 without SHSH ? blobs?

    thanx all

  • Mahmood

    • Macs suck

      Nope. It will automatically want to update you to the latest firmware your device can have. without shsh blobs your SOL

  • Len

    I have iTunes 11.1.2 and I haven’t used it on this comp since 1/5/2012 where the latest backup is. I’m assuming this is a backup prior to iOS7. Where do I find this backup file so I can use it in iTunes 11.0.xx to restore my iPhone 4 to iOS6.x.x?

  • Rolando

    how to download ifath

    • Macs suck

      Look it up

  • Macs suck

    How would i get this on a mac? redsnow doesnt allow because it has never been updated since 5.1.1 and i have blobs from 5.0.1 to 7.0.4 and i want ios 6.1.2 or any other and i cannot with redsnow and ifaith is an .exe and nothing i have tried is letting me run it. Anyone have any ideaS?

  • Macs suck

    Just so people know, aren’t Shsh blobs only built for your device? People are asking for them but they are built specifically for just your phone? I don’t know if people are getting that confused with the IPSW which is the same for everyone. Just a guess but the SHSH blobs are different for every device?

  • Len

    Heya. On my main comp, I have an iPhone4 backup from 1/15/2012 on iTunes v. (I have 2 desktops, the other one was used to upgrade my device to iOS7.x.x.) If my logic is correct, this should be a backup from prior to iOS7 and I should be able to downgrade my iPhone to that backup/version providing I can find it on my system somewhere. Seeing as how my current version of iTunes won’t downgrade my iPhone to 6.x.x, where can I find this back up from 1/15/2012 and save it outside the iTunes directory and reinstall iTunes 11.0.x (which will allow for “downgrading” of the iOS)

    I’m running Win7 64Bit version.

    Thanks in advance.

    once you have iFaith made the signed ISPW your Iphone has to be in pwn DFU state (if you fail to get in this mode you simply reopen iReb). Only if you start iTunes in this mode you are able to restore with your ISPW an get no error.

  • Leng Chin Ong

    Hi, i need help. When I am in ‘SHSH Cache Server’,i was told that ‘the following aptickets are incomplete: 6.1.2(10B146)[Cydia] *this impacts your ability to restore using the listed blobs & *restoring with the listed blobs may put your device in DFU loop. So i ‘browse for SHSH blobs’, it said ‘the provided apticket does not look valid, iFaith refuse to build an IPSW with this aptickt as it may put your device in an inusable state.’ Please help me, thank you.
