How to Downgrade iOS 9 to iOS 9.1 [17 Steps] using iFaith or iH8sn0w

If you are boring with iOS 9 and looking for downgrade to iOS 9, then here is the steps and iH8snOw iFaith tool to get iOS 9 once again on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch then jailbreak…

Apple is more concern about their iOS security. To prevent jailbreaking and tweaking, they have stopped signing iOS 9 after introducing iOS 9. Now there are no luck for you, if you have iPhone and or any iDevice which runs on iOS 9 or further new release in this series.

But, there is some interesting news for iPhone users, who have saved SHSH blobs for iOS 9. The news is, if you have iPhone or iPad and if you have saved SHSH blobs, you can still able to Downgrade iOS 9 to iOS 9 or older firmware with the help of iFaith.

We were getting a bunch of request to publish the solution or fix to downgrade iOS 9 to iOS 9, so we put hands on couple of device that run on iOS 9 and as always there is no luck for us too, but when we tried iPhone 4s to downgrade for some devices that have SHSH blobs backup, those iDevices can still downgrade.

Downgrade iOS 9 to iOS iOS 9

So, here is what you wanted to get back your favorite jailbroken iOS 9 once again step by step. But, there is a few instructions which you need to understand and follow. I have mention all of them below.

Compatible iDevices: Only iPhone and iPad users can downgrade iOS 9, if they have saved iOS 9 ‘s SHSH blobs. This is clear that iPhone 6, 5S, 5C, 4S users can’t downgrade whether they have iOS 9 blobs or not, because they are fully capable to run iOS 9. And we would like to recommend you that please take a backup, before starting downgrading procedure and full charge your iPhone battery.

One more thing; iFaith only available for Windows operating systems, so if you have Mac OS, then avoid downgrading on Mac OS and install iFaith on Windows operating system. Detailed steps provided below…

1 iFaith works only Windows operating system, So, Download iFaith v1.5.9 using your Windows PC.

2 You will need to have iOS 9 firmware, so download it. Google for it. You will easily find iOS 9 firmware on the web.

3 Downgrading is possible only with iTunes 11, if you have new version such as iTunes 11.1 or 11.0.5 then uninstall it, download and install iTunes 11.

4 Connect your iPhone 4s with windows PC. Make sure that you have fully charged your iPhone 4s battery before starting downgrading procedure. Downgrade process may consume a lot of battery power, so, its advisable to have fully charged battery.

5 Now launch iFaith application from your windows. iFaith application interface will be open. Click on OK button to proceed to the next step.

6 There will be four options in this window. Choose “Show Available SHSH Caches on Server” option.

7 iFaith will ask you whether you want to use newly connected device (That’s your iPhone 4s)? Hit “Yes” and continue to the next step.

8 This window will show you three option line by line. Choose third option “Show list of available SHSH blobs on TSS server(s)”. In the next screen, iFaith will show you all the available iPhone 4s SHSH blobs on server to download.

Note: This is very important step to downgrade your iOS 9 to iOS 9 successfully. So, choose correct iOS 9 SHSH blobs correctly.

9 Select iOS 9 blob from Cydia only and press “Download selected blob(s)” option. It will ask to save it. Choose desktop and press OK. iFaith will show you the estimated time, when it will finish downloading iOS 9 SHSH blob from Cydia. Press OK. Then, It will again ask you to choose newly connected device? Press “No”. iFaith will be exit.

10 Now again open iFaith application and press OK. This time, again it will show you four options, choose first option “Build signed IPSW w/ blobs”. In the next screen, it will ask you to browse iOS 9 blobs from your computer. Browse it and press OK. iFaith will inform you that your apticket is valid, hit OK.

11 iFaith again ask you to browse iOS 9 IPSW. If you have downloaded it earlier, browse and submit or press download it first.

12 iFaith verify the IPSW and if it is the correct file, it will ask you to Build IPSW. Press on it.

Note: iFaith will build custom IPSW file using your firmware and iOS 9 blobs that you have selected in above procedure. When it finished building IPSW file, a inform message will come up, click OK and continue.

13 Put your iPhone 4s into DFU mode. (I think you know what is DFU mode)

14 Open iTunes that you have installed in earlier steps. It will be open in “Recovery Mode” Click on OK to continue.

15 Now hold down “Shift Key” and Click on Restore iPhone button from pane. Browse Custom IPSW that you have build using iFaith iH8snOw tool.

16 iTunes will now restore your iPhone 4s using that custom IPSW file. Remember one thing that don’t disconnect your iPhone 4s from iTunes during the restore procedure.

17 Once iOS 9 downgrading and iOS 9 restore will be finish, follow on screen instruction to set up your iPhone.

Note: Congratulations! You have successfully downgraded your iPhone 4s from iOS 9 to iOS 9.

From Editor’s Desk

Its a long procedure, it may take enough time, so downgrade iOS 9 to iOS 9 when you have enough time for it to do. Tutorial looks too long, but when you will downgrade iOS 9, it will not be too long as appears.

If you are feeling nervous, above video might help you in downgrading your iPhone 4s. Please make sure that iH8snOw iFaith tool only works for iPhone 4s and for Windows operating systems.

Just make a comment, if you are facing any error.

  1. just changing an old article with new numbers is messed up. How to downgrade to 9 to maintain a jailbreak – this page is clearly a dud

  2. You just cant ask for shsh blob because every device have there own private shsh blob. So there is no use to ask for shsh blob because it wont work, unless you have to saved yours.

  3. i have custom 6.1.3 (signed) i made it from i faith
    and i used ireb
    and i have itunes 11.0.0.163
    when i downgrade , in last step i face that error :’)

  4. iFaith1.5.9 can be used up to iOs 6.1.3 !! it doesn’t work with iOS 9.1 (cannot sign it) and with iPhone4S (only with A4 device like iPhone4).

          1. guys shsh blobs are unique to every device if you do not have your own then you are out of luck although redsnow may be able to retrieve them from the cydia server if you have jailbreoken in the past, i believe that was introduces sometime between ios 5 and 6

            happy jailbreaking

    1. You need to uninstall itunes and reinstall v11.0.5 (that´s the last that could downgrade) In order to uninstall recents versions you need to delete manually almost 2 files… search it on google…

  5. Hello Very great instructions!!! I wanna ask something… why to me have no blobs to select????? Only 5.1.1. Pleaaase help me!!!!!!!!

    1. Of course, the downgrade is a fully restore process. But, you can make a backup using “Tongbu” (like itunes or 25pp)

      1. No.iPad 2 can only be downgraded IF you jave iOS 4 SHSH.You can then upgrade to iOS 5,but not iOS 6

  8. Confirmed downgrade from iOS 9.1 to 6.1.3 on iPhone 4 gsm
    Whoever created this is a genius.thanks a lot
    it took me about 15 minutes

    1. Uhhh,this isn’t new.You could have downgraded/upgraded to any firmware with iFaith for years

    1. I don´t know for sure, but for me (and I tried a lot..) only worked iFaith SHSH blobs, but you can try redSn0w, tinyUmbrella and Sn0wBreeze…

      1. I am running ios 8.1, but my mail, safari, calculator, and weather apps crash on startup. Hence i wanna restore it to ios 8.1. will it be possible?

  9. please help me, i have no pass icloud from my new ipad mini used ios 7.1 what do i do to activate? thanks
    sorry from my english, i’m speking french 😉

  10. iFaith will NOT show you all the available iPhone 4 SHSH blobs on server to download. It says “none” when I click on “Show list of available SHSH blobs on TSS server(s)”. I am using iphone 4, 7.1 wtf is going on?

    1. You have the newest iphone – iphone 4 ( model 3,2 ) it means that you can´t downgrade it because you haven´t saved your shsh blobs for 6.1.3. I am sorry dude, I have same problem as you :-/

        1. Unfortunetly they are unique to your Iphone. So you cannot download a SHSH blob since it is from someone elses phone

  11. hi, i´ve got an ipad 4G (iOS 9.1) and i want to downgrade it to 7.0.6 .. is there a possibility to make it? Please help me .. 🙂

      1. Hi MJ,

        I was also getting error 37 on my laptop. Never get to overcome it. So I used my PC to restore using this guide.

        My suggestion is you should try using some other PC/Laptop to restore.

        1. How to restore iOS 9 from iOS 9.1
          please help me Haris, I’ve iPad Air iOS 9.1 and I’m getting Error 37 on my desktop PC. How to fix Error 37
          Actually, my friend had adviced me to upgrade to iOS 9.1, but now I’m unhappy because there is no jailbreak Cydia tweaks for iOS 9.1
          I wanna restore iOS 9.1 back from iOS 9.1, but error 37 doesn’t allow me to do.
          Please Haris…
          I’ll get back to you soon

          1. As I said before I couldn’t resolve error 37 issue. I just used a different computer to restore. I think it has something to do with communicating with the servers. I turned off my anti-virus and firewall but that didn’t help either.

            So have u tried on a different computer to restore? It worked for me

            1. thanks man!
              it worked, finally, I’m also out from iOS 9.1
              I done exactly what the author has mentioned but with different computer
              I’ve downgraded iOS 9.1

                1. Haris I’m very excited about restore iOS 9 back. I’ve iPad air iOS 9.1 which I upgraded accidentally. I don’t have SHSH Blobs and wanna downgrade iOS 9.1 and restore iOS 9.1
                  can you guide me step by step how to restore iOS 9 without SHSH Blobs or with SHSH Blobs, but how to get iOS 9 SHSH Blobs?

                  1. Did you jailbreaked your iOS 9.0? If you did you can get the SHSH Blobs using iFaith or tinyumbrella. If not then I don’t think it will be possible to downgrade because after the final release of iOS 9.1, apple may have stopped issuing tickets for iOS 9. I don’t know for sure because they were issuing tickets during iOS 9.1 beta release for iOS 9

                    1. I love your writing, would you love to write your experience about tweaks and iPhone? if admin agrees

  14. I never get to downgrade my iPhone 4 8.1 to 6.1.3 using custom firmware :(, I only get error 1600 every time, please help me. And yes I have the shsh blobs + I use itunes 11.0.5 and tried using 10.7 too

  15. Can 8.1 blobs be saved? I want to downgrade back to 6.1 but want to be able to go back to a jail breakable version of 7 when 6.x is no longer supported.

  16. Every time I try I get either error 1600 which is usb port or cable which I know its not either one because I’ve tried three different cabled and three different computers.. Then it will some times say will say waiting for Iphone and never move from that screen.. I hate Ios 7.1 should’ve never upgraded… I had my Shsh Blobs saved from cydia but Ifaith says they’re corrupt and RedSnow says they’re fine

        1. I got my phone jailbreaked , but It can’t passed the activation.. it’s iPhone 4 with softbank locked contract. Any sugestions to bypass the activation?

  17. just download redsnow 0.9.15b3 and press extras –> shsh blobs –> fetch then submit then query if in the last step you found the shsh blobs you need then go to ifaith and try again (sorry for the bad english 🙁 )
    hope i can help you 😀

      1. 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.
