How to Downgrade iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1.3 without SHSH Blobs

Do you know that it is possible to downgrade iPhone 4S to iOS 6.1.3 these days? Even while both iOS 8.3 and 8.4 are available to users and Apple continues to test the future iOS 9 version [you can download iOS 9 beta 3 through direct links] there is a program that makes it possible to get back to the old iOS 6 on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S.

The old iOS 6 is different from iOS 7, 8 and 9. There are a lot of users who might want to use it again. If your model is supported by the tool we’ll talk about you are good to try and downgrade iPhone 4S 6.1.3 without SHSH blobs saved [you are still advised to save your blobs for iOS 8.1.3 and other platforms with TinyUmbrella].

There is OdysseusOTA program that is created as a command line one. With its help you can truly return to the old firmware version on your 2011 iDevice. This firmware works better on the A5 chip and faster than the current firmwares that require newer models and more powerful smartphones and tablets.

How can this tool work? Apple is signing OTAblobs for iOS 6.1.3 and this is how hacker was able to create the program that can help you downgrade in case you want to get back from iOS 8 or iOS 7 to iOS 6. It looks like the famous iPhone maker made some kind of mistake in its code which allows users downgrade through the exploit found and shared by hacker elghtSpace.

Step 1. Make sure you have iPhone 4S or iPad 2. All other gadgets aren’t supported.

Step 2. Jailbreak iPhone 4S with any program available: TaiG, PP Jailbreak, Pangu etc.

iOS 7.1 Jailbreak Created for iPhone 4S and 4

Hackers found a way how to perform iOS 7.1 jailbreak on the iPhone 4S. This information is official and confirmed by iH8Sn0w. 

Previous news showed us an iPhone 4 with iOS 7.1 being jailbroken. Now iH8Sn0w found a way to release iOS 7.1 jailbreak iPhone 4S solution. This hacker has confirmed that the jailbreak is real and working. It really supports Apple smartphone model 4S running the most recent mobile firmware presented in March.
There is no a video with a jailbroken iPhone 4S. Such a video was posted showing an iPhone 4 with iOS 7.1 jailbreak a week ago. At the same time, hacker confirmed that iPhone iOS 7.1 jailbreak exists for the model 4S as well.
iOS 7.1 Jailbreak for iPhone 4S Confirmed by iH8Sn0w
One fan asked the hacker whether he could untether only the model 4 or the 4S as well. The answer is surprising and curious, because iH8Sn0w said that his 4S was also jailbroken. At the same time, he assured that the public 7.1 jb doesn’t exist at the moment. All sites that share such links are “false” and fake. We don’t know if the jb supports iPhone 5S / 5 / 5c. It is also not clear whether users will see the public release any time soon.

How to Factory Unlock iPhone 4 / 4s by Using Apple GSX Account

It is not a secret that there are a lot of various methods on how to unlock iPhone. Users can get third-party programs that change their smartphone’s code or use factory unlock. Some tools are free to get, but other services are paid for. Right now I want to tell you about an unconfirmed exploit to factory unlock any iPhone 4 / 4S runnig any firmware like iOS 6.14 / iOS 6.1.3, 6.1.2 or even 5.1.1 with the GSX help. Keep in mind that this method might work for you only if you don’t live in the U.S. because it it still illegal to perform iPhone unlock in the United States.

GSX Exploit to Factory Unlock any iPhone 4 / 4S [Unconfirmed]

First, I’ll explain what Apple’s GSX tool is. You can find it on the official site of the Cupertino-based techgiant at

GSX exploit to factory unlock iphone 4 ,4s

This system is available to particular groups of users. For example, you can use it if you are a service provider and need to order device’s parts or process repairs. But you cannot access it if you are an ordinary user. Secondly, there is no way for you to unlock iPhone with GSX if you are not one of authorized service providers working in partnership with Apple. In other words, if you don’t have a GSX account you are not eligible to get unlock for your iPhone. Surely, there is a way to get such account if you become friends with iPhone carriers or repair shops that already have one.

But this task is too difficult to achieve. If you are lucky to get important contacts at a repair shop or at the mobile operators, you should get a list of IMEI numbers on activation policy that unlocks gadgets’ status. The best is to find somebody from some Chinese repair shops or those who have serial numbers of iPhones from China Unicom, China Service and other.

To start with you need to have a GSX account or somebody who has it.

Step 1. Think about a reason [a fake one] why you need to repair an iPhone.

Step 2. Visit GSX Apple site and create a new “carry-in repair” tool. Mention the reason you have thought of in Step 1 and wait till your repair case is approved.

Step 3. You will be able to put the “New Serial Number” for the handset you wish to unlock. Actually, this area is designed for a replacement iPhone you need to transfer Apple’s warranty over to. It also transfers the activation policy with the unlocked status over to the iPhone. Simply enter the serial number of the handset and it will become unlocked.

The method seems to be easy to apply. Still it has a lot of problems. Not everyone is eligible. There is also information that it works for particular iPhone models:

  • iPhone 4 8Gb [Serial Number must End with DP0N, and DPMW]
  • iPhone 4S 16 Gb [DTC0, DTD0, DT9V, DTD1, DT9Y, and DTD2]

How to Unlock iPhone for Sure

I believe the only way to unlock iPhone with 100% guarantee is to use factory IMEI unlock tool. It works for all smartphone models, iOS versions and modems / basebands. It is also good for a big variety of networks from around the world. This method is distant. It is safe to perform. It is affordable and it truly unlocks iPhone 4S / 4 / 5 / 3G and 3Gs.

Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3 and Use SAM to Unlock iPhone 4, 3GS [How to]

Then came the day when hackers have come up with a method that can unlock any iPhone on iOS 6.1.3. Find out how to perform SAM unlock on iOS 6.1.3 iPhone after jailbreak with Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze.

This method is called “Subscriber Artificial Module” (SAM) and came up with his Chinese hacker Loktar Sun. It allows you to unlock iPhone 3S/4/4S with any versions of the modem. This method immediately was checked by MuscleNerd on iPhone 4S, and he confirmed that working.

However there are some minuses in SAM unlocking and I have to tell you about them:

1. Needs jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3. It can’t be done on 4S because 6.1.3 is unjailbreakable for this model. If you have iPhone 4 or 3GS, you can jailbreak 6.1.3 using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze but only in tethered mode. Which means you will need always to connect your device to iTunes after iPhone discharging or rebooting.

2. No support for hot-swappable SIM (If you unlock your iPhone for T-Mobile, and then changed to another, you will have to repeat the procedure for the new Sim card).

3. If you don’t have activation tickets saved before Apple closed this exploits a year ago this method will never work for you. Also there is no way to get those tickets because it is unique activation files for every iPhone. If you didn’t save them in April 2012 forget about SAM.

So what to do next when there is no way back but you still need to unlock iPhone? The answer is quick and simple. You need others to make it for you.

There are a company that submits unlock requests directly to the carrier. Of course their service is not free but it is 100% the cheapest among other legit companies.

After factory unlock you will get the possibility to use any Sim card around the world and Switch them how you want and how you like. Also you will be able to enjoy any iOS update ion iTunes.

So if you sick an d tired of making the same procedure with SAM unlocking or iPhone 4S user who stuck on iOS 6.1.3 or the guy who hasn’t activation tickets you can go and order unlock for your iPhone and get it in few hrs or days depending on the carrier to which your iPhone is locked.

Next, you will find instructions that will help you unlock your iPhone but first let’s see what you will get with SAM unlocking tool:

  • does not cause a rapid discharge of the battery;
  • support for push-notifications after activation;
  • support for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 with modems 04.12.05, 05.16.08.

Also you must know the mobile operator to which your iPhone is locked. if you don’t know this you can use iPhone carrier checker, fast and cheap.
