Downgrade iOS 5 to iOS 4.3.3

Downgrading from iOS 5 beta to iOS 4.3.3 or later is easier compared to other downgrades as you don’t require TinyUmbrella for doing it . If you have upgraded to iOS 5 beta (following our iOS 5 upgrade tutorial) this downgrade method should come in handy . Please note that once you have the iOS 5 public release , downgrade may not be possible as TinyUmbrella Restore method (using SHSH Blobs ) ceases to function on iOS 5 .
