Ensuing iOS 9.3.4’s release, I opted to create this complete tutorial for how to downgrade iOS 9.3.4 to iOS 9.3.3 with the intent of jailbreaking! Yep, that’s right, it’s possible to go back from iOS 9.3.4 to iOS 9.3.3 and jailbreak (so long as you take advantage of this tutorial before Apple stops signing iOS 9.3.3).
iOS 9.3.4 Downgrade: Full Disclosure
Important: While you’ll retain all app data, your text messages and non-iCloud saved notes will be deleted from your device, which is better than the alternative (having to restore from your last iOS 9.3.3 backup, chances are good you don’t even have one).
With that said, let’s proceed with this incredibly simple downgrade method to get you back to the comfort, and the ability to, jailbreak of iOS 9.3.3!
Steps to Downgrade from iOS 9.3.4 to iOS 9.3.3
1. Obtain your devices corresponding iOS 9.3.3 IPSW via this service.
Note: If you’re at all confused, I highlight how to identify and download your iPhone, iPad or iPod’s iOS 9.3.3 IPSW in the above video.
2. Plug your device into your computer via a USB cable, launch iTunes (make sure it’s the latest version), and navigate to the primary device screen inside of iTunes.
3. Hold the Option (alt) key on Mac OS X or the Shift key on Windows and left click “Check for Update”. Point the popup window at your device’s iOS 9.3.3 IPSW; downloaded in the first step.
4. Refrain from interacting with your device until you receive the “Update Completed” notice. If you have a passcode, enter it and wait for the on-device consolidation to occur. After that, you’ll be on iOS 9.3.3!
That’s it, seriously! It only takes four basic steps to downgrade from iOS 9.3.4 beta to iOS 9.3.3. Watch the above video for a complete walkthrough.
Time To Jailbreak
At this point, you can proceed with your iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. Also, I should mention that I’ve released quite a few jailbreak tutorials due to all the update to the Pangu / PP jailbreak (and the two different jailbreak apps) – all tutorials are available here!
