Downgrade iOS 6.0.1 to 5.1.1 or 5.0.1 with 3 Ways
It’s seems like yesterday when Apple proudly announced about its latest mobile operating system and call it as “world most advance operating system”. Then on 19th Of September Apple’s most advanced operating system iOS 6 was released World widely. In the beginning it attracted a lot of users as it contains really charming features
like, Facebook integration, more power full Siri with new features, Passbook, Apple’s own new 3G Maps which replaced the Google Maps. With some additions iOS 6 also came up with some subtractions like the built-in YouTube app and Google Maps had been removed.
But when folks upgrade to iOS 6 they found that “world’s most advance operating system” was not according to their expectations, Apple’s new 3D Maps became completely flop, they were not even that accurate as Google Maps App was, another feature which people missed a lot was the built-in YouTube App. The most important thing was that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 hadn’t available, however tethered jailbreak via Redsn0w for Pre A5 devices is available but tethered Jailbreak is itself a problem. That’s why after upgrading to iOS 6 many people emphasized to downgrade iOS 6 to 5.1.1 and they did that successful by using our guide. But apparently Apple has released iOS 6.0.1 which contains some bugs and fixes which were reported by users in iOS 6, as it was not that major update. But many folks are trapped by shinning colors of iOS 6.0.1, and some folks have mistakenly updated to iOS 6.0.1 as their iTunes was giving them notification that upgrade to new version iOS 6.0.1.

In this method I will tell you that, how can you downgrade iOS 6.0.1 back to iOS 5.0 or 5.1.1 with the help of tiny Umbrella.
Step 1:Download Tiny Umbrella. Run TinyUmbrella.exe. If Windows show any Firewall notification, select both check boxes and click Allow Access. (See snapshot below)

Note: Also save your iOS 5.0.1 or whatever iOS version you are running save its SHSH Blobs by clicking on Save SHSH. This will ensure we can downgrade back in case something goes wrong.
Step 3: Click on Start TSS Server and make sure it does not give any error.
Warning: This is very important! If you face any error till now DO NOT continue. Your restore will not work if the TSS server cannot be started.
Step 4: Now run iTunes. We will have to manually update to iOS 5.0.1. Open iTunes hold down the Shift key (on keyboard) and click Restore. Browse for the iOS 5.0.1 or any other IPSW file.
Step 5: iTunes must give error 1013. We want this error because it ensures the baseband has not updated.
Click Ok and close iTunes. You can now skip to Step 7.
Important: If you get a 16XX error then try entering DFU mode by following Step 6 and then go back to Step 4. If you did not get error 1013 after restore, it means your baseband was updated. This happens when the TSS server was not running OR you updated without Tiny Umbrella OR you are using any OTHER device than iPhone 4
Step 6: (only if you get an 16XX error after restore) You need to put iPhone 4 in DFU mode. Hold down both the Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds, then release the Power button and continue holding the Home button for another 5 seconds.
Step 7: Then your iPhone appears like the below screen shot. Don’t worry about it just runTinyUmbrella.exe and “kick your iPhone from recovery mode”
