Restore iphone 4 without updating software
It's always a bit of a risk downloading software from a place other than the vendor, but I don't know of a better option.
Typically, when a new OS is released, i Tunes will only download the latest software if you don't already have an older version of the software stored locally.
At this point I have pressed "cancel", as I'm concerned that if I go ahead and update, I won't be able to restore my phone with last weeks backup, because this was backed up under i OS 6.
How can I restore the phone to i OS 6 and recover my backup?
i Tunes prompted me to install the latest version (11.1) and I went ahead and did this, remembering that I saw somewhere that you need to be running the latest version of i Tunes to be able to restore.
