    Just wondering if anyone has tried to downgrade from IO6? I am on many forums and on one of the non IPad four a some of the chatter has been how much they hate the new upgrade. Someone put up a link on how to downgrade. Just curious if its a good idea or not and if anyone has tried to do it?

    You can't downgrade as Apple closed that window 2 days after the new iOS release.

    This link refers to a procedure for downgrading to iOS 5.1.1 while the signing window was still open. The article was written the morning that the signing window was closed, about 1.5 hours before the signing window closed. This method will not work now that the signing window is closed.

    Yeah, but if you notice, that article is dated for two days after iOS 6 came out. Yes, you could go back to iOS 5.1.1 while the window was still open but, as was mentioned, Apple has closed the window and the only iOS that can be put on an iPad is iOS 6. The author should have put in a qualifier that downgrading to iOS 5.1.1 was only while the window was open.

    Guarantee you, at this moment in time - there is no way to downgrade an iPad from iOS 6 to iOS 5.1.1. None.

    Edit to add: Dang, you type fast, Scifan! :D

    IMHO the people who have excepted the new iOS6 already have been down graded.

    Well thanks for the confirmation, I am no Apple expert by far. Heck I am still getting used to the entire Apple idea and my new Ipad2 device. Although I have no issues or problems with the new IO6 I myself feel like my Ipad2 runs smoother or faster there is a difference I am just not sure what exactly other than looks and certain icons missing etc. But I like the new upgrade myself. I was just reading on the other forum how many guys dislike it and wish they had never done it. Thought maybe someone had a way of going back in time. But you all confirmed it so I wont even bother reading into these things any more. I am happy where my Ipad2 is at with IO6..

    Thanks for the confirmation now I can go back and tell all those guys I know beter!! LOL

    Find someone with a iPad2 who has not upgraded their OS and you run Apple Maps and the other person run Google Maps. See who is happy then with their iPads.

    If you like the update I see no reason wanting to go back anyway.

    Yeah no real reason to go back I just feel like I am missing out having jumped the gun and just downloaded the update before really getting used to or trying out the older IO version. But I guess I cant miss something I never really knew right?? I guess its just curiosity...
