Detailed Instructions on How to Downgrade from 2.0 to 1.1.4 (with video)

Author : The Lone Stag


Hello. If you are reading this, you have upgraded to firmware 2.0 and miss the old 1.1.4. No problem (even though I warned you). Here is what you gotta do. It is a little tricky, with 2 whole (complicated) steps, but it is worth it to be back into the hacking world. Here is the first video tutorial for the site on how to do it:

Detailed Instructions on how to Downgrade from 2.0 to 1.1.4

1. Downgrade iTunes

  • Since you need iTunes 7.7 in order to have 2.0, you need to downgrade and get iTunes 7.5 back.
  • First, uninstall iTunes 7.7. Once done, it will ask you to restart your computer. Do it.
  • Once restarted, download iTunes 7.5.
  • If it doesn’t run, in Windows, go to Start, Search, All Files and Folders. Type “iTunes Library.itl”. Find the file and delete it. Now it should work.

2. DFU Mode

  • This mode is a little tricky. First, connect your iPod. iTunes will pop up and say it won’t work with this version of iTunes. That is ok. You just need to put it into DFU Mode.
  • Turn up the sound on your computer. Next, turn your iPod off. Hold power and home for 10 (ten) seconds (as in 1001, 1002, 1003…). Let go of the power button while still holding the home button. Hold this until you here your computer give the “USB Connected Sound” (“Ba Dum” I think). Then let go. You are now in DFU Mode.
  • Now in iTunes, hold Shift and Click restore. Select the 1.1.4 firmware.
  • Let it do its thing.
  • If you get an error when you restore, use ZiPhone to get your device out of restore mode by running the program and going to Advanced Features, Normal Mode.
  • Once done, you should have firmware 1.1.4 on your iPod again. Jailbreak instructions are here.

There you go. Maybe you will listen next time. Also, as an added bonus, you can watch my first video on how to jailbreak. Maybe this will help you more. Let me know if it does, or if it is just a waste of time. If it isn’t a waste of time, let me know if I should make videos for other “Detailed Instructions”, such as SSHing or Jailbreaking.Good Luck.

    after i idid da jailbreaking.. can i uninstall the itunes 7.5 and put 7.7 again? coz my bro might get angry if he saw d 7.5…

  2. THE_BEST_JUICE, July 15, 2008:

    thanks… *waiting for 2.0 jailbreaking*

  3. Jim, July 15, 2008:

    iTunes doesn’t find mij iPod?
    I can’t restore it?!?!?!?!?!

  4. shun, July 15, 2008:

    If I downgrade iTunes to 7.5, will I lose all the musics???
    Please help!!!

  5. MechanicalMind, July 15, 2008:

    @shun

    Nope your itunes will stay there…. however they may get cleared from your library, but all you need to do is import your tunes from the destination folder again in to the library

    @Jim

    You need to just follow Step 2 explictly. You WILL be able to restore it. Just repeat the DFU mode until it works. The first time i entered DFU mode on my PC, it popped up with a notification icon telling me so

    You

  6. MechanicalMind, July 15, 2008:

    @jalie

    Yep, you can then install 7.7 again, no probs.

  7. Jack, July 15, 2008:

    do I have to pay for version 2.0 again when I downgrade to 1.1.4?

  8. MechanicalMind, July 15, 2008:

    If you’ve already paid for it once, no. But you can always find it for nothing, just google ;-)

  9. Jim, July 15, 2008:

    I’ve done it now for 10 times but it doesn’t work?

  10. Jim, July 15, 2008:

    It works,
    thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. enzo, July 15, 2008:

    every thing cool apart from i still geting error trying to restor stom 1.1.4 file any advice? (zipone didnt help )

  12. Gil, July 16, 2008:

    when i start to restore to 1.1.4 a message pops up saying an unknown error has occured (5) plz help

  13. Gil, July 16, 2008:

    when i put it in dfl error 1601 comes up.plz help

  14. Jay, July 16, 2008:

    Please:
    I did this and i do not know how to get my previous library back onto the new itunes. Please, I am panicking right now!! I need detailed instructions ASAP!!! Please, i had over 500 songs, movies, videos, etc. ASAP!!!!

  15. MechanicalMind, July 16, 2008:

    Your itunes will remain intact on your computer, worst comes to the worst just import them all again. Your library essentially is just a link to your itunes folder

  16. Jack, July 16, 2008:

    when i try to restore to 1.1.4 it gives me an error 1604.
    what should i do?

  17. MechanicalMind, July 16, 2008:

    did you uninstall itunes 7.7 and then install itunes 7.5 first before trying to downgrade?

  18. santiago, July 16, 2008:

    does it work if my ipod comes with version 2.0

  19. jalie, July 16, 2008:

    i have a question… wats DFU means? haha… i just did d downgrade and it works… thanks…

  20. MechanicalMind, July 16, 2008:

    @ santiago, should do…cant see any reason why not. Give it a go, worst case scenario is you’ll have to restore which isn’t a biggie

    Enjoy your jailbreak!

  21. carlos, July 17, 2008:

    how come when i uninstall itunes 7.7 it doesnt ask me to restart my computer?

  22. janjan, July 17, 2008:

    hi! i accidentally installed a ver. 2.0 to my iphone.
    when i had it fixed, they’ve restored it to ver. 1.1.4 but my wifi and bluetooth isn’t working.
    it’s not that it cant find signal, its literally can’t be clicked and accessed . . .

    help!

    how do i make it work again?

  23. jalie, July 17, 2008:

    @ carlos

    even if didnt say restart..
    just restart it its no biggie…

  24. jalie, July 17, 2008:

    sorry not good in english

  25. MechanicalMind, July 17, 2008:

    @janjan

    explain more detail please… someone has restored your iphone for you??? I would maybe suggest try restoring it yourself in itunes with a shift+click ‘Restore’ and use the 1.1.4 firmware and if that doesnt work then surely you’ll be covered under warranty still so i would then suggest taking it back to the store you got it from

  26. janjan, July 17, 2008:

    Yeah I’ve asked my friend to help me fix it, coz he had the same problem and he fixed it.

    I’ve also tried restoring it myself by following all your instructions.

    Everything went alright, I can now call and text, though I still can’t access my WiFi

    T___T

  27. MechanicalMind, July 17, 2008:

    Ok so can you still not access the wifi settings at all on your ipod? How about your bluetooth, is that working now?

  28. shun, July 18, 2008:

    I diowngraded my itunes to 7.5, put my itouch into DFU mode and did a restore to 1.1.4 but it still gives me an error 1601 so i used Z iphone to restart in normal mode but it says permission denied and won’t do anything.
    plz help!!

  29. Beeman, July 19, 2008:

    I downgraded my itunes, then it said something about that itunes library file, i looked for it, there were two, I deleted one, but it wont let me deleter the other one, it says it is no longer available, you wouldt think that would be a problem, but then I still cant open itunes 7.5, whats wrong?

  30. hanky, July 19, 2008:

    hi i have followed all your instruction however i get a error message the ipod “ipod” could ot be restored an unkinw error occurred(-11). can you help at the last stage ware you have said press shift and locate your file to downgrade.

  31. Antoine, July 19, 2008:

    OK. it worked just fine for me and i had 1.1.5.. i only had it for 20 min and i already downgraded.i like 1.1.4 cuz its better

  32. feyenoord0808, July 19, 2008:

    Is there a way how i can make a copy of my Itunes library b4 i downgrade it back to 7.5??

  33. julio, July 21, 2008:

    thank you Lone Stag for this video I didnt use it for 2.0 firmware I actually had to downgrade from firmware 1.1.5 because it had so many bugs when i jailbroke it and too many problems would occur so i just follwed the step by step vid. and got back my 1.1.4

    And cant you enter DFU mode using the Ziphone program just a question because i read the comments and some people are having trouble with it?

  34. mrnocturne, July 21, 2008:

    Hey,

    To those who are having problems with errors popping up when they are restoring with the 1.1.4 firmware, Re-download it. I had heaps of trouble when I was a n00b because I kept downloading corrupt firmware (or the firmware was getting corrupted while downloading from apple). The best way is to find a (Trusted) torrent (if you don’t know what this is google it) as it seems to manage downloads a bit more accurately.

    Also an easy way to enter DFU mode it as follows.

    1. Open ITunes
    2. Plug the USB end of your ipod cable in to the Computer.
    3. Turn off your Ipod completely (hold home and sleep button for a few seconds and the slide to power down).
    4. Hold the home button (Round one, on the touch) down and plug the cable in to the ipod.
    5. keep holding the home button
    6. The ipod will boot in to DFU mode. ITunes will say there is an ipod in recovery mode.

  35. anonymous, July 21, 2008:

    what if u cant afford a computer

  36. the tourist, July 21, 2008:

    I have been trying to downgrade from 2.0 to 1.1.4 on my ipot all day. I have went back and forth from itunes 7.5 to 7.7. I have successfully put my ipot into DFU mode (not recovery mode) and I still keep getting errors in itunes that range from errors: (20), (1600), (1601)…

    The latest problem I am having is with itunes 7.5 installed, I plug in my ipot and it gives me the “cannot use ipot because I need 7.7) I cancel that out and then attempt to put my ipot into DFU. I’ll power down and then hold both buttons for ten seconds. I release the sleep button while holding the home button and a few seconds later I hear the windows signal for a usb device being connected. Actually, it’s not the normal sound I hear (ba dah) , it’s in the same tone as that but it kind of skips and soiunds more like (da da da) my screen is black, as if it were in DFU mode but it never shows up in itunes for me to click ‘restore’… I am about ready to give up.. any help would be appreciated. I have exhausted all instructions that I have read so far.

    thanks

  37. david, July 21, 2008:

    yeah dude i got that error on trying to go back to 1.1.4 and im trying to click the ziphone link and its not coming up. Is all of the ziphone site down or what?

    thanks

  38. ASH, July 22, 2008:

    what is unknown error ocurred (1015)

    sent from: fav.or.it [FID732175]

  39. Kdvogel, July 22, 2008:

    This works however, after I run ZiPhone again my phone will not show any cellular service. I can use all aps on the phone with WiFi but I have no bars and no carrier name in the upper left corner. If I go into settings the option to set up the Edge connection is not there. Any ideas? My SIM works perfectly in my Zinc II.

  40. Kdvogel, July 22, 2008:

    Ok, I got this working. I downgraded the baseband and all is well.

  41. AG, July 22, 2008:

    I’ve just downgraded to 1.1.4, which worked fine. But when I went to add the sites for the January apps it came up with a ‘can’t refresh’ error. I’ve double checked the addresses and the are correct. Any thoughts?

  42. some guy, July 22, 2008:

    thxs soooo much iv been bustin my ass tryin to fix using everthing on the internet i could find but this is the only one that works.

  43. Travis, July 22, 2008:

    Man, this is the only method i could get to work. I am so glad i found this, I hated 2.0 and i missed installer summerboard, customize, and islisk. Ty ty ty.

  44. Hyuneeda, July 22, 2008:

    If you are getting error(5) like I did, you are probably using iphone firmware 1.1.4 to downgrade your ipod.
    download iPod firmware 1.1.4

  45. MechanicalMind, July 22, 2008:

    @AG

    what is the source you are trying to get Jan Apps from in Installer. Think the one i got them from was ipodtouched.net/repo.xml

    On a side note I am pleased to read that some people can seem to follow these guidelines to the point!

    @LONESTAG.. You could do with updating the site with a guide to 2.0 jailbreak… i’m sure you are on the case, but yeah ;-)

  46. AG, July 22, 2008:

    Tried both http://ipodtouchmaster.com/files/repo.xml and http://repo.applerepo.com, as instructed in the April 1 post, but neither appear to be recognized (this time): they listed are under “Uncatagorized” as an “Untitled Source”. Perhaps I should start from the beginning again – reinstall the firmware, jailbreak, etc?

  47. AG, July 22, 2008:

    I tried both sites listed in the April 1 post, however, neither of them ‘refreshed’ and are listed as an ‘Untitled Source’ under ‘Uncatagorized’. Perhaps I should restart the process from scratch – reinstall firmware, jailbreak, etc?

  48. AG, July 22, 2008:

    Apologies for double post.

  49. MechanicalMind, July 22, 2008:

    ahhh… if it say uncategorised then the source wasn’t correct. perhaps try entering it like http://ipodtouched.net/repo.xml…if its accepted it the title will definitely show up ‘Ipodtouched.net’

    Alternatively, have you tried the iSpazio source? try this spaziocellulare.com/ispazio.xml or if that doesnt work put http:// before it. try the former first though

    If you want to add all sources add this source http://ride4.org/shai.xml and then go to ‘Sources’ under ‘Install’ and install ‘All Sources’. Note though that this does duplicate some sources, so when you say for instance click on ‘All packages’ some apps/games will come up 3 times lol. My touch is like that at the minute, just cant be arsed to trawl through and delete the sources

  50. MechanicalMind, July 22, 2008:

    Ahh, if it’s coming up with Uncatargorised then it means the source wasnt accepted. Try putting http:// before the rest…

    Alternatively if that still doesnt work try adding this source… spaziocellulare.con/ispazio.xml

    For all sources add http://ride4.org/shai.xml

  51. MechanicalMind, July 22, 2008:

    Ahh, if it’s coming up with Uncatargorised then it means the source wasnt accepted. Try putting http:// before the rest… alternatively if that still doesnt work try adding this source… spaziocellulare.con/ispazio.xml. For all sources add http://ride4.org/shai.xml

  52. MechanicalMind, July 22, 2008:

    I cant post anything!!!

  53. MechanicalMind, July 22, 2008:

    OMG! Soz…got a bit carried away with ‘why isn’t it posting my comment!?!?!’ and it looks like i should’ve just waited a minute. lol. Patience is a virtue :-)

  54. AG, July 22, 2008:

    Okay, so I’ve reinstalled the firmware and jailbreak, but noticed that when I went to install BSD Subsystem that it was not available as an install option. After checking the ‘Uninstall’ tab I could see that it had been automatically installed. An attempt to reinstall by hitting the ‘reinstall’ button failed. Could this be the reason why the repo sites are not being recognized?

  55. David, July 22, 2008:

    I have the same error as GIL: when i start to restore to 1.1.4 a message pops up saying an unknown error has occured (5).
    now my iphone its in a cycle (it turns on and off) it only shows an image saying Connect to iTunes…. can someone help me? Ziphone doesn’t detect the phone to put it into Normal or DFU again…

  56. nate, July 23, 2008:

    theres multiple itunes library.itl files but i cant delete all of em how do I?

  57. Colin, July 23, 2008:

    Help for those with Unknown Error (20)
    I just spent a long time working with my iTouch trying to get it to downgrade. I have had quite a bit of experience jailbreaking and such, so i was getting frustrated that this wasn’t working for me. What i finally realized was the problem was that i was not actually in DFU mode, i was in face in recovery mode. Make sure to follow the timing that he does in the video exactly (the video helps a lot). If you have done it right, nothing will appear on the screen of the iPod. If you see the itunes logo with the usb cord that means you are in RECOVERY MODE not DFU mode, so you’ll need to restart and try again. Hope this helps those having trouble.

  58. Asa, July 23, 2008:

    Thank you so much! i thought i’d be stuck in 2.0!!!

  59. AG, July 23, 2008:

    @MechanicalMind: Not sure what’s going on with the forum delay, but didn’t get your last until after I reinstalled everything. Anyway, I tried the sites suggested with mixed results (and yes, http:// was used in all cases). First off, ipodtouchedrepo was recognized as a source, but unfortunately I’ve not had any success in downloading any of the packages. Shai was also recognized as a source. However, I can’t see any applications of use (such as mail, maps etc). Perhaps I’m missing something. Spazio was not recognized as a source (using both .con and .com!) so no luck there.

    Edit: After the fourth attempt to install the apps from ipodtouchedrepo, I had success! So now I’m a happy camper.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Hi all,

    I did an accidental upgrade to v2.0 so I’m trying to get back to 1.1.4 and an unlocked phone.
    I can get the phone into DFU mode ok but every time i try and recover it I get error 1 or 5, any clues?

  65. lee, July 24, 2008:

    Forgot to say I’ve also tried getting phone back to normal mode with Ziphone but Ziphone just detects it in DFU mode and does nothing with it.
    Also tried Ibrickr but that doesn’t even detect it’s there, I’m quickly
    losing what little hair I have left!!

    If i update it, i will not be able to unlock my iphone.
    please, help me. I havent been able to use my phone for a week.
    thank u very much in advance.

  84. Eric, August 11, 2008:

    I agree with Kristian # 75, itunes hates Vista, I have tried doing this about 50 times to no luck. I’m formating in the morning and going with my old XP. I think Vista SUCKS!

  85. Bootleg Eric, August 12, 2008:

    I had big time troubles with this method. I tried everything I read and could think of until I told myself this piece of shit wasn’t going to beat me. So what I ended up doing was first I downloaded the firmware from this link, then I ran Itunes as an administrator. When the ipod was verifying the restore, I unplugged the cable. Of course Itunes gave an error, then I plugged it back in. Then I started the restore over again without turning off my ipod touch. Vista then installed the driver as itunes was restoring it. It finally worked.

    i think you can enter the DFU mode using ZiPhone, just by pressing a button in the program, might be easier for some people :)

  104. nursing major, October 9, 2008:

    I got talked in to 2.0 and I hate it. I have recently downgraded itunes to 7.5 and downloaded 1.1.4 firmware. But after i put my ipod touch in dfu mode and then try to restore in itunes using the shift method to find the 1.1.4 file, it extracts find but then comes up with an error that the ipod cant be rstored when i click ok itunes nolonger detects ipod. I could use some advice. im also operating with vista. Please help

  105. Bob, October 14, 2008:

    Ok, so I don’t know what to do now. I have restored my ipod touch, downloaded itunes 7.5 and downloaded 1.1.4 firmware. i tried the shift restore thing but an error comes up. So i go to ZiPhone like it says to do if an error occurs, and click on the normal mode, but it doesn’t do anything. The green bar on the bottom just keeps going across the screen. It seems like it will do this forever. Anyone know why the shift restore thing isn’t working and whats wrong with ZiPhone?

  106. Faraz Ahmed, October 14, 2008:

    when I’m click restore (while holding down shift) there is no 1.1.4

    why is that because i did click on the 1.1.4 firmware link and downloaded it but it isn’t in i tunes????????

    please answer
    -thanks
