It is certain that on upgrading you will lose your jailbreak, however you can install iOS 7 firmware on your device if your UDID is registered on Apple’s developer program or you can follow our tutorial to install iOS 7 without developer account or registered UDID.

Unlocking your IOS 7 Device

If your iPhone is unlocked using SAM, X-sim, R-sim Ultrasn0w or Gevey sim I recommend you to stay away from IOS 7 updates. The main reason is that the IOS 7 will update your baseband and you can't use temporary unlock solutions. If you are looking for unlocking your device permanently after or before this upgrade, then I suggests you should use the cheapest factory unlock option that is performed with IMEI number.

It worked for me. http://www.redmondpie.com/downgrade-ios-7-beta-to-ios-6.1.3-6.1.4-how-to-tutorial/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter


I had problems with the licensing because I didn't follow the instructions exactly and alt clicked the restore. If you alt click the update and follow the above steps exactly it should work out. I updated from 6.1.3 on a 4s.

You have to get back to iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5) (or iOS 6.1.3 if u are using other iGadgets), using ''Update'' or ''Restore''. Then, click Shift + Update and select the IPSW file. If u use ''Restore'', it doesn't work.


umm, i still dont see why the topic says " without registering UDID " when you cant get ios 7 activated without a developer account -.-


Btw, this post made me remove my jailbreak and all my apps and upgrade to ios 7, just to downgrade to ios 6 again, becuz it doesnt work -.-

i received error that the UDID is not registered, please advise.

Saif Shaikh

When you extracted the .dmg file a folder with a bunch of files was created. Check the largest file in that set and extract it again. You'll find a .ipsw file in the extracted files.
