Download FutureRestore v161 for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10
As you would be aware of the fact that once Apple releases new iOS, its stops signing the previous iOS version. This makes downgrading to previous version almost impossible. This can be very frustrating for users, as we may have been very happy with the previous version and found that the upgrade contains bugs or performance issues that are too annoying to put up with.
However, by saving SHSH blobs or firmware, you can downgrade to previous version quite easily.
Till now we were not able to save SHSH for iOS 11 devices for future downgrading. However, recently FutureRestore utility was released for macOS, that made this task possible. But release of FutureRestore utility does not brought anything good for Windows users.
Version 161 of FutureRestore solved that issue. It is now compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10.
Compatible devices include:
- iPhone X
- iPhone 8 Plus
