    Default iPhone 5 upgrade from iOs 7.0.2 to 9.0.1

    Hi guys,

    Title says it all basically. I downloaded the iOS 9.0.1 IPSW file and tried to restore through iTunes, but iTunes tells me the file is not compatible. iTunes unpacks the IPSW file and prepares everything but then I get that error message.

    Also, I want to grab the shsh blobs of my iPhone 5 just in case something comes out in the future that makes downgrading possible. I downloaded TinyUmbrella and it recognises my iPhone but it doesn't download the files. Help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Apple no longer signs 9.0.1

    The latest signed I believe is 9.3.2 ...

    You can't downgrade either. That stopped being possible around the time iOS 5 dropped. If it was possible then everyone would be downgrading their devices back to jailbreakable versions.
