    Default Backup corrupt when downgrading how to fix?

    Hi everyone,

    So i initially had iOS 8.4.1 and than upgraded to 9.0and than 9.01 and the beta, and the celular data toggle for my apps was not working... So I decided to downgrade to 8.4.1 again, and I read on youtube that i could edit the document in the backup to restore it. Now I have done that and I cant seem to get it to work. It has corrupted. Could someone please help me out? Here is the two areas I modified:

    <key>Build Version</key>
    <key>Device Name</key>
    <string>Stelyio's iPhone</string>
    <key>Display Name</key>
    <string>Stelyio's iPhone - 26 Sep 2015, 1:58 AM</string>
    <key>Installed Applications</key>

    <key>Last Backup Date</key>
    <key>Phone Number</key>
    <key>Product Name</key>
    <string>iPhone 5s</string>
    <key>Product Type</key>
    <key>Product Version</key>
    <key>Serial Number</key>
    <key>Target Identifier</key>
    <string>fb24f805e3f6cad47b954d8f6b9ab17df16269d7 </string>
    <key>Target Type</key>

    Is there something wrong here?

    You need to restore the device via DFU mode and iTunes.
