    Hi guys,

    I found the beta to be very buggy and caused a lot of my frequently used apps to crash. I followed a guide to downgrade back to 10.3.2 but now I'm having all kinds of issues... one of the main ones is notifications, I get the bubble saying how many texts I have but I don't get any sounds or banners, is there a way to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I recommend you take the time to do a clean install, whether with iOS 11 or your previous iOS version. It’s an inconvenience, but the results are almost always worth it, in my opinion.

    I’m going to assume you have a backup already made, either via iCloud or iTunes. Anyway, follow the below instructions.

    1. Put your iPhone in DFU mode. Use the link below for directions.

    https://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/DFU_Mode

    Note: if you have a newer model iPhone, use the power and down volume buttons to get the device in DFU mode instead of the power and home buttons.

    2. Connect the device to your computer and then initiate the computer’s iTunes app.

    3. When iTunes detect the device to be in recovery, select to “restore and update”. If you plan on freshly installing iOS 11, you need to have the associated .ipsw file already downloaded from the developer site, and instead of selecting “restore and upgrade”, press the option key while select restore to direct iTunes to the location of the .ipsw file.

    4. After the process is complete, you will be met with the welcome screen. Follow the prompts to select the language, etc., and when you’re prompted to install from a backup, choose to set up the device as new.

    This is exactly what I did and it worked on my 7Plus as well.

    Are you certain you’re in DFU mode? If there is anything on your iPhone’s display then you’re not in DFU mode. Also, to exit DFU mode, simply press both the power and home or power and down volume buttons until you see the  logo. Afterwards, release both buttons and let the device boot to the lock screen like it did before.

    Now in regard you getting an iPhone can’t be restored error, make sure you have the latest iTunes app installed on your computer and then try again. You may have to try multiple times, but it’ll eventually take.

    Was definitely in DFU mode as I got a prompt flash up in iTunes saying there was a device in recovery mode. I think my iTunes might be out of date and need an update, maybe that is the issue... will update iTunes and try again!!

    Correct you will need to update. Also if it needs to download. after a while the device will reboot and need put back in DFU mode if the OS has not started to install.

    Thank you. I do a clean install with every new full release of iOS and sometimes with intermittent releases, and as I’ve stated numerous times in the past, I honestly believe it has kept me from experiencing various problems a good deal of others have experienced. I really do believe that.
